IMPORTANT COPYRIGHT NOTICE:
Shots off the Action Snaps or any other professional photographers site are copyright. I'm sure David Lane of Action Snaps likes the advertising but would probably like the $$ more. I have spoken to David and he's very understanding but I would like to uphold proper intellectual property rights on this forum.

We must (legally) make a distinction between linking to a photo you don't own that's already on the web (i.e. in the public domain) and downloading a copyright photo and then uploading the same photo to another photo site (like photobucket) and linking to it. Without meaning to single anyone out as there are multiple offenders (probably including myself in the past), if you don't get what I mean, below are the properties of two photos linked to on the forum and you'll see the difference.

BAD = http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc10 ... 3748-1.jpg

GOOD = http://www.actionsnaps.com.au/images/zo ... c_3612.jpg

Can all posters please be aware of this difference and act accordingly. Please Do NOT download copyrighted photo's and then link to them on this site (in Action Snaps case, it's pretty obvious, there's a huge watermark C in a circle in the middle of the shot and the file name).

In future I will be DELETING all posts that contravene this standard.

Furthermore, If you link to a photo from any copyrighted photo site, please place a link to the photographers site in your post - its common courtesy - they're trying to make a living!

If you purchased the photo from Action Snaps then it's fine to link to it from another site but a nod to David and his site wouldn't go astray. For other photographers, please check before you post.

Good is not good. The reason people use an image hosting service, is because it is considered poor form to hotlink an image without permission from someones server. This uses their bandwidth everytime the page is viewed, and on more popular sites can cause significant cost to the owner.

There has been many an incident where someone will configure their web server to display offensive images in place of hotlinked ones.

Geoff, how did you gain access to that page? I thought about it when I searched but couldn't find the link by following any of the visible links on our site. Unless I missed it, I think we should have that paged link in the FAQ section.
