    That's a nice painting, Mr. Lumsden.
    I remember to have seen it on the fourth cover of one of yours books.

    Doesn't everyone critsize Hermann Goering for 'capturing art'.

    I find this an interesting modern day problem as people use the internet to freely exchange information and images and yet wish to retain some control of those very images.
    Firstly, if one posts an image on the world wide web it seems ridiculous to me to think that you can retain any further control of that image. That is the very nature of the Internet. The net will surely eradicate the concept of copyright, if it already hasn't done so. The only sure of way of avoiding other uses of an image is not to post it in the first place.
    Robin merely licensed a copy of the painting for his publication. It is available elsewhere on the web and whilst I could never condone the copying of internet images and selling them as original prints, as happens rather too frequently, I find it hard to condemn someone else selling a print for profit. I hope Robin made also made money on his books.
    Bob also brings up a very valid point; who owns that image? Certainly not Robin as he has freely admitted. Does the US Military have a legal right to retain that picture. Probably not. Hoffmann's family successfully sued the US Government to have his photographic archive returned.
    This issue will be an interesting one to follow as the Internet gathers even greater momentum in the coming years.

    I must agree with you that it is now impossible to police the use of images on the internet. Other than copyrighted trademarks and patented products, there is little chance of any enforcement. Of course, it has been rumored that unsavory business practices, in China, regularly ignore patents and copyrights.

    I have seen images posted on discussion forums used for fake offerings on ebay, as well as original images used on the fakers' websites as product samples. It is sad, but there is very little that can be done.

    If a watermark is used, you can be sure there is a program to remove the watermark and digitalize the area to hide the old mark.

    Put just something on top when you take the actual photo, it is not a big deal for someone who knows to remove the water marks these days.

    I didn't know that, D.

    I've removed it from here, as it can be found elsewhere.
