Default Re: To Darren...

You stated, "I guess I just don't understand why people get so up in arms when their photos are used without permission." What does this mean? I am not reading into anything, these are your words! People get "UP in Arms" because it is THEFT, which is illegal. Would it be ok if someone stole your photos and used them without your permission. Would you be "Up in Arms?" Based upon your last answer, it would be ok, right?

THEFT is THEFT no matter how you break it down. The reason that I have removed my photos is that theft of my photos will not occur again. FYI, I do have several professional websites that I do sell my photos (Boundless Gallery, Amazon, oldworldphoto etc.) as well as appearing in numerous art shows.

You also stated,

"Please tell me where you have benefitted from what you have done. I just can't see it at all. All I have seen is a loss for you. A loss stemming from where you were wronged, no doubt, but not where you were really harmed."

Wow...That doesn't ever deserve an answer.
