Dupa vreo 2 stergeri de conturi de youtube, din care ultimul e fraudulos, dar n-ai cu cine discuta, azi a venit randul alora de la iStockphoto sa ma contacteze pentru o poza … de cand cucii. Mai precis din 2006, o poza la un articol in care vorbeam eu de cum mi-am reparat singur o teava de apa sparta.

Interesant e ca omul asta, pe langa jobul ingrat de a trimite mailuri oamenilor care iau poze de pe net fara permisiune, sta sa se uite cine’s oamenii, care’s modalitatile de contact si asa mai departe. OMG! Adica unora le pasa? Sau e din cauza ca e criza si hai sa scoatem niste bani.

Bine, nu pot sa nu remarc safariul baiatului si ce tab-uri avea deschise pe acolo.

Si m-a contactat baiatul asta si a zis urmatoarele:

I-am raspuns pe un ton amuzat, ca era sa-l bag in spam din reflex. Adica de ce sa ma caute pe mine iStockphoto si ca i-am schimbat poza. Poza pe care o vedeti si voi la adresa mai sus mentionata 🙂

Concluzia e simpla. Poze cu drepturi de autor. BTW Reuters si AFP au birouri in Romania si ard la sange oricine fura, preia, copiaza poze sau informatii de la ei de la trusturi mari de presa, la bloggarasi din astia mici.

    Sigur ca unora le pasa. Cum ti-ar pasa si tie daca cineva ti-ar copia articolele fara permisiune si le-ar pune pe blogul/site-ul propriu. Sau nu ti-ar pasa?

    totusi, am si eu o intrebare: cum au facut astia de au gasit-o??? nu umblu pe net de ieri, dar nu-mi vine in minte decat o singura modalitate: au un bot ca Google si fiecare poza a lor are un watermark embedded care e gasit cand analizeaza fiecare imagine (peste o anumita dimensiune, cred) de pe fiecare site analizat.. nu?! oare, la cate resurse cere cjestia asta, or iesi pe plus din licente?

    PS eram gata sa-ti zic sa pui o poza facuta de tine..
