Be Careful What you Post

The internet is so easy to use these days, with Facebook, Youtube, FlickR, blogs and website ownership all being common place for most web users. But one 18 year-old girl had a bit of a shock when a photo of herself from her own website turned up on the cover of a porn DVD without her permission and the photo was taken when she was just 14.

It's great being able to put work or videos online but the truth is anyone can use that image or steal your work and its very hard to get recompense without taking out an expensive law suit, as this woman found out, whose photos were taken from FlickR without her permission.

We shouldn't fear this sort of thing happening too often but it's something to bear in mind next time you upload that drunken video or photo to Facebook or Youtube.
