Vendors please check this out.
    #407014 - 09/28/01 12:59 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

I was notified by someone recently about a vendor who offered him money to have his link in his signature :smile:

Check out this site, especially if you are sporeworks (look under supplies), sporechicks (look at grow kits), and PF should have some words to all the pictures in the website.

It worries me that this site hasn't made themselves known here at the Shroomery, they obvioulsy visit here and are scouting posters to get their URL put in signatures of posters who post a lot.

I think all vendors should look this over. Let me know what you think.

So whats the site?

And it doesn't surprise me that vendors ask customers to sport ads. The SporeLab has NEVER asked or insisted customers do this but is obvious some do.

It's amazing how desperate some people are. I won't mention any names, they know who they are.

lol, the picture under agar has the Sporeworks picture, and the bottle says 'sporeworks' on it! I'd say that was inapropriate.

well, when i emailed netfirms (the sites webhost) i did not list any vendors here in my TOS violation complaint, but the pics they took off of fungi.com (stamets' site). these are definitely copyrighted. but sporeworks are as well, as they identify them as such (i didnt want to list any vendors here in lodging my complaint against this guy, and stamets is pretty untouchable as far as having "normal" products).

copyright is secured upon creation of the work, not upon registration with the copyright office. you can and should register copyrights in some cases, but not doing so is NOT a bar to the creation of the copyright. there are definite "perks" to registering a copyright with them... it can establish "proof" as to ownership, it is generally required before a court claim can be filed, can increase the awarded amount of a successful law claim in court when filed within a statutory period, etc... if sporeworks says it is copyrighted on their page, (which it is), the images and works within are copyrighted and protected by law from other websites taking them wholesale off the site.

plus, if you looked closely at this site's supplies page, they had a pic of the sporeworks' agar- WITH THE SPOREWORKS LOGO ON IT! so, i think we all know whom the pics were lifted from, and who was using them fraudulently.

there is no need for this to be the start of some bickering, i just wanted you to know that not only what that site was doing was legally wrong, it was also pretty immoral (a greater crime in my book).

What about using Digimarc on your pictures, would that hold up in a court of law?

I had a nice long talk a while back with a copyright attorney. He said once you publish (post)a picture to the net, such as on your business website, or in any other publications such as magazines, that is a legal form of copyright.

I've never researched it specifically for pictures on the internet, but I can compare it to this:

If you write a song, it's copyrighted. Boom. Of course, if nobody's heard it you'd be hard pressed to prove it, but it's there.

Well, if you run a photo that has been digimarc'd in photoshop or any other digimarc detector, it will tell you who originally created or published the picture by looking up your Digimarc ID that you must register for before using it in the first place.
