Happy New Year!
Where on Earth are you? Share a photo in the comments below! :)

I noticed some confusion lately, so I'm switching back to posting photos in a mixed order, which means more locations and diversity on a weekly basis. (Photo taken in Versailles, France)

Open Letter to Photographers on Google+

Most of you know me for sharing beautiful photographs. I am writing as there is something that’s been on my mind for some time now, the sensitive issue of Copyright Infringement - and I would really appreciate your feedback on this matter. 

Crediting respective photographers is something I take very seriously. That was one of the main reasons I started posting photographs, to try to set some kind of example and standard for sharing images via social media. I am happy with the success I’ve had, since I have a large following of photographers themselves who often send me their work and ask me to share it. I have more than 100K followers on Google+, 50K followers on Twitter, and 25K subscribers on Facebook. Most of my posts go viral. 

I do not use my social media stream to post commercial content, or to sell anything to anyone. I never claim to be a photographer and I always credit the respective photographers and provide the link to their website. 

In my personal experience, photographers are generally happy to have their work exposed to a bigger audience as long as they are properly credited. Unfortunately, the copyright laws on social media are very loosely defined, and the last thing I’d want is to be accused of copyright infringement.

I don't want to waste my time promoting photographers who don't want to be promoted. And more importantly, I don't want to offend anyone with my actions. I understand that an artist bares their soul when publishing to the world, and I also understand that a work of art can only gain value with more exposure. But in the end, there is such a fine line on the internet between promoting work and copyright. It would appear that even crediting all photographers there could always be someone who has a personal problem with how their work is promoted. 

I am hoping to initiate a discussion on this subject as I would really like your opinion on how you perceive the work that I have put into this hobby. Let me know whether you want me to share your photographs or not.
