Default Need I say this??

Need I say this??

ticovski. Shame.

I guess it is catch as catch can on the internet - but if you find a piece of information, MY INFORMATION (which btw was not very hard to find, now was it??) and then post it up here after I said that I did NOT want to publicize it, what does that make you?

I could suggest a few choice words, but that is not possible here...


Needless to say, I do not feel that that action nor the subsequent actions of those who posted links to my site, nor the one who clipped and posted a copywrited image is appropriate nor particularly good form.

In case anyone reading this doesn't fully grasp or understand the above, I purposely had left those pages UP so that those who had a teeny tiny bit of initiative and thought would be able to find it an benefit from it. NOT so that anyone who stumbles across this thread can merely click and take advantage of it.

And, BTW, that's NOT the main unobtainium driver...

As for me, I had the image from a local forum. Plus the Yam type was already disclosed here.

Salas,

Please edit your post and modify it so that it does not have an uploaded copy of my copywrited image? Thanks.

Can you provide me with the link to the "local forum" privately please?
Thanks.

Pdan,

Honor and virtue are attributes that apparently are no longer (if ever) valued.

Pearls before swine?

Most certainly.
Sign up to reach the image itself or see attached pic.

I can't edit it anymore, mods pls take out the driver image I posted above. But how do you copyright an image of a Yamaha driver?

Dear Salas,

I take the picture - it is then my picture.
If I take a picture of my bench and it has a Tektronix scope on it, it is still my picture.
I take a picture of the Empire State Building in NYC, my picture.
I publish the pictures on my website and place a copyright notice on the site. My pictures, my copyright.

I asked you to privately send me a URL to the site that used my image, your "local" forum, not to post it here.

You can email me by clicking on the email button below any of my posts, thanks.

Default Kopy Kat

Bear ... Suggest you become more acquainted with the Fair Use Rights.

Longer boring description on Wiki of course, but this is simplified.

http://www.dynamicwebs.com.au/tutorials/copying.htm#dmr

Scroll down to page bottom, "Copyright".

If I misunderstood something please correct.

Ah, I see the thread has been split off?? Ok.

I think you may be correct, you may be wrong.
Regardless, if you read the Wikipedia (USA) information on the topic, it is not a fully settled topic.

However, I do own the copyright to my work.
That was a copy of my work.
That image had to be found by means other than going through the front door of my site.
Clearly, it was not intended to be generally available - although shy of requiring a password and/or ciphering the page.

I do not feel that it is fair use to copy a complete image and repost it in full res in this sort of situation. Especially since it is not intended for distribution, is not advertising.

Also there was no proper attribution.

I do not have a problem with linking to my images or pages.
That is certainlyl fair use.

Whatever.

I thought that what the first person did by "spilling the beans" was at best impulsive and foolish.

Whatever.

Thanks.

Ashamed, sure, what for?

I just placed totally legal link to YOUR web page. Period.

You have to realize, when you place some information on Net it does not belongs to you anymore, it is public, only if you have copyright or patent.

Anyway, I placed link directly to your site just to keep you from whining about copyright. That is perfectly legal and moraly right!!!

Be true gentleman to the end and put them, please...

Why?

Simple because you were boasting yourself and bragging about how you have and know something special, bla, bla...

Diyaudio.com is about sharing, my friend, in a case you did not noticed, not to promote your Greatness. OK?

What gives you right that you demand for yourself to keep information of some, obsolete yes, but otherwise good product? Maybe someone else is going to be close to some source and if he is having right info about he can use it. That is good, not bad my friend.

Since you did not want to share your knowledge I did it instead. Hope you understand that.

In the first place if you want to take advantage from your knowledge do not come hear and brag about it. Keep yourself quiet and use it.

Yes, I knew that you are going to react. But you know what, I care very little about it. I admire to knowing and humble people like mr.Pass and Lynn Olson but abhor of those who come here, contribute little or nothing and expect to be adored or alike...

Best regards, my friend...

PS
Moderator, who and what gives you right to remove that link? Mr. Bear is having special treatment here? That link was on topic, perfectly suitable for thread and valid. If mr.Bear does not want to show us what he knows than he need to remove that from his site or place pass to limit access! Internet is in public domain.
