The Restaurant Section
« on: December 30, 2009, 07:42:16 AM »
There was an article on this new site in the AJC Monday.  It purports to be social media restaurant and winery industry.  There was mention of a forum in the article but I couldn't find one without registering.

They used my lobster photo that I posted to this board. Isn't that a copyright violation? If you post to the internet can it be picked up and used by anyone withour permission?

AndyBoy, depends on the legalese of the forum, I guess.

I joined, and looked around. No real forum-style post area (although there's a spot for blogs) that I can see. Not sure if this is just an info site or what, but so far it don't impress.

No, they cannot use your work without your permission and crediting you as the photographer. You are well withing your rights to contact them and ask for it to be taken down.
