Well, it finally happened. The day has come when I found one of my own images, posted on Flickr to share with other creative souls, stolen and displayed without credit on a spammer site. If you search for “Cricut birthday card” on Google Images, it turns up on the first page.
They stole all the articles, they stole all the images, and it’s a huge front for a spammer with Google ads. Not that it matters, but I did leave the site a nice “comment” since there is absolutely nothing else that can be done.
I guess it’s time to restrict access to my images. My Flickr account will now be available only to those who are “friends” of mine on the site. If you’d like access to my images, send me an email.
