Downloading Photos from Persona Paper
Ok, y'all. I am very confused. I had never thought about people downloading or copying my photos that I post here until yesterday. Someone said in a comment on one of my post that they would buy a particular print and then another person asked why anyone would buy a photo when they could just copy it from here.
I put at the end of my articles that the photos are my property, but evidently that doesn't matter. People still think it's ok to just download or copy whatever they want. My question to y'all is this:
Is it legal and ok to just copy photos you find online if you don't plan to sell them yourself? I tried to look it up on the Copyright site but couldn't find the information I wanted.
Right now, I'm thinking I won't post any more photos on this site since I know people are copying them. One person told me she did it, even after we talked about this issue. I don't feel like going back and editing every article I have here though so I guess people can just steal away with those photos.
I'm really sad about this.
I'd appreciate any insight on this subject.
