    Why is it that most sellers on the net now "copyright" the images of their items for sale and so make it impossible for an idiot like me to post their images for referal? I know i'm stupid but surely it is in everyone's interests to learn and "see"what's on offer!As i have already said,i am a computer muppet so if anyone has any "get arounds" of this copyright garbage please let me know.

    If they are protected you can still borrow the pictures for reference with the windows Snipping Tool ?

    You will need certain versions of Vista or Windows 7 to have the snipping tool. I don't think the basic versions have it.

    That is a really useful tool. The thing I cant get my head around though, why, if Microsoft are so obsessed with copyright theft etc, did they include that in Windows? Crazy.

    I highly doubt that these sites are really 'copyrighting' there images...legally at least. We have gone through the copyright process now twice (2 books) and it isn't the easiest process...it also costs money.

    I am willing to bet that it is just someone slapping a watermark on the image and acting like it is legally protected.

    On many collector forums, members have started to watermark their posted images because the pictures were being used by the unscrupulous to scam other collectors on auction websites. I imagine vendors are experiencing the same phenomenon to some degree or another.
