I had the mistake of downloading a picture of an orchid from the internet in order to compare the flower in bloom from mine...I posted it here in OB...then a couple of weeks ago I got a reprimand from the alleged owner of the picture who is also a member here telling me that I didnt ask his permission...he had an alias in that site and also a different name here on OB...so how can I even ask permission when I am not a member of that orchid site? Anyways...I deleted the said picture and got another replacement from scanning the bloom from a 1940's orchid book...now anything after 50 yrs loses its copyrights and royalties and it is fairgame...besides I never use any pictures(mine or somebody elses) for commercial purposes. This is a forum for discussion of orchids and we learn from it...not make money out of it; I would acknowledge the owner of the picture if I knew his name

Bud - I guess not everyone in the world is polite as we'd like them to be. As much as this person seemed incensed regarding your use of the image, you were using it well within your rights as defined by "Fair Use" or "Fair Dealings". It was courteous of you to remove the image, but you were in no way legally required to do so.

I've found compliments, profuse apologies, and the compromise of 'would it be alright if I still used your image, but credited to your name and linked your website?' often goes a long way to smoothing things over.

BTW Rosie - your flickr stream of orchid photos are gorgeous.

I rarely come here now but I do get reports... and this will be my only and last post on this thread.

Let me put it in a sensible way:

matt, you are full of it! Some of your interpretations of copyright are far from accurate...and good thing you are not a lawyer.

Bud, you have balls! You copied my photo and you had ball to change it a little, then posted it in a public forum without my permission/used it as your own work...The purpose of your thread is far from "educational purpose". I was going to let it go quietly but you have to come here crying for daddy. Grow up and be an ethical person!

Wow, well, I didn't come here to deal with childish ranting and ignorance, just to help.

So long folks.

Hey Matt (msparling),
Hopefully you don't leave the OB because of one rude member! This is very unusual and most people here (99.9999999%) are very courteous and helpful. Your posts in this thread are very coherent and helpful to this subject. Just my

And I thought Tom was banned? Is there anyway one of the mods can make that happen? Thanks!

Steve, For this message and the warning message you sent, go skew yourself. I was the one who was being attacked and my photos were being used without my permission. msparling registered here after the incident and started to post bunch BS... Don't bother to send me a warning message again...
BTW, I would not care if I am going to be banned from this forum...

I am going to close this thread as this sort of rudeness is not acceptable.

OrchidBoard is a friendly place and we want to keep it that way.
