Are you breaking copyright law?

Jodi from MCP Actions has a very interesting post on her photography blog today about laws that cover use of copyrighted material on the internet.  She has been the victim of people who removed her watermark and used her photos without permission for print products and internet posts.  When she wrote about the thefts before, it was shocking to me how many people commented that they didn't see a thing wrong with the practice. They believe that anything posted on the internet is fair game.  NOT!!!


Jodi posted a letter she received from Photolaw.net explaining the legal issues.  It's great information you should have but hopefully never need. Take a look.
