I decided to look at web stats for my photo sites today.
I found I was getting an awful lot of referrals from a particular site so I looked into it.
This to me is in violation of the usage terms for the photos on my site.
Although I suppose it could be argued by some that it’s not in violation as the image is still on my site.
Anyway, what do I do?
- Remove/rename the image?
- Replace the image with something else (something funny, or even insulting/offensive)
- Contact the poster and ask him/her to give me credit
- Report it as a violation using the "report abuse" link on their site
- Put my site URL on all the photos as text
- Do nothing
I’ll have a think about it and will post more when I decide.
