I have a pet peeve.
As a writer, I have found my stuff पोस्टेड on other websites without my permission, and sometimes without so much as a mention that it was MY article... या a link back to the original. This ticks me off, and it is illegal to do so.
I have not come across this on फैन्पॉप with लेखाए yet, but I have seen it numerous times on images.
Some of the people I adore the most are even doing it. I have to assume innocence here and figure some folks just don't know... so I'ma tell ya ;)
Credit. Credit. Credit. The option to add the चित्र credit when आप प्रस्तुत करे an image is there for a reason. It is to protect फैन्पॉप from massive headaches later on, and आप from being sued.
आप might खोजिए for तस्वीरें on Google, but that is not who to credit. When आप find the image आप want, there is a यू. आर्. एल under it when आप click on the image. From there it is easy to find the name of who owns that image. If it is not cited, then आप need to cite that website in the credit to protect both yourself and Fanpop.
Not citing the copyright owner is theft, pure and simple. Besides, it is just the right thing to do.
As फैन्पॉप grows, और and और people are going to be taking notice. They are going to see their तस्वीरें were taken without citing the owner. We do not want that kind of trouble around here.
In the case of movie and book covers, cite the studio या publisher of the book. That is way-easy to do. In the case of चित्रो of stars and what have you, the photographer is the way to go, unless आप can't find that info, then like I said; cite the website आप found it on, या the star.
Please please please make the effort to do this. I do not want to see the दिन that Dave and Papa are forced to waste time removing thousands and thousands of तस्वीरें because we did not take the time to do it right and legally...
Thank you, Drive through.
