raftwet jewell aka rafee jewell

Recently a contact took this photo, fixed a portion of the skirt, reloaded into their own photo directory and then sent comments to me about it.

I am sure they did not mean to create a problem, but I ended up doing all rafee jewell aka raftwet jewell's avatar's 14,000 pictures and their permissions all over again.

I think asking first is a better way to go. I've had educational, news and other photographers ask me if they can use my pictures. I always say yes as long as they link back and give me photo credit.

The person did a beautiful job and I reloaded the fixed image and gave her credit for the fix... but next time I just want to be asked first.

Intellectual property is just that... property that belongs to the creator or artist.
