This started in another thread but I thought I'd bring it up here. I've heard a lot about this but am not sure exactly how it works. What exactly do people do when they steal your photos off the Internet? I never really worried about it until I found a photo of mine being used on the BLM Facebook page, and then all kinds of places after that. I never gave it to the BLM, but I did enter it in a Nature Conservancy photo contest, where it got an honorable mention therefore posted to their Facebook page. That's where the BLM got it, and everyone else after that. The agreement with the Nature Conservancy is you give them rights to use your photo but retain all other legal rights to it, but what happens when it spreads on Facebook like an STD? What rights do you have then? Anyone have any experience any kind of photo theft?
