So – for a while now I have been dealing with the unauthorized use of a picture I took of Nathan, looking out a window. The legitimate blog, The Big Picture, of Boston.com asked me to include the picture for a childhood cancer awareness post. I agreed but people then stole the picture and someone has even created a meme and attributed a quote and attached a url onto that photo. I see it pop up onto my Facebook feed regularly and it is not a good feeling. It is not regarded somehow as a generic childhood cancer photo for free use. It is not.
Then I received a message on Facebook that pictures from here and Picasaweb and such are being used in someone else’s blog. I have not hear back where that might be. I suspect the person who sent me the message was using a pseudonym. If that person is reading this – I really would appreciate more information. I have since made a bunch of things private and unpublished a bunch of posts here. I hope to make things public again at some point. If I make this blog private I will give you a warning and ability to log in.
If any of you reading this know of other uses of Nathan’s photo – please let me know.
