Default Photo Theft of RPers...

Someone's stealing a bunch of photos and putting them on their FB page. They may be even making money on some of them...

http://www.facebook.com/TheKentuckyTrainman

Kevin Madore, he must have had nearly 15 of your photos up there. Numerous photos by others. Ron Flanary, Mike Danneman, Brandon Warnick and many others. Look for your stuff.

You will probably have to get FB to take them down, as the owner of the page hasn't complied with other requests.

Edit: Note that this is a model train shop's FB page. It is therefore logical to conclude this is FOR-PROFIT USE.

They seem to be gone now.

I saw a share of one this morning on FB and thought wow, how have I missed this guy's photos - now I know.

Did he like himself?

I love when people do that - "like" their own stuff.

So much for spell check and grammar.

This comment really floors me - by one Brian Snyder:

"Matthew, I am a professional Photographer. Once you post a photo on FB,Instagram,Twitter or any other Social Media site, it is considered public domain...."

Supposedly that was from this guy's lawyer. I don't buy it.

From this post:
https://www.facebook.com/TheKentucky...90259741010191

Which outlines FB's TOS. Yes, we grant FB a license to republish our work - that's needed to allow FB's software to make the photos appear on someone else's timeline. Not for users of FB to use the photos willy-nilly.

Honestly, the ignorance of copyright is frightening. These people think they're in the right.

I get a very interesting comment back from him for my stolen car comment. I don't expect to be on his Christmas card list this year. Of course, there'd be stolen from someone else.

He talks (post) like a teenager. I wonder if any of the pictures he was using was copyrighted?

I went from taking it very seriously to just reporting it to today, after seeing those responses, wondering if I should contact the local police or perhaps a lawyer.

The guy is something else. Claiming he has the right to post any photo he wants to that shows up in the Google database.

I proceeded to tell him different which got me on his "ban and f**k you" list. I'm heartbroken!


Guess you gotta believe whatever is posted on the internet.

I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

I posted a grammatically correct question directed to Mr. Brian Snyder about his erroneous interpretation of Facebook's TOS, basically saying that if anything posted to FB is public domain as Mr. Snyder implied (or his lawyer as he indicates), why have they removed photos of mine after I filed a copyright infringement claim. That got this reply from our wordsmith:

"funny fb removed nothing i myself took the pictures down Fb had absolutley nothing at all to do with the removal of any 1s pictures"

Which was promptly followed up with this:
"only mature and sensible adults can post on this page all others will be removed by me not fb"

I give up...he couldn't even understand my post - which was civil and beyond sensible, so he bans me.

Great business model. I guess I'll be forwarding his name along to all my modeling friends to make sure they do not patronize his business.

The same here Tom. None of the pictures were mine but I, along with you were very civil about it. I doubt when FB looks into this tomorrow he will no longer have a page, or be allowed to start another.

Jon - Now that he deleted all the offending photos, there's not much FB can do. He's now in compliance with copyright law. Without the actual violation for them to view, there's nothing that can be done...

I'll be watching him though...and that's the sad part, the list of Facebook pages/profiles/Flickr accounts I have to monitor is growing...

I see his personal FB profile is chock full of RP photos too...none of mine, thankfully...

FB can go back and see. Especially since he denies any wrongdoing.

If you rob a bank then go back an hour later and return the money. You still robbed a bank.
