Its a matter of time before the labor are walking around the Boulevard glowing green with the after effects of the scanner.

Just like the Weetabix commercial on TV.

Well, as long as they aren't actually turning green it's not a problem. Otherwise we wouldn't wanna see them when they're angry.

Even insignificant images to the general public, like the ones fury is interest in.

Sorry..
Imre, Gerald, 234,

Guys, in your opinion do you think it's sufficient to simply watermark pics to protect them or do you also need to copyright each and every pic? Sounds like that would be exceptionally time-consuming. How do you guys do it?

Thanks!

Steve

I will now represent OTR,

He now has claimed copyright to this image. I nearly had a dubai website closed down this week for pinching images, so much so they now approve them individually.

But honestly, this is a good photo location. Can we all come round and steal your view.

visual waterrmmark is good for batch images, no hassel, can batch everything in one operation.

Gerald has won comps for his photos, international publications use imre, I do it as a thing as I moderate the UAE section.

but I got feed up with the agencies in Dubai nicking imges from ssc. This has now stopped due to legal challenges.

Legally copyright is when you press click of the shutter, watermarks are secondary line of copyright.

If anyone wants to use an Image from Imre, Email him.

I think we should have a donate section just for his efforts.

Yes it is, there are such clusters around BK. Part of Old Town complex.

it would have been nice if they filled the spaces between the towers with trees. Just sand is not beautiful to look at.
