Booty: Fighting Back With a Pinup
Second, Triple P has received a complaint from an anonymous party - via Blogger - that I have infringed on someone's copyright. How the infringement occurred and even what specifically, be it a picture, a paragraph or a thought, was infringed on is unknown to me. As I have discovered, Blogger's process completely protects the complainant and puts the onus of proving a negative squarely on the shoulders of the blogger - me. Which is fine given that it is standard procedure. For me personally, however, it is unnerving only because I have never intended to infringe upon anyone's livelihood or intellectual property.
For the record, Triple P operates under a Creative Commons U.S. License as noted on the sidebar. I attribute whenever possible, giving credit for quotes and pictures used in my posts if I know their origin and providing links whenever possible. I do not receive monetary compensation for this work as per the CC guidelines. If credit is not appropriately given, I welcome comments to that effect that will allow me to do so. I understand that the definition of copyright, particularly as it applies to images used on the Internet, is changing. Any line I may have crossed, if that is indeed what happened, was purely unintentional.
At any rate, I have deleted the post and filed the appropriate form with Blogger. What will happen next, I have no notion as, again, the source of the complaint remains unknown to me.
Finally, a Happy Friday gift to you all from Triple P: SS Pin Up by the inimitable Jay Scott Pike (via American Gallery). What better way to kick off the weekend?
