Quote:our members retain full copyright in all images uploaded to the site, and no one can download an image from us without us knowing about it


Found this in a news letter from a popular image library, does this mean they can tell when someone nicks a photo or am I reading it wrongly?

Not sure exactly what they mean or how they intend to enforce that statement...

Viewing the image requires that it be downloaded.
duh!

Yes, I suppose they can determine the IP address to which the photo has been transfered, but I cannot see how they can determine if it was saved, etc...

Just a scare tactic that keeps the honest people honest. Those that know better disregard such statements anyway. But I guess it adds some amount of a legal foothold (or at least some warm fuzzies) to state that copyright is held.
