Question A Question For Admin

Hello, Aloha!

I posted to a thread that I can no longer find, unless I'm blind, and that is possible

I think the OP was AdamChef or something like that, and he was requesting members food photos and/or recipes for a start up APP that he was putting together.
Anyways, I know I posted a question basically to the Mods and/or Admin folk ... couldn't anyone come along and harvest our photos as well as recipes for their own gain?

Thank you, Mahalo,
k~girl

Good question.


BTW, I've had my recipes show up on other cooking sites with no credit/acknowledgement to me.

Same here MsM!
I use to put a signature on my photos, but not here on DC.

I was thinking of adding a watermark to my recipe photos.

I'm not so sure that when I post a picture that I have taken on "Discuss Cooking" or a similar forum or website, that I'm not transferring whole or limited rights to that picture to DC.

This isn't an issue to me because I don't think I've ever posted a pic here with meaningful monetary value. But some of you may feel differently. When in doubt, "If it is free to you, you are the product," is a bromide worth remembering.

Yes, anyone can do that. There's nothing stopping them. Whenever you put something on the internet, unscrupulous people can take it and pass it off as their own.

Photos you post here are your photos. By posting them here you give DiscussCooking the right to display them BUT you are not giving other sites the right to publish them without your permission. You are also not giving DC the right to sell them for publication elsewhere.

If you find them at other sites, you can initiate a copyright complaint of we could possibly do that for you.
