This is an excerpt from the original:

I believe this excerpt is consistent with Fair Use provisions of copyright law, as I will be referring to the image "for purposes such as criticism" in a later blog post.

I'm guessing it says "Not in the butt-- I mean it!"

I don't know -- I didn't take the photo, unfortunately.

Ah, ok. I wasn't sure which photos were yours and which ones weren't.

As a rule of thumb, if it's hosted by flickr, it was taken by me. If it's hosted by craschworks.com, it was taken by someone else. A lot of my "sexy" photos come from the sexy_photo or riotclitshave. I try to give credit if I know who did it, but rarely do the pics come with credits.

Do you understand "copyright" punk?

And.... did you ask Marcus Ranum if you could repost one of his images here??? I don't think so. 'Cuz I'm Marcus Ranum, and I'd remember if you had.

Do you not understand that this is a photo I took and it's my choice where and how it's displayed??? By putting it up here without asking me (the answer is 'no' by the way) you are violating my rights -- as well as being inconsiderate.

Now, take it down before I go note flickr a DMCA notice and have your account shut down, you stupid little floor-sweepings.

Merry Xmas, sh*thead,
mjr.

Re: Do you understand "copyright" punk?

Would you mind clarifying something for me? I believe that my use of your image was consistent with your usage policy:

"Yes - You can use one of my finished artworks as a decorator for your myspace page, or a sticker for your refrigerator, or whatever, as long as you don't edit it and as long as you credit me appropriately. ("Photo by Marcus Ranum" is sufficient) If you just grab my work and don't credit me, you are violating my copyright and I'll make sure that the experience is unrewarding for you."

I initially found your image in a Russian photo collection with no attribution. My friend Oleg pointed out that it was one of your images. So I linked back to the original image, and added a credit for you. In fact, I suspect that you found out that I posted the image because you saw the link from here in your referral logs.

While livejournal is not myspace, I assume that "or whatever" meant that permission applied to similar journaling/social networking sites. Is that a reasonable interpretation?

Given that I:

* didn't edit the image
* linked back to the original
* credited you
* do not make money off my blog or your image
* posted the single image (I didn't decorate my blog with your images en masse)

...if you would be so kind, would you clarify how my use of your image violated your usage policy?

Thanks!

Chris

Oh hey, so that's pretty hot right there. She has a very nice ass. See, I like this way better than chicks + guns. I suppose my aesthetic preferences just lean more to the bladed weapons.

Although: dude, don't be touching your blade!

Agreed.

I also believe that blades are aesthetically more pleasing than guns.
