This is an issue that won’t go away anytime soon.
Bee from Rasa Malaysia has been posting a lot about it lately, mostly because along with the usual bloggers stealing images, media outlets, e-commerce sites, chefs and restaurants have also been stealing her photos to use in promotion of their own food.
The really stupid thing is, in cases where a media outlet or even maybe another blog wants to use a photo, if they ask permission I bet the majority of bloggers would allow one-time usage with little or even no payment.
I have been adding the blog address on all my photos, even though mine aren’t as nice as Bee’s pictures. Now I’m wondering if I should also be adding that © symbol as well, especially for some of my better photos.
