[filmscanners] Re: Copyright of photos



Unfortunately, there is no way to prevent visitors to your Web site from
stealing the images you display upon it.  Jim's method is easily defeated
(you can take a screen shot by pressing Print Screen and capture the image
for later use, with or without a transparent GIF).

The reality is that you cannot simultaneously allow visitors to view an
image and yet prevent them from saving a copy of the image.  The only option
you have, then, is to not put anything on your site that you cannot afford
to have stolen.

In my case, I don't worry a lot, since, even if someone likes my image
enough to steal it, the resolution of the image is generally too low to
permit decent printing.  An 800x600 image looks large on a screen, but only
measures about 2x3 inches when printed at a decent resolution on a good
printer.  So anyone who wants a really high-resolution copy of one of my
images will still have to license it from me.  I can't do much about people
who steal and use the low-resolution versions on my site, short of suing
them, which I usually cannot afford to do, even if I find out about them.

Subject: [filmscanners] Copyright of photos


The copyright of photos on the internet had quite a thrashing on this list a
few months ago, but did any solution to the problem of people stealing
copyrighted images come up? On the nyip.com website this month,
http://www.nyip.com/tips/digital_dialog0402.php Jim Barthman has come up
with what could be an answer, involving placing a transparent GIF over the
image you want to protect from downloading.
