which is why AW deliberately made it as difficult as it could for copying to be done.

You are joking right?  It is so easy to copy photos and AW even warn girls that they have no way of protecting the photos and not to post any that they don't want to end up in other places on the internet.  AWs photo security is laughable at best.  They dont even try.  disabling right click is not the only way to protect photos however it is the only way they use


As for copyright as long as you are only posting a link to the photo and not embedding the photo on here or any other public forum then there is not an issue.  You cant use the actual photo but you can link to it.

However I fully agree not to show face photos if they are not on open display nor do I agree with facebook photos being put up as they are nothing to do with this job unless it is a work FB profile.  However if you have face photos in your PG they are likely to end up being viewed somewhere online so if you really don't want anyone to put your face photo anywhere don't have it in your private gallery as anyone can pay to see it and copy it and put it where ever they choose.

So let's all make sure they get bitten then, eh?
And let's discourage them from putting up photos in case they get published on here.


I'm sorry, but I don't see the logic in this statement. Why would prostitutes be 'discouraged' if their photographs get posted on a site for punters? I would have thought that the chance for some free publicity would be welcome, especially when the viewers of the photos are a bunch of randy blokes like us.  :unknown:

You simply don`t get it, do you?  She is not SELLING her pics, she is giving him, for a small payment, a limited (in time) licence to INSPECT the pics - no more than that - just as a cinema gives a licence to watch the film, or a football club to watch the match, and AW makes it quite clear that the pics are NOT to be copied or reproduced.  She is certainly not giving him the right to post copies all over the  nternet If you want to reduce it to legal terms it`s a matter of copyright, and to go on and copy the pics and reproduce them elsewhere is simple theft of copyright just as the copying and pirating of films or music is theft of copyright.

Copyright  :lol:

We are talking about AW & prossie's not the next Hollywood blockbuster.
Anyhow if they threaten to sue admin I'm sure west8's legal team will step in & help us out.

I won't be posting pg pictures, not from any feelings of protection of the prossies privacy but because I won't pay to open their bloody galleries.

+1 - at least for the vast majority of them.

You cannot guarantee that the motive for posting a pic would be benign. You can absolutely guarantee that some of the comments would be anything but.

I don't think posting face pics from the PGs is right.  It's too close to outing them.  Just my opinion, so whatever.

At the end of the day if you lot want to go ahead and spoil it for everyone, all that will happen is that hardly any WG will upload face pics in future.  A lot more now are already starting to blur them.

And why should that be an issue? There are threads on UKP about the worst photos on AW as well as the best arses and the best tits. If I think a prostitute is an ugly looking slag I shall say so, and that's not against the rules on this site. The only considerations that relate to benignity or otherwise are those that concern punters getting what they pay for.  :thumbsdown:

No you're the one who doesn't get it. I suggest you re-read before constantly repeating about terms of use and copyright.

I'm probably way of the mark but doesn't selling the picture cancel copyright?

This is very close to complete bollocks. FFS think about it. Whats the difference between having a face pic on AW and having the same fact pic on UKP?  :wacko:

A small minefield there Dani and I believe there has been a court precedent supporting the case to prevent linking or deeplinking.

Embedding (aka hotlinking) doesn't always count as copyright infringement (depending on the source) because no copying is involved. The browser is directed to another URL to fetch the content.
In the same way that embedding a YouTube video (via iframe) is not copyright infringement.

Offline XTC2

It's a pretty clear breach of copyright in fact, "deep-linking" as mentioned in this thread already, particularly as it's being done to avoid a paywall. The chances of any one prozzie suing are probably minimal, but it's up to Admin to decide if that's a risk they really want, and also if they want to set a president that illegal activity of that kind is allowed here.

I've no idea if prozzies would be bothered or not, but I've had some of my work stolen and used elsewhere without my permission. I was not pleased and took appropriate steps, even though it cost me more to do so, as a matter of principal.

Bollocks, she put the pictures in the public domain, the only reason she will be pissed is that people will see the images without her getting additional money for them  :hi:

There's a huge difference to them, and if you want to see face pics in future from non EE WGs or the few that aren't bothered like Dani, that's all that matters.  I punt with a lot of mums.  They tell me if they ever get recognised, they can always say, `well your husband paid a prostitution website to see my photo'. 

Admin can do what he wants but I think the forum should be for the long term benefit of real punters, not wannabees who just want a cheap wank.

And that 'huge difference' is ????????????????

The only difference I can see is that UKP members are a special interest group of regular users of the sex trade, while AW probably has a lot more casual browsers. Your last sentence, by the way, makes no sense at all. Lets say you went to a massage parlour and found that the girl you had booked (without seeing her face) was your neighbours wife? Would you tell her husband? Would she tell your wife? Daft! :crazy:

Really, could you perhaps link a couple of these profiles as I've NEVER heard that comment from a pro$$ie before  :music:

Reality is pro$$ies just want cash and if someone shares a picture of them the only part they get pissed off about is not getting paid again.

True James, and I can't imagine many of them objecting at all if you said you were going to show their photograph to a bunch of randy sods like us. Why would they? :unknown:

If you sub to a girls private gallery and copy pics, don't post them on here out in the open as it may discourage all of them from putting face pics on there profiles altogether. Although I think PMing face pics is fine as it is usually because someone has asked for her specifically showing interest and is not out in the open for anyone to see, specifically the hundreds of lurkers who lack contribution to the site.

I think you are accusing the wrong person of being 12 years old and I suggest you look in the mirror.
It's noticeable that any cogent adult reason for not doing it is met with abuse. The only reasons put forward for doing it amount,in essence, to 'because we can'.
