I received a rather alarming notification today regarding stolen photographs, the kind that violates copyrights and can land me in a lot of trouble. After I hyperventilated and had a minor heart attack, I tried to access the said file that would reveal the photos… only to run into a blank page. Alright. That happens. So I emailed the author of said email – and had it bounced right back to me as undeliverable.
Well then…. now I am not sure what to do about it. I use stock imagery or my own photos – but I am well aware that some stock photos that are peddled that way, are in fact, NOT stock and not free to use. I also understand the bounce back – if you are writing an email and are upset, it’s easy to mistype a character. I get it.
So, here is my thought. If YOU are the one that sent that email, write me back. I am more than happy to remove something that shouldn’t be up here if that is the case. I just need to know WHICH ONE.
