Stealing photos off the web?
How to Train Your Horse
This website (I don't have time to read throught it at the moment..) has a photo of a friends horse.. The palomino yearling.. Do they say the own the rights to any of these pictures?! I don't know if my friend allowed it, but still. I'm wondering ifit's legal.
I think they need permission to use the picture, but I'm not completely sure.
That website makes me cringe.
Same here. I'm about to contact my friend - I don't think she'll appreciate this.
No, they do not own any rights at all, and I'm willing to bet they didn't ask permission to use any of the photos.
If the picture was not copy righted or didn't have a water mark and it's on the internet, then anyone can take it and just put it where they want. It doesn't matter if they own the rights or not. Now if they were going to print the picture and sell it..then that is illegal.
They don't say anything about where they got the pictures. They also don't say that they own the rights to any of the pictures.
I would be furious if that was my horse that they used pictures of. Legally, they have to ask for permission to use any pictures that don't belong to them. They should have asked for your friend's permission before using the picture.
You friend has a pretty horse though. :-)
If you place an image on the Internet without copyright or watermark or some form of restriction, it is usable..........
Of course one should always try to contact the party, however, a great majority of the time that is not possible.
My friend said it's a copyrighted image.. I don't know what we can do about it?
Has your friend contacted the people who own the web site and asked them to remove the photo of her horse?
I would think that is step #1.
