This company steals my photos.
It uses photos posted on Flickr that are tagged with a Creative Commons license.
It then adds a link to Foter in the photo credits line — while ignoring specific attribution instructions by the author of the photo.
It does so in direct violation of the Creative Commons license, which states the following condition:
Attribution — You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work).
I, for one, have posted specific attribution instructions — which Foter ignores.
Too, I certainly do not endorse Foter, nor do I want my photos to be used by that company.
I have contacted Foter about this, but the company ignores emails.
Other Flickr users also complain about this company, and I am considering taking legal action against Foter.
