Are you a professional photographer or sell stock photographs on the Internet?
If yes then this is something you must know...
Photography is what you do for living or may be just for fun, but you sure don't
want people to steal your work. Internet is a great medium to put your work in front
of the world but unfortunately it also makes it very easy for people to copy your
work and use it. People are always looking for free photos to use in their
designs and websites. It is very easy to search on Google or Yahoo and find your
Anybody who comes across some photographs that you might have published as a sample
of your work can simply save them on their computer and use without your consent.
How can you prevent them? You might think that you will display only low resolution
photographs and users will pay for the high resolution copy. But that does not serve
the purpose, because people don't mind low quality photographs if
they are to use it on their website or in a maze of some design.
People who need high quality work and who are honest will definitely pay, and will
give you credit for your hard work, but we are talking about people who simply want
free lunch! How can you prevent such thieves?
