Nothing...if you give attribution. In this thread, historically, the photos, with extremely few exceptions, have been ones the poster has either taken themselves or by a member of their party.

If you post a photo taken by someone else and say nothing, it kind of implies it's your photo, which is sort of sleazy. Even more so if you don't know the person and don't request permission for use.


I put a link there to where the photo came from, it says there all the information you need to know. But, perhaps you are right, if the moderator understands you and I made a mistake the photo should be removed, in which case I apologize. The way I understand it is that if you give a link then you are doing a service to the reason for why there is an article there for people to view it in the first place. I am creating traffic to the site. I did not think I was taking it out of context. Saying it is sleazy when I post the link right under it is kind of stretch in my thinking. I do not have time for this argument today, I will remove the pic and we can discuss it later.

The attribution should not be hidden in a link. That link also suggested it was an interview with Nick and you hinted that it had the answer to which route. None of that makes it easily discernible that the photo is not yours.


OK, your right, i did not think it through as carefully as you. Thanks for pointing it out.

I think you guys are being awfully hard on Donald, although I totally appreciate where Julie's coming from. He does go over the top and for too long, and I don't think it was appropriate to get on this particular soapbox in an accident thread where we don't even know how the injured climber is doing-- this is why I deleted my own post-- but there is truth to much of what he says even if many of us wouldn't take the logic to such an extreme.

About the photo he posted in this thread, I see no issue at all. I assumed the photo wasn't his and that I'd find out where it came from in the link. I don't think any of you would have made such an issue of that photo if it were put up by another poster.

Curmie, what was yours, or maybe re-post it when Rick's is answered?
