  1. What am I missing here? Someone took photographs belonging to others and used them without credit, permission or compensation and we are celebrating this? This is exactly the reason why photographers find it so difficult to earn a living because some many people believe that if they find a photo on the Internet it is there to be used for free. Take a look at the Cool Dumper website’s alleged “disclaimer”
    “Cool Dumper admits that though we try to describe accurately, we cannot verify the exact facts of everything posted. Postings may contain Information, facts, speculation or rumor. We find images from the Web that are believed to belong in the public domain. If any facts, stories or photos/images that appear on the site are in violation of copyright law, please email cooldumper@gmail.com and we will remove the offending section as soon as possible.”

    This does not absolve anyone of copyright infringement which is exactly what is going on here.

      You are correct. But you also must realize that your viewpoint is essentially the driving force behind SOPA and if it was enforced the entire Internet would implode? Again, you’re correct. But I mean… good luck with that.

      • Mack Fred says:

        That’s right — it was MO’s viewpoint that drove SOPA. Glad you were able to locate the original demon. Pitchforks and torches, everybody! Let’s get MO before his viewpoint possesses anyone else’s soul. Don’t forget to bring the silver spike!

        Yes, MO MUST realize the error – and we have ways of making you realize, you know.

        Better than than implosion of the whole Internet. I mean, if we start discussing intellectual property today, tomorrow, every word in the English language will be trademarked and we’ll be prohibited from speaking without first paying royalties to copyright holders, who trade the once-free words on Wall Street.

        It’s your choice – refuse to discuss professional courtesy or have your tongue traded like pork-belly futures on Wall Street. Don’t let your tongue be traded like a pork-belly future on Wall Street. Steal someone’s picture and repost it today.

      I don’t disagree with the above statement. However, as a photographer myself, I would like to throw up the other side of the argument.

      The person who put together the above graphic in violation of photographic copyrights would have never paid for use of the photographs had they been given the choice or either paying for the photos or simply not using them.

      Don’t get me wrong, it would be nice to see a few bylines or something to that nature, but in all honesty … Whether or not my name is under a photo isn’t the point. If I am not getting paid for it either way, why wouldn’t I want people to see and find enjoyment as a result of my pictures.

      I’d rather see my photos unattributed online then not see them at all because nobody is willing to pay for them. I’m may not be getting paid, but at least people get to see and appreciate my pictures.

      In the end, being a photographer doesn’t mean you should get paid. Only “good” photographers get paid. And besides, the photos were obviously uploaded to the web by the photographers themselves (or given to someone else by the photographers themselves), or they never would have been found on this web page. If you really don’t want people to use or see your photos without paying for them, don’t show anyone and there won’t be any issues.

        It’s hard to get a job as a photographer not so much because of copyright law but because the market is saturated with kids and the newest digital SLRs and Photoshop. It doesn’t take much to become one anymore. I know one who has virtually no formal training and a crappy digital SLR but is highly creative and can get to places most normal ones don’t. And he still can barely get work. I live in a house full of photgraphy students who are paying tens of thousands of dollars in tuition and equipment per semester at a private institution and guess what – most of them are going to be spending the rest of their careers trying to pay off their school loans, unless they got rich parents. It’s sad

      Copyright lawyer troll: go back to the sewer.

    • JHeck says:

      LOL. Are you seriously upset at this? How long have you been on the internet? A day?

    • Graziano says:

      Please take it easy, it’s just a joke non intended for commercial use!

  2. Samantha says:

    chill dude, welcome to the internet.

  3. Tollilops says:

    First of all, know the specific laws before you go getting your panties in a bunch.

    Secondly, IT WAS A JOKE, FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES. No one is trying to redistribute anything here.

    For my third point, I’ll reinforce what Samantha said previously. WELCOME TO THE INTERNET.

    Lastly, please stop spamming sites meant for entertainment purposes with your obnoxiously negative comments. I hope with everything in me that you have something better to do than put a damper on a funny site. If it bothers you that much, don’t comment on it. DO SOMETHING.

    It is only going to violate fair use if it usurps some market for which there is lost revenue. Mickey, do you care to show me the data on photo meme revenue?

  5. Cindi Leeman says:

    I’m more concerned about the person who didn’t know which movie the “what I think I do” came from. Who didn’t want to be Woodward and Bernstein?

  6. DutchAttorney says:

    Seriously dude? You are bitching about someone using this pics like this? Don’t you know that there has te be damage, in order to claim compensation? Where is the harm in this ?
    You can bitch about IP when someone is being fucked over by multinationals and miss out because of it. Not over something as tiny as this.
    Why don’t you do us all a favour and go Google yourself if you’re bored, sue those sites that’ll come up bearing your data. :-)
