Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am leaving for Stockholm on Wednesday to meet up with a representative from Vyou.com (http://www.vyou.com
) to discuss the possibility to protect the photos displayed on Airliners.net with their "Vyoufirst" technology.
After all the copyright violation issues we've had to deal with lately, I have been searching for a method to protect images on the site without having to wreck the experience for our visitors by including large copyright signs all over the photos or limiting the quality and/or size.
I must admit I did not expect to find any software that would actually work. There's always the "Print screen" button right? Wrong. This software prevents even that use. I am really impressed. You, the photographer, would be able to upload your best work in the highest possible quality without fearing theft and the users can enjoy the photos in all it's splendor and full size.
Please go to their website as linked above and read about the technology. Check out their demo on photo protection (text protecting is not relevant to us) and try save, print etc to see that it actually works.
Ones you've read about the technology, please post a reply to this thread with your thoughts about it and what questions you would like me to ask the Vyou.com representative on Wednesday.
You are welcome to join me at the presentation if you happen to be in Stockholm on Wednesday. Contact me by email for more info.
PS. I have posted a reply further down that contains important information. Please read it!
I would also like to point out that this topic is for the photographers with photos on Airliners.net. Other users will have a chance to comment on the issue in a future thread.
