Early on in my blogging 'career', I blogged -- among other things -- content theft after I discovered that some other bloggers had copied verbatem a popular blog entry of mine. Sadly, feel obliged to report that I've discovered that it's happened again -- this time with some photographs I took while out and about in Hong Kong.
Now, I have to admit that in my early days of blogging, I too was a bit uncertain about what constituted public domain, etc., with regards to photos. But never at any time would I take more than one photograph from a single website (other than my friend Brian's who has told me he's okay about my doing so!), never mind single blog entry -- unlike this blogging copycat -- who apart from taking photos of mine and putting up on another blog, also has the temerity to then claim copyright for them!!!
Oh, and by the way, you thief, that's not Sai Kung pier and the photos weren't taken on an Easter Weekend; rather, as my earlier blog entries that you took the photos from indicated, it's Wong Shek Pier and I visited around the turn of 2007/2008. Now that you've been discovered, I dare you to admit your guilt, take down those photos and/or apologize (preferably all three but even two out of three would satisfy me).
And to others: Sad but true, I have to admit that discoveries like this does make me wonder whether it's worthwhile, etc. posting up my photos to share with friends and friendly visitors since I risk being disappointed by some others of our fellow humans while doing so... (Oh, and for those who wondered, I was unable to leave a comment on that blog and there's no e-mail address posted there for one to contact the blogger. Hence my resorting to doing what I'm doing here on this blog entry.) :(
