Cool link Karl. Thanks.
You seem to advocate a more cavalier approach to the issue - I'd be interested in hearing more since you are a case in point in this discussion.
Compare the background in this image of yours
to this image My questions are
- Was this background image, that forms a major part of your pictures efficacy, shot by you?
- If not, do you have permission from the copyright holder to use it?
- If no permission was received, then is it ethical to make the statement 'Copyright: Karl Lilje' in the text for that image?
- Would you be upset if I used your image in a composite image of my own making without clearing it with you first?
Please don't see this as a personal attack. I am genuinely interested in exploring the mindset of people with regards to this issue.
