Meish dot org » Future of Web Copyright?

This reminds me a little of after I attended the Carson Workshops Flickr workshop in 2005. We’d all been given evaluation forms to fill out at the end of the day. Fair enough. Except they then used a quote from my form, credited to me, as promotion on their website (along with quotes from other attendees).

They took it down when I complained, but it seemed very cheeky to use something written down at the event, with no indication it would be seen by anyone else, as marketing copy.

To be honest I think I’d also be a bit annoyed if I appeared in one of the photos on the page I linked to, even though I think CW took the photos themselves. I’m used to appearing in friend’s Flickr feeds etc, but there’s something about appearing unwittingly in promotional material that feels dirty.

Commenting is turned off on this blog.
