17/09/2009 – What do you think?

Cheeky sod e-mail of the week award goes to Amos Zeeburg (web editor, discover magazine) who sent me a very polite list of the things I needed to do if I wanted to use the images above;

Hi. It seems you’ve grabbed a bunch of the images from our tattoo
gallery. I’m okay with you using the pictures if you:…

Now fair enough if he was a photographer and had copyright of the photographs – in which case I would never post without a credit – but the issue here is I have never even seen the said site of scientific tattoos before!!! However, it is great and I am sure I will visit it in future. Amos I don’t think you can / should copyright creativity and ideas of clustering images. I have a feeling I found all of these images in much the same way you did when building your online scientific tattoo library. However, as the concept of someone potentially using your gallery as an uncredited source (again something I did not do) rightly troubles you then watermark your images. It is not rocket science although this tattoo below is (source);


What does everyone else think?
