Good stuff on why it’s important to read the TOS

shark tank

My recent experience with having my photos appropriated off my Flickr stream without asking for permission has reminded me of the importance of being aware of the legal issues around protecting yourself on-line with what you post, particularly in the case of photos and videos.

If you care at all about your rights on-line, TWIPPHOTO has a good (albeit long) post on the importance of reading and understanding the Terms of Service of any site that you’re posting to that’s well worth reading.

The shot above (© All Rights Reserved, by the way) was from a recent trip to the Indianapolis zoo. Any similarity between a post about legal issues, and a shark are purely coincidental.
