Whenever you post naked pics of yourself on the internet (or arguably even allow someone to take them of you), you run the risk of them being stolen and distributed on other sites. You may choose to watermark pics, alter or crop them, or black out your face to make them undesirable to people who would steal them. But it's just part of what "might" happen, and people should be aware of the risks involved.

For that reason, if you have explicit pics, keeping them set to "private" on this site is probably a good idea for most women.

As for the fake pics... I think it's up to the individual user to use their own common sense (or run images through www.tineye.com) to figure out how much they want to trust how real they may or may not be. I think some guys want to buy into the fantasy that they are real in the same way that they would call a 976 number and want to believe that they are having phone sex with a hot, horny model. evil4

Neither this site nor its volunteer moderators, verifiers, and mediators should be expected to be internet detectives, striving for justice and authenticity on every photo.

It's not the sort of thing that's worth parsing through if you're trying to run a site with a lot of traffic. It falls under personal responsibility of the users.

If it's personally offensive to you, develop a good sense for fakes- Painter (the guy that replied to you above) is famous for it- and shun accordingly. Some of us are entertained by how clumsily some attempt to 'become' the people in their posted pics. Is it fair to the person whose images were stolen? Of course not, and it's unfortunate, but until that person discovers it and takes the thief to task, file it under "things that are wrong and should not happen, but inevitably do".


Xuani.....I see no problem with you passing the Bar. LOL

You saved me a lot of typing, thanks Xuani.

About the golf course photo. As long as the balls are in play it must be ok. What about the balls falling into the little hole around the green patch? Although maybe playing with the balls while it is in the hole is wrong. I am so confused.Nutbag javascript:insertsmiley('Nutbag%20','/forum/images/emoticons/freak.gif')

I have a problem with the copyright issue as it is represented here. Being an owner of a picture is fine but that does not make the picture copyrighted. In order for said picture to be copyrighted by said owner that owner must file for the copyright and have it accepted. Additionally, you may want to review the free use portion of US Copyright law as it does come into play. Just a thought...

This is an adult site yet how many people use porn stars as their would be identity. Take this a bit further and understand that their relative images are very likely copyrighted and therefore protected. Earlier someone had said the site can't be responsible. I disagree because it is so obvious who the picture is and so likely that actor or actress hasn't the time to be here those pictures/person should be validated to protect the site from liability issues in Copyright Law. Simply claiming ignorance of the law does not hold. Apparently we aren't all adult and so many do not want to be themselves.

This is all good advice however, Lush has a copy block in place which prevents pictures from being stolen in the traditional manner. Now, if you attach a picture to an internal message it goes back to the normal view in that it can be stolen. I enjoy this portion of the site's features but it's back to buyer be ware.

Note to all, there is nothing common about sense and in the case of the internet you can throw reasonable person out the window too.

If you read the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, it covers copyright issues like this. It is up to the person who owns the copyright to pursue legal action, if they desire. Many images are part of the Creative Commons though and aren't copyright protected.

This is the same as when someone steals your story and posts it somewhere else. You file a complaint with Google or the website hosting it - they remove the story. That's the end of it.

That's how it works throughout the internet - on blogs, tumblr, hosted sites, twitter, flickr, instagram, wherever... None of these entities are able to review every pic or story they receive and look for copyright or ownership ahead of time. If the owner is upset at their photos or stories being posted, and they have copyright protection, then they can seek to remove the material and/or press charges although I don't know how successful the latter is in this day and age.

Also re the copy-block issue. People need to be aware of if you post naked/private pics of yourself *anywhere* online, they can be stolen. There are blocks in place on many sites but all you need to know how to do is take a cropped screen shot and presto - the jpeg is on your desktop. People need to exercise reasonable caution and accept some risk when they put things online. Twitpic and Facebook (among others) own the photos you post there and they can be used and redistributed as they see fit. Unfortunately it's just one of the pitfalls of the internet, but most sites are very diligent about removing offending material if a copyright complaint is issued.

Copyright does not need to be applied or accepted - that's how patent law works and it's entirely different to copyright law.

If by "free use" you mean "fair use" it's a very grey area and is meant for review and comment purposes; many jurisdictions - such as the UK - don't recognise "fair use" at all.

The copy block just stops right-clicking - the image is downloaded to your cache as usual
