Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

The automated process (& negative consequences) of DMCA takedowns is out of control at many sites & hosting companies. I'm all for intellectual property rights (as a content creator I sure am!), but the current process, or lack thereof, is very troublesome.

Sharing this for those who run adult sites ~ not only because Tumblr remains quasi-supportive of mature content, but as a caution regarding copyright & intellectual property rights...

The Escher Girls DMCA Story

The Escher Girls DMCA Story | Readin', 'Ritin', and (Publishing) 'Rithmetic | Scoop.it

So yesterday I found out that Randy Queen (artist of DarkChylde) filed a bunch of DMCA takedown notices to Tumblr to remove posts of his covers on this blog (the entire posts, not just the images)....


...other artists and publishers seem to understand Escher Girls & other similar sites are fair use and criticism, and that fan discussion, positive or negative, is important and helpful to their business. (In fact, the creators I’ve interacted with are either fans of EG, or expressed disagreement but know that it’s fan criticism.)

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

This post covers the beginnings of the story and the updates or ending of the story is here. I post this not as a means of bullying any artist or copyright holder, nor of any blogger, etc., but as a means of understanding intellectual property issues, especially as they are involved in web or self-publishing works.

This great infographic busts all the major myths about copyright. I have to deal with a lot of content scrapers, so this resource will be very useful to educate them on ethical practices.

with the increase in mash-up content, the issues of IP such as this would need our attention and commonsense.

Media&Learning's curator insight, February 28, 2013 3:40 AM

Features, best practices, copyright, use and examples of content curation. Basically everything it is useful to know about content curation. Plenty of useful information.

Mary Dawson's curator insight, June 21, 2013 11:39 AM

I am very aware of the fact that I am using a digital curation site to highlight external resources about images and Copyright and therefore it seems sensible to highlight some of the pitfalls of this approach.  I note that the Scoop.it example does not come out of this too well!

Stealing Is Stealing, Even on Twitter

Stealing Is Stealing, Even on Twitter | Readin', 'Ritin', and (Publishing) 'Rithmetic | Scoop.it
How long until something as ephemeral as Twitter is respected as a protected medium for creation? This may all sound overly dramatic — we're talking about where a fake Guy Fieri menu came from — but the boundaries of ownership do matter.
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

How do people not know that stealing is stealing? It doesn't matter how old or new the method of publication is, folks.

I know a lot of people new to certain areas of sex work, marketing adult sites, etc. who could use this reminder, especially when it comes to photographs and images.
