Now I have heard often of people warning against photos being taken from blogs and used by others. Today I happened to discover that five of my photos were taken without my permission. I guess I will have to learn how to use a watermark on my photos after all. I found out they were taken through my own blog of all things too! I had to change my music when the old playlist no longer allowed access to Europe. I switched to MixPod and it works great. It even has a video built in which you can watch from the blog if the music you choose had a video attached. So while playing around seeing which of my songs have video, you can imagine my amazement when I clicked on Little Toy Village and saw many of the photos from my OWN village being used in this video. They are obviously my village and it is unique as it was handmade by my mother and sister. Even the wall rack where the village is set up is visible and that too was handmade by Jos and I.
Now had the person approached me to ask if they could use my photos, I would have probably said yes but I think I should have at least been asked! It is shocking to discover this. Humm...they could pay me in embroidery threads to compensate along with an apology if they are reading this blog. *grins*
You can see this video by clicking on my song list where it says video and then scroll down to the song Little Toy Village.
