Questions About Facebook/Airliners.net

Mon Aug 06, 2012 12:17 am

I have a few questions regarding the new method of displaying our photos on Facebook. I hope this thread remains available and active so that everyone involved may ask the questions and get the answers they need.

I can appreciate what Paul and the others have done in attempting to further distance the Facebook influence from the Top 5 of the Last 24 hours. Adding images directly to Facebook eliminates the need for direct linking to this site and doesn't add a 'view' to an image that has yet to make it to the Top 5.

But, if memory serves me right, airliners.net at one time (and for a short time) implemented a Terms of Service agreement with its photographers similar to that of Facebook . There was an uprising/revolt, and the TOS was dropped for a much friendlier agreement that didn't put the photographers rights in the toilet. Now that images are added to Facebook and displayed within Facebook, are those images subject to Facebook TOS?

This is the first of several questions I have regarding this change.

Thanks for starting this thread! I've been curious too.

Now my question is that wouldn't uploading pictures directly to Facebook be violating A.net's TOS? According to A.net's TOS section 4B: "This limited license only allows Airliners to use your User Photos on or through the Service." Isn't uploading pictures directly to Facebook violating the TOS? Or would A.net's Facebook page be considered "through the service"?

Either way, it doesn't really matter to me. I'm just curious.

Well, it does matter to me and I can not approve of the fact that photos are being uploaded to an external site and the photographer doesn't even know! We all know how easily photos can be misused on facebook and we have been fighting it! Now a.net is doing the same...

Cheers,

Whoa, I didn't even know A.net had started doing that. Last time I was on the Facebook page, the links still went to the photos on A.net (clearly, I don't go on Facebook very much   ).

Very interesting, and a valid question. Have to admit, I'm surprised the crew didn't start a thread notifying us about it.

If I were a photographer, it would matter to me too, for the same reasons the OP mentioned above. If people can view the photo on FB, they're less likely to click the link to your photograph to generate additional views, whereas if only the thumbnail and the link are posted, then they're more likely to click on the link to access a larger version of the photo, thus generating additional views for the photographer.

It would be great to get an official line on this matter.

Good question. Depends how you interpret this last bit from para 4B (passage in bold):

Quote:
Also, this limited license does not permit Airliners.net to distribute your User Photos in any way other than on and through the Service, but does permit Airliners.net to make your User Photos available for viral distribution such as by providing HTML code for aviation enthusiasts to embed the “photo of the day” on other websites and allowing Airliners.net to share User Photos with members of the Airliners.net community through, for example, email and newsletters.


One thing's for sure: it's best to watermark your photos in case they end up on the a.net Facebook page.

While I am glad for the extra exposure that photos get from being linked to from the A.net Facebook page, or a link from their twitter feed, I do have concerns about photos being uploaded to the A.net Facebook page and falling under the Facebook TOS.

What size are photos uploaded to the A.net Facebook page at?

If a photo is watermarked, does the watermark carry over to the Facebook page?

I am not a Facebook member, so where does this leave me with regards to exercising rights I hold over my images that may be uploaded to the A.net Facebook page and fall under the Facebook TOS.

If you hear an answer before one is posted here, please share.

I haven't heard about the recent changes, but am quite concerned. I never post pictures to Facebook, because I don't agree with their TOS in regards to images. For a.net to potentially post them there without my consent is quite troubling.

At least a.net needs to provide an "opt-out" (or preferably "opt-in") policy, where you can flag if an uploaded image can be re-posted.

It depends on if the A.net crew remembers to grab the watermarked version (which might involve logging out of their A.net account first). I, personally, don't have a problem with them uploading my watermarked photos to FB, but I DO have a problem with uploading the un-watermarked versions to FB. The first batch of photos posted were un-watermarked, but after bringing it up with the crew, it's been addressed, so I'm happy. My main concern was that watermarks are a pretty decent theft deterrent, and leaving it off for the general public makes it that much easier for photos to get stolen/misused.

Not sure about this whole FB thing and not convinced I am that comfortable with the redistribution of images.

This may not be the forum for this but it does mention photos.----

Quoting Airliners.net home page:
Join us on Facebook for the latest aviation photos, news and information.

This puzzles me, I thought Airliners.net is where one came for those things yet the home page suggests you go elsewhere.

Don't the Facebook TOS mention not uploading images without permission? I'll admit to not being up on legalese and haven't combed through either Anet or Facebooks TOS, but surely Anet is in theory distributing these images without permission, in which case they would subsequently be against the Facebook TOS by doing so?

Hi Ryan, sorry for the delay but I wanted the correct answer and that is yes.

I see that as a HUGE problem. According to the Facebook's TOS:

Quoting Facebook's TOS:

For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (IP content), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook (IP License).

However, looking at a.net's TOS, I can't find the section where I grant a.net the right to a "transferable" license, which would be needed in order to pass the license along to Facebook (and under their TOS). All I can find is:

Quoting A.net's TOS:
When you post User Photos to the Service, you hereby grant Airliners.net a limited, revocable, perpetual (subject to your right of revocation), worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license to use, transmit, distribute, publicly perform and display (including in each case by means of a digital audio and video transmission), and advertise around the User Photos. This limited license only allows Airliners to use your User Photos on or through the Service.

I strongly believe that "license to use, transmit, distibiute, [...]" does not include the right to transfer the license I grant to a.net to another service (i.e. Facebook).

