Re: AKA photos
It is OK to link to a page on which photos are shown. In other words, if it
is recognizable as a page from the AKA site, fine. Our policy is not to
grant permission to link directly to the URL of the image.
Most of the photographers don't want their material used on other sites.
There are several reasons for this, one of which is something you mention,
namely exposure. They want to draw attention to the fish and to the AKA.
They don't want people taking their images and putting them on their own
sites, which defeats the purpose. We want the AKA site to have some element
of uniqueness to it, which would be lost if other people use the images on
their sites. Frankly, I would think it would make their sites better too,
if they used their own unique pictures.
If I were to remove the photos from photographers who don't want their
images taken, there wouldn't be much there.
Let's not reopen this debate about copyright. We beat it to death only days
