Something to consider when posting pictures online

Basic story: guy posts picture of friend on Flickr, Virgin Mobile uses said picture with no permission, citing "fair use" policies since it was a publicly available picture on Flickr.

One more reason to be cautious about what you post online, and WHERE.

It is strange to think how open your life is when you post things online. Yikes! I have friends who have started using watermarks on their pictures. Another person recommends loading the pictures in a certain way that they are clear and crisp on a computer screen but not good for printing. I thought those were clever helps!