I am not a lawyer, but I would advice the a.net team to quickly re-evaluate this policy. At best, I see users asking for their photos to be pulled. At worst, I could see the potential of content owners taking legal steps against a.net breaking their license agreement.

That's the key part right there. Links to A.net on Facebook were fine. Actually uploading the photos to Facebook is no longer using the photos "on or through the Service".

And no, they most definitely cannot transfer the license to another party.

Paul, we have two potentially huge problems here. First is the question of whether this violates Airliners.net's own Terms of Use, sounds like this violates Facebook's Terms of Service as well.

Two of my photos are on the A.net facebook wall from the last week of features and one is without a watermark (I definitely watermarked it). That isn't good, and I'd like that to be pulled, even though I liked many of the comments on it and I was happy that so many people could enjoy it. I didn't realize that it didn't have a watermark until I looked at it just now.

I'm happy for the share, I'm happy my photos can be enjoyed by so many. One of the reasons I do this is that I think people get some enjoyment from these photos and that's important to me. But I'm also not comfortable with it being up there without any watermark.

In my opinion, I would recommend immediately returning to the old method of linking, rather than putting up the photos wholesale.

Hi, as Cary noted a mistake was made about the watermarks and I apologise for that, your photo has been removed.

Social media constantly evolves and it has great for expanding the reach of the main site and increasing the profiles of our contributing photographers. We're going to continue to build upon that but to do so we need to change a little.

You may not have noticed but we now post far less per day, only 2 to 4 shots. That is right down on what we were, that said, I am listening.

We'll post the links like the past to ensure proper attribution to the photographer. Same for twitter which we intend to use more frequently than Facebook but the twitter posts will be the same style they have always been.

Quoting planespot (Reply 10):

As you can see some photographers don't have a problem, maybe due to them already using Facebook or having the image on their account already. Others have contacted me and said they're happy for their photos to be used and we'll use their shots with full link and name for attribution to them as permission has been granted.

That should be the right balance to address those concerned whilst enabling us to continue to build the business.

Thanks Paul. I hate to be confrontational, but why wasn't there a post by the crew about this change in the first place? You used to do that pretty regularly it seemed...

With regard to photos hosted on FB versus here, leaving aside the Terms of Service, I have four other reasons for wanting my photos linked to here:

1.) It allows me to better track photo views. I like to see which of my photos are more popular, and I hardly ever log into Facebook.

2.) I hate to say this, but the photo thumbnails in FB's Timeline setup look really stupid. They're forced-square or whatever it's called, meaning all the photos are cut off.

3.) I'd MUCH rather folks see the full-size photo, as I edited it, rather than FB's compressed, resized version. None of the photos look as good.

4.) How the heck would I even know one of my photos was posted on FB? The only way I know now is if I see the photo views on A.net jump significantly.

We have no control over how they display either the thumbnail (or picture) as it all changed when they moved to their new format. However, by sharing the link as we have always done a Facebook fan must click it to see the full image on the main site.

That sounds good, thank you. For my photos, if I had to choose between influencing the top 24 or displaying anything more than a thumbnail on Facebook, I would choose influencing the 24.

It looks like Vik asked most of the questions I had in my queue. However, there is one more. Of the images that were uploaded to Facebook and displayed through that site, most had a link back to airliners.net in the description while several did not. Even the most recent photo, the Etihad Airbus, didn't contain a link back to the site. Was there a reason for that?

Quoting PanAm_DC10 (Reply 22):

Which leads me to ask... Which site, airliners.net or Facebook, are we trying to build? I would really like to know if this site is secondary to that of Facebook.

Paul,

At the moment there is an option for a photo to be included in the photo sales when uploading. Given your statements above, a similar option should be included within the upload area, along with a detailed explanation of what granting permission for A.net to upload a photo to Facebook means for the photographer with regards to the Facebook TOS.

Will A.net assume that photographers give permission to upload to FB, or assume that they do not?

Um, right now I believe they have to assume photographers do not give permission. If they want to get photographers' permission, the idea of including a check box is a good idea.

That's logical, yes, but clearly they already had been assuming we DO give permission, so.....

Which leads me to ask... Which site, airliners.net or Facebook, are we trying to build? I would really like to know if this site is secondary to that of Facebook.

Exactly. I can see that a presence on Facebook is desirable, to attract people to Airliners.net. I fail to understand, and am wary of, anything beyond that.

I thought Airliners.net is where one came for those things yet the home page suggests you go elsewhere.


Sorry Paul,

I don't see anyone responding to this point.

The Anet home page encourages visitors to go to the Anet FB page which is a very second rate user experience compared to Anet yet there is nothing on that page that might entice FB users to discover the many resources and wide range of content and photos available at Anet.

If it is the intention of Anet management and Demand Media to turn the site(and the IP of the members) into nothing more than a "click generator" (and hence revenue) for FB, that intention should be firmly stated and the community allowed to decide if that is how they want to continue.

If this is the intention I fear there will be many who may not wish their IP(images) be allowed to remain on the site.

Looking forward to hearing how the future of this site is being managed.

Regards

Chris
If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

The main site will always be the priority.

Thanks for the suggestion Mark though at the moment we only need to use a few and we'll ask the photographer beforehand, we still will be posting with the shared link as we have always done the majority of the time.
