Eddie K. Fellow railfan, public speaker, and host of Eddie's Railfan Page. http://eddiesrailroad.blogspot.com, a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
This is Eddie K, Your host and photographer here at Eddie's Railfan Page.
In case You were not aware of it, Eddie's Railfan Page is a "Free / Non Profit blogsite aimed at My fellow railfans and transportation enthusiasts, or anybody who just happens to like My site for some reason or another.
I do not make any money what so ever on My own photos, or the photos I occasionally use from My Link Pages for historic reference.
Today, I recieved a coment on a post I had did on Thursday, May 12th, 2011 from a concerned and very anonymous railfan, who addressed Me as "Dude"
I had used a photo from My Link page Fallen Flags.Org, of a Penn Central EMD E 7 locomotive that was taken during the 1970's.
I was accused of "Steeling It" from the photographer, and was told to either remove it, or give the photographer's name as a credit to avoid being sued. Out of respect, I did add the photographers name to the posting.
Originally,I did give credit to Fallen Flag.Org for the photo, and didn't think I had done anything wrong at all.
When I post those occasional Link site photos, I do it strictly as a reference material to help My fellow railfans and historians, and to hopefully bring back a happy memory or two.
I realize that some of the photos are copywrited, and I have the deepest respect for the people who had taken them.
Am I doing anything really wrong?
Please drop Me a line here at Eddie's Railfan Page htp://eddiesrailroad.blogspot.com
As I would really like to hear Your view on this matter.
Should I stop using My Link page photos?
