The Dangers of Online Publishing

One of the biggest fears of photographers at the advent of the web was the ease with which you could “steal” an image. A simple click and it was on someone else’s hard drive.

It’s still an issue – on Tuesday, one Steve Goldstein published an ebook on Amazon titled Boston Bombing – First Photos. And, you guessed it, it was 60 pages of images stolen from various news outlets being sold for $8 online.

Amazon took it down once they were notified, but it’s probably just reignited the desire to never put anything on the web by some troglodytes.
