This is pretty cool.  I'm not as adept with Instagram as I'd like to be but I just posted a thread about a  contest that Blizzard is having on Instagram. 

Gunsmoke Giveaway

You do not have permission to repost my pictures anywhere.

^^^Anyone can repost any non protected photo or video visible to them on the internet pretty easily.  Just right click over it, select "copy image location" and paste it between imbed tags on any other website. Not a lot you can do to stop it or make anonymous posters or web domains remove it after that.

 

Unfortunately, you can't really share any media on the internet and expect it to be protected from replication elsewhere unless you take great precautions to disable the option to copy the image or image location.

 

As for Instagram.  I don't even own a device that will post photos there.

I am aware of that, but some here have downloaded pictures and then re-uploaded them elsewhere.

Actually according to our site TOS if you are the copyright owner of an image posted here on EpicSki (and by extension shared to our official social media pages) and it was put there without your consent or approval there is contact information to file a DMCA takedown request, which we will (and do) comply with. Most sites have a similar provision in regards to DMCA take downs.

Good luck with that paperwork when something goes viral.  If you're concerned about IP on the internet you shouldn't put it ANYWHERE without formatting it in a manner that blocks the ability to copy the image or the url.  Otherwise you'll die a very early age trying to police the entire planet that can post it everywhere else.

Kinda. I would revise that to say if you are concerned about IP then watermark it and/or don't post it on the internet. Even adding a provision that doesn't allow you to copy the URL is very easy to get around by taking a simple screen shot and cropping it.

The only solution is not posting, really. All I ask is not to add to the problem.

And we will respect the wishes of you and any other posters who do not want us to share their images on the Social Pages that form an extension of our site.

Yep. don't put anything out in cyberspace that you wouldn't want to see posted somewhere/everywhere else.  However, if you see/learn someone has profited from hijacking your property that is the time to seek legal and financial remedies. Watermarks do nothing to prevent people from reposting the image.  They are only useful if you want to be able to sue for damages when someone else profits from it.
