You will no doubt be aware now that my tumblr page has been removed, for reasons I can only assume are; that I added my own images rather than plagiarize or steal other peoples'. It seems if you are arrogant enough to thieve someone elses' hard work that's fine, neglecting the fact it has taken effort and money to produce such imagery for others to enjoy.

What I find more irritating is that people can freely view my photographs as I add them myself to my twitter, is those that feel a need to remove my copyright details from them, re-post on their own blogs, sites, pages as if they are sharing something, when in actuality they are stealing without written permission or consent to do so. I do not mind people sharing BUT leave my copyright details on, it has cost me money, the spankers/spankees whom appear have worked hard to give viewers an image they may find to their own fair! You wouldn't appreciate someone coming into your workplace and taking over your job or not giving you credit for doing your own work, so don't abuse ours.

Most of my photographs correlate to clips and films, they are all copyrighted, I have all the records on file and I add them free, the only onus on a person viewing is to look, share and enjoy, not remove my copyright details or add their own graffiti to them, they all have their own story which you can read prior to purchasing a clip, once you view the clip you get the whole story and images anyway! I do think it is arrogant of people to remove any producers copyright, why should they not get the credit they deserve after all.

So come on guys, help producers to support their love of sharing their own work!

"Most cases of plagiarism can be avoided, however, by citing sources. Simply acknowledging that certain material has been borrowed and providing your audience with the information necessary to find that source is usually enough to prevent plagiarism."
