Thank you Sandra.We host the images on the forum. Have done this for a while. We still have restrictions on size till we finish with other things we working on.
Cheers for that.I had the same with a Facebook group. My understanding is that you own the copyright of the photos regardless of where you post them.
Cheers for that.
I really hope that is the case.
Not that I have a proof of that but heard that, pictures uploaded to facebook, become their property and they have copyrights to them.
Hence my questions if asn.net would do such thing but want to make sure and would appreciate admins input.

I know one member who is also a site sponsor, as he does car gizmo installs and retrofits (everyone knows him, right?), and he take pictures of customers vehicles after work done.I haven’t read the ASN policy in years, but by posting most forums are granted a limited licence so they can host and display the picture you upload (assuming you don’t use a 3rd party host like Flickr) but you retain the copyright.
Facebook automatically strips EXIF/GPS data from images. @Sandra - can that be done when ASN hosting, given the value of what many people are photographing?
I messaged the guy in anger and still am angry about the whole thing but it shouldnt've had happened.
It is like, someone is making money out of you and 1. you are not aware of it, 2. you have nothing out of it.
If he want to list it with my vehicle pictures, please do so but ask me first, meet my t&c's and pay me my part.
After my initial email with threats of court cases and lawsuit, he messages me back to prove to him my ownership of the car by sending V5 snap.
I have politely explained that, this is not a proof of ownership and sent him screenshot of road tax confirmation email. Covered sensitive info but showed my name and reg No.
He have access to my details on eBay so he can compare.
What a b@st@rd !

Facebook/instagram etc if you upload a picture they own the copyright in perpetuity and technically could sue you if you use the picture elsewhere without their permission. I would expect any forum would have similar wording in their policies.
