  • Just saw this on twitter. Anybody got any context? This seems pretty poor by instagram.

  • @MajorRage what is the third party was God? He might have a point.



  • @Bones might've been Izzy Folau...😁

    I would assume this is an automated copyright strike. My guess is the photo agency has an algorithm that sends outs strikes when people steal their photos

    They are probably more aggressive at RWC time

    Yeah, just read online that is what it is.

    Brings up an interesting argument. If somebody takes a photo of you, do you have a right to publish it?

    I asked my lawyer wife, not really her area but she said it can depend on the circumstances, but in this instance the photo agency would own the copyright to the photo so SBW cannot post it without their permission.

    She said there’s been cases where celebrities have been taken to court for posting pictures that the paparazzi have taken of them in public.



  • @No-Quarter thanks for clarification.

    That, is royally fucked (IMHO).



  • @MajorRage it takes work to take the photo, so why should anybody else profit from it?

    I’m ok with them protecting their livelihood.

    It’s also interesting the first instinct he had was it must be discrimination. Sad.

    If you use a reposting app then all good though isn't it?

    Instagram has ads in it.

    Sorry I don't understand

    The work to take that photo, is nothing compared to the work SBW went through to get himself in that position. We can agree to disagree on that point.

    My first instinct was that too, which I agree is a failing in myself and many other things on this planet at the present time.



  • @MiketheSnow posting photos taken by someone else on social media is profiting off their work.

    That doesn’t mean the photographers work has no value, or that SBW can post it

    I kind of agree with both of you. Not being able to post a picture of yourself seems absurd, but at the same time being a photographer is a legitimate profession and selling the rights to their photos is their main source of income in today’s digital world, so the law makes sense.

    Yeah, I see your point and I agree with the first part, but not the second.

    That's Instagram's MO though

    What SBW did wrong was screenshot the image and post it as his own.

    If he'd reposted it and credited it then it would have been all good no?

    The photographer has already been paid.

    Just posted as much on his Instagram post. Will see if I get a reply/response.

    SBW is well remunerated for that work.

    are you saying it is sad that SBWs first instinct is discrimination or sad that people in general assume it is discrimination (which I thought it was of some kind) which unfortunately seems pretty normal in the current climate.

    I thought it was poor from SBW to jump to that conclusion when the error was telling him it was a copyright strike
