Respecting the copyrights of other posters is not only about basic human decency, it is a matter of the respecting of the legal rights of others. While I observe that there exists a practice on these forums of "quoting" a post containing an image(s) on the same thread as originally posted ...

... the occasional unauthorized publishing of any members DPR Gallery images outside of such a limited case - on the same thread where originally posted, and for specific purposes directly relevant to, and respectful of, the subject of the image(s) original posting by the copyright holder - has always disturbed and troubled me, both in principle as well as in observed practice.

It is my opinion that recognition of, and respect for, the copyrights of other posters is a basic and important element of a community that values it's own members, and in doing so, values integrity.

In one of the threads I made a point about attribution.
Even in the absence of proper (legal) attribution some (any) reference to the origin goes a long way toward good intention.
