Please give credit where credit is due. If you find a cemetery or tombstone photo on the internet, and you would like to add it to FindAGrave, please ask that person to donate the photo or get permission to post it yourself. That photo is not yours for the taking. What makes you think you are entitled to it? You have no idea what I had to clear from my path, wade through, or what bugs I had to get bitten by in order to obtain that photo.
I have recently found several of my photos on FindAGrave that I did not post there, nor did I give my permission to the person who did the posting. They were not all posted by the same person, so that means there are several individuals out there that think stealing is OK.
Why did you think the theft was necessary? If you found the photo all by your lonesome through linking or search engines, then chances are others could have found it, too. As much as I love FindAGrave, it is NOT the only place on the internet to find tombstone photos. Not everything is housed there, nor does everything have to be.
As I've already stated, I adore FindAGrave and will not make a stink about this with them or the individuals who committed the crime... at this time. I have made several hundred contributions to the site and will continue to do so.
Unfortunately, you are going to start finding an ugly copyright notice on more and more of my photos. You can thank the thieves for that.
