I find this interesting, as I recently had a bone to pick with a fellow who is posting images of work done by different artists and professionals and he was not posting any info as to credit of the work. He defended himself as using images from Pinterest that did not give any credit to their images and I remarked that the creator of the piece/work is due some credit for their work since there is no monetary gain for them, as otherwise we, as the creator of the project, become victims of cyberspace limbo with our work being seen but never recognized as the creator. His latest posting did credit the artist/architect/designer even if it linked to another page of mass unmarked images of work by many unknown/unrecognized artists.

FYI: Some of the images of woodwork were recognizable as pieces of some fellow lumberjocks.

I agree, Meilie.
Anyone who re-post an image, blog, or other work by another should give credit/reference to said person. I realize when you post something on the Internet, it is pretty much out of you hands. But, at least you should be given the recognition

I don’t really care but wonder how he finds the items he chooses to post. He has three of my things listed, none of which is any more than a simple aid to a simple operation. They weren’t even posted as projects, in fact they were all posted in comments. I feel snubbed. ;-) I’ve come up with some good ones and the %#{%]*^ missed them. :-(

He might even be using automation to grab tags off of LJs. The LJ site owners might have more of an issue with it.

Just saw this topic and realized there’s an important trick to share. I made a blog post about it so more might be able to see it.

I assume that anything posted on any site is up for grabs by anyone who wants it. It’s open season.

The funny thing is, I’ve heard it said on here before and I totally agree, that there should be someplace to post tools and jigs separate from the other projects. It looks like we almost have that now.

Homemade Tools appears to be just an “INDEX”, which is usually deemed an acceptable use (resized single image, summary / sample text). To get the full details on your project, people have to click on the link which takes them to Lumberjocks. If I was affected (which I am not), I would consider it a good thing.

Actually, there are major legal issues here, but the big corporations are the ones who spend big money on this. It’s an uphill battle so the little people just don’t bother.

As a common courtesy, it should be known that you should not use an image posted online unless you 1) Own the image; 2) Get written permission to use the image and give proper credit. Unfortunately, the common practice of the internet society is to ignore common courtesy, as the faceless environment allows one to be rude and ignorant. But only if you want to be. Ignorance is not always bliss.

That homemade tool site just hot links images from other sites. All of the tools in the index clearly show where they came from. A link is included to the tool article on the original site.

About 10 tools I have made and posted to my own websites or various other sites are linked in their index. I have no problem with it.

If they have linked one of your tools and you have a problem with it, contact them, and they will remove it from the list.

One of mine…

I’m not sure there is a reasonable claim to be made against such activity, even without credit given. We freely share our images with the unEverse. (Clever, huh?)

When our images turn up elsewhere, we can at least know about it. Now when our government serves and protects us by copying, storing, using our data, we don’t have any means of finding out.

Oops… Almost delved into socio-econo-politico-religio-tabooificative discussion there. Whew! Close one!
