Back to the topic of the photo rights ...

The indignation of the alleged photog, Amanda Byrd, seems somewhat misplaced. If I were shooting professionally, and felt some proprietary interest in my copyright, I sure as heck wouldn't be uploading my pics to anyone else's computer. I'm not condoning stealing, but given the difficulty of establishing ownership of digital assets after the fact, there ought to be some burden upon the shooter to exercise minimal care (i.e. don't leave the car running at the curb).
