Photo Credits

SD Times used one of my photos from the RubyKaigi2007 in an article (on page 8 of this pdf) recently. The piece is about JRuby's Charles Nutter and Thomas Enebo. Very cool. I remember having a conversation with the guys and a PR firm a while back and giving permission, but I forgot about it. Then a friend sent me the link this morning because he thought the image looked familiar. Sure enough. Looks great in the article layout, too. :)

I publish the vast majority of my images under the Creative Commons Attribution - NonCommercial - ShareAlike license, but, sadly, SD Times didn't give me a photo credit. Oh, well. I'll have to be more explicit next time right up front so there is no misunderstanding. But I'm very happy the photo was used, and I have a lot of respect for SD Times.

However, over the last year or so, I've noticed that a few others have taken my images and used them in blogs and such without asking and without giving credit. Actually, you don't have to ask since they are licensed for that purpose, but to rip off someone's work as your own isn't very cool, eh? I'll continue shooting images and contributing them via CC because I believe that the vast majority of people appreciate it and are contributing back to the photo commons as well.
