Of all the photos to steal…
Used TinEye to check a few of my images, and ran across this. It’s an old photo of some of my past computers. It’s licensed as Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial, and a few people have actually asked to use it. But this Turkish site never asked, and even cropped out the URL watermark in the photo. If the photo was more important to me, (and the infringement was more recent,) I might complain.
Instead, I just thought I’d blog the ass-hats and remind everyone that the only sure-fire way to keep people from stealing your photos is to never post them online.
The article can be found here (it’s in Turkish–Google Chrome was happy to translate, though.)
