Blogging: Giving Credit Where Due

I try to be very diligent in attributing credit/ownership to any photo or writings to the true source. I have on several occassions posted photos and attributed them to what I believed to be the source to later learn that source had ‘borrowed’ materials and claimed ownership. If I am ever off regard this please let me know.

    I once had a guy crop my had off a photo of a twenty pound steelhead that I had caught and post it all over the steelhead boards claiming it was his fish. I busted him on westfly over it and those other boards by posting my un-cropped version of the photo.

    People claiming your photo as theirs?! Seriously? That’s awfully rude. You link them to this post!
