But also some scary IDEE-HO stuff too:

What's really... I was going to say weird, but I think maybe "scary" is more accurate... What's really weird/scary about the whole thing is the idea that because someone has done some photoshopping and posted a semi-obscene picture of me on the internet, a prospective employer might not hire me.

Whereas, in reality, the thing that would scare away a prospective employer is the off-the-deep end ranting and threatening that I do in response.

Maybe internet forums are like gambling, or booze, or whatever. You can sit down to a card game now and then, and it makes no impact on your life. Some folks can't control the urge to gamble, and it ruins their lives. Ditto with a glass of wine with dinner for one person, and a life in the gutter for another. Maybe there are people who just should not, under any circumstances, ever log on to a public forum.

Locker, remember when I accused you of cursing my climbing trips and threatened to come down to J-Tree and entomb you in glue, then shape you into a giant buttplug and go looking for an elephant to stuff you into?

Why didn't you threaten to beat me up or sic your lawyers on me? What's wrong with you?

Happy birthday dude.

Why does everyone assume that is legal to take other people's pictures and modify them and then republish them?

Isn't that clearly a "derivative work," the right of which to make is reserved exclusively to to the copyright owner? (See 17 U.S.C. Section 106) I know there are lots of artists who post to this site; I'm surprised they don't have a view as to whether their work can be appropriated by others without their permission.

And if the owner of this site is given notice that it is being used as a conduit to further copyright infringement and the owner refuses to prevent that, seems like it's liable for contributory infringement.

RJ should consider registering the copyright of some of his pictures before he posts them here, then post them, sit back and wait for the copyright infringement to occur, and then:
BAM, you're hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit, and he as the right to recover statutory damages and attorneys' fees.

No monitary gain...

No damages of any sort...

No loss of any sort...

Open forum...

Case closed!!!...

Maybe, that's why it would be extremely helpful for the copyright owner to have registered his works before the infringing activity began. That way he can recover statutory damages and, possibly, attorneys' fees.

Nevertheless, I'm not so sure that there is no economic damage. This site contains paid advertising, and based on the responses to the threads, the posts that contain apparently infringing photos are some of the most popular on this site. Therefore, the copyright infringement is being used to draw eyeballs, for profit. Not saying I agree with that, but I see the argument . . .
