Do we need to hide our children?

Newer Older

After discovering stolen pics of their own children posted on a website called Orkut, many flickr members are rightly going F&F, making their children pics only visible by Family & Friends registred contacts.
I don't want to take the same decision for now but I think Google should do something about the problem and flickr should protect us users to keep the community safe and to make us less fearful to show our children.

Here you can read more about what's happening.

    St. Vincent de Paul charity organization here in San Antonio, Texas chose this image to use on an upcoming mailing. As their advertising agency, we would like to ask you permission to use the image, (one time only).

    I didn't know any other way to contact you, so I asked my young daughter, (who loves photography), if I could use her account to contact you. Would appreciate if you would contact me either way ASAP. Email:

    Sincere thanks,

    This is a stuning portrait! What beautiful eyes, and yes it would be nice to know our images were not going to be stolen. Hope they do something to take care of the problem.
