I saw your post earlier today and thought "very nice" but didn't comment publicly, something I rarely do these days.
And now I see that a new member violated your copyright. It's been quite a while since we saw this last and
I'm very sorry indeed that it has happened. Actually I'm more than sorry as it makes me furious that any member
can behave so irresponsibly.
However I hope some good may come of it as I've just realised that we don't have a specific clause forbidding this
sort of copyright violation in our rules so I'm going to take pre-emptive action and amend those rules. Such amendment
will be subject to Gordon's final approval when he gets back shortly from Florida but I hope that it will go some way
towards rectifying the situation. Here's my first draft which I have inserted into our forum rules:
As a photography forum we are always delighted when members choose to share their work here. In doing so they do,
of course, retain full copyright and that means that no member may repost other member's images, either in original
or edited form, without the explicit permission of that member. Such permission may be given in the containing post
or may be sought via PM. Any violation of another member's copyright will be viewed most seriously!
