Let that be a lesson
So I learnt a little something on Friday night.
Time to really up the security on this blog.
So, there will be some changes in terms of my photos, but it will make it harder for people to copy them and then use them elsewhere.
Because basically, one of my photos was copied from this blog and put into a video that someone has created and posted on You-Tube.
There was no link back to my blog and certainly no one had asked for permission.
I have since learnt that this is illegal.
You are not able to post photos without permission or without a direct link to where you found the photo.
I could track the person down (and given I have their IP address, that is pretty easy) and have them charged with theft.
Obviously I am not going to do this.
The video that has been made is about WHS and has been created to educate people.
I am not against that.
It is good etiquette though to at least attempt to ask permission if you can. Or at the very least, add the reference (or blog) from where it came.
So I did close this blog briefly over the weekend while I pondered on what I was going to do.
I enjoy blogging, but as time goes on, the privacy issues are starting to weigh very heavily on my mind.
You just never know who is out there reading.
If they wanna try and stalk me, good luck.
I have two big dogs, a small dog and a bloody ferocious cat (who is more like a puma some would say).
Any other bloggers have issues with security? How do you manage it?
