Special Guest Speaker – Kiffanie Stahle


About the Program

A visit to Pinterest, Facebook, Tumblr, or a host of other websites reveals hundreds of images displayed without permission from the photographer. From the photographer’s perspective, some of these uses might be okay, but others’ might be detrimental to their business.

During this lecture, we will discuss some of the tools that you can use to find and monitor where your photographs appear online. Once we have the tools in place, we’ll discuss what actions you can, can’t, or maybe shouldn’t take when you find your images used without your permission using a simple flow chart.

By the end, you’ll be armed with the knowledge of how to act when someone uses your photograph without your permission.
