This short note is to advise readers that I will be making a change to my Copyright watermark on images used in future articles here and on Photography Life. Unfortunately hundreds of my images have recently become targets of piracy and Copyright infringement. To better protect my intellectual property rights my watermark will be placed in a more prominent position on all future images posted online. I hope this will not detract too much from your viewing experience.
If you have posted any of your own images on Flicker, in articles, or in any other kind of public display you may want to read this recent article on Photography Life.
As suggested by Nasim Mansurov, if you discover that some of your images have been pirated, do respond directly to the offending website as you then may become the victim of phishing and hacking.
I apologize for any inconvenience that the changes to my Copyright watermark may cause in terms of your viewing experience of my articles, but it is important that I take appropriate steps to protect my intellectual property.
My intent is to keep this photography blog advertising free.
