As someone who posts random pics from the net, I do think about if there was some sort of intent for the photos not to get out there.
For example, you may notice that any of the pics that are not mine that my posts don't have any kind of watermark or copyright, name of the subjects or anything else posted on them. I assume that if people intend to not want to have their stuff out there they will indicate so in their pics.
But really I also don't understand the big hubaloo some people put out there regarding protecting their photos but then splash them all over their blogs, profiles and social sites. OK sure there are the rare cases when someone tries to pass your photo off as their own work, which is stupid (we put the work into learning the craft and getting the gear, don't be a dick and take a short cut).
But after that, to get your knickers in a twist because the photo of you handcuffed on a bed gets spread around the internets, and it is out there because you put it out there, seems rather silly to me. If you post up a photo, you are releasing it into the wild, and if you choose to get uppity about it remember that the responsibility ultimately lies with you.
With all that said, I maintain that if someone puts their copy right or water mark in the photo, I assume I won't post it here as something to be hot and bothered about.
You will also notice that I don't copyright or watermark my own stuff. I don't because I am releasing it into the wild. If it gets you off, if you think it is worthy of reposting somewhere, then glory be! I would prefer you to not try to make money off from it, but what the fuck am I going to do.
Been thinking about all this since the other day when I spotted a pic I took of my partner's beautiful ass while he was in his under armour and tied up. Am I going to get raged over the fact I was not cited as the originator, or given credit in some way? Nope.
I take it as a fucking compliment! I am glad someone likes it, and it is fun sometimes to see my stuff roll back around from somewhere else.
Besides, I get to come home to that ass every night. Who the fuck am I to complain.
