I just wanted to post a copy of this photo minus the distracting large watermark that I feel is required on my Instagram feed, to avoid "reposters" aka thieves! Photo reposting and copyright infringement is rampant on Instagram and other photo sharing social networks like it! I am saddened by the attitude so many people there seem to have concerning this issue, a level of apathy that is truly shocking! It's a little bit ironic seeing the huge uproar that the recent terms of service announcement at Instagram caused! The idea of Instagram selling their pics without their control or payment to them really got them riled up, but the fact that there are apps you can buy that repost your pics ( even though they give you credit) on someone else's Instagram feed even posting them to other places like Facebook, twitter etc... This doesn't bother them at all? These apps don't ask permission from the original photographer prior to reposting and that constitutes copyright infringement! I don't like it! But I am a minority in this case...anyway I advocate all photographers whether professional or amateur to educate yourselves on copyrights, intellectual property rights and photo licensing! There are many great sites online to research this subject! One that I personally recommend is age fotostock .org/blog...another is the American society of media photographers website... Please if you are a photobug you need to know your rights or somebody will take advantage of you!
