    I’m right there with ya, Sarah. It’s not that difficult to attribute something.

    It’s bad on Facebook, but also so completely rampant on Pinterest. I almost never repin, at least not until I’ve verified that there is an actual original link behind that image. I HATE images on Pinterest that lead to nowhere or to a tumblr account of nothing but photos. I don’t want just a photo…what’s the point of that? Like you said, I think that most people who are not original content creators just don’t think about where these images come from. Thanks.

    just file a copyright infringement with Facebook. Don’t bother provoking these people. When FB has enough complaints and they’ve had to remove enough from a page, they will shut it down. They are quick to remove content when you file the report.
    Also, when FB removes the content from their page, it will also disappear from the pages of all the people who shared it.

    It’s really sad when people use other’s work without permission and without a link back. We work hard to make these recipes & photograph them. It only takes a moment to give credit where it is due.

    I’ve seen this a lot lately! I shared your post on Facebook and this guy I know is just not getting the point. Anyone want to come and explain it to him?

    I love these posts that you do that are for the good of everyone! When I emailed a friend about sharing content that was swiped she was shocked. It’s important that people understand a bit more about these things!
