Just to let everyone know that the copyright laws have changed. Copyrights are automatic. Copyrights also include images of any tangible type. You do not have to file for a copyright. This is why I asked permission for use of personal photos on c.com. I can not legally use someone’s photo images in any work that I create without the person’s permission. I am not a copyright expert, but I did attend some copyright seminars when I lived in the other world (employed).

The reason I brought this subject is that one of our members here had a juvenile moment the other day and decided to defecate on one of the images I had posted.. At the time I thought it to be funny and amazed that a grown man would go to such an extent to try to provoke an old man, but the more I thought of it, the more I saw the serious side of such an act. This act could be considered an infringement. A person could be subject to court action. Why take chances?

I am not personally upset about this incident, nor do I seek revenge, nor do I condemn anyone. This is meant to inform only. I am well laid back for an old man and there isn’t much that gets to me, especially crap on the internet. I sure won’t loose any nap time over this stuff. As for me, what you see is what you get. Ask anyone who knows me. The only thing I want/need in life is more of life.

Be careful out there. There are other people out there besides the oil company that will take your money.

Sincerely

Tom

Don't take this the wrong way, but aren't GoogleEarth images copyrighted?
