Many of us have experienced, unfortunately, others taking our posts and/or our photos and using them as their own. Obviously that's a copyright violation to be dealt with.
I suspect I have writings or photos out there that people have stolen without me being aware of it.
But someone took my photo, AND I got an attribution for it.
And this gentleman sent me an email to let me know.
Turns out Pete Bayard is appearing at the Tower Bar in San Diego tonight with his band Super Buffet, loved my photo of the Tower Building (it's pretty cool isn't it?), and wanted to promote his appearance on his Facebook page. In his email he let me know this, as well as about the attribution and link to my blog, and that if I wanted it removed he would take care of it.
I was flattered because he liked my photo, and who knows how he got to my blog, but I was pretty darn impressed with what he did. It's pretty rare that someone reaches out about using a photo or a post so this was pretty special.
