The Most Stolen Coin Images on The Internet
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then we should be very flattered.
Two of our images are the most stolen coin images on the internet. They are two of the earliest photographs we took using our second digital camera, and were taken back in late 2001. It took us about a day to fully process them, and since then we have used the originals in various versions, different sizes and differently cropped, Not only do they appear on a number of our commercial websites, but they get stolen by many others. We will add a page later explaining copyright law. Suffice it to say for now that copyright subsists in most original works of art including photographs. In most countries it is illegal to use copyright images without the copyright owners permission.
We list below, with links, the sites on which these images appear legally, and also the sites, without links, which use our images illegally. Publication of their identities here does not constitute acceptance of their breach of our copyright, simply that they have ignored our notice to remove them, and we have not yet got round to suing them for copyright infringement.
Please note that all images on this site are copyright. Please do not use them, copy them, or modify them.
These coins were photographed using our Fuji S1 digital camera, using a Nikon SB29 ringflash, mode manual, aperture 32, shutter 1/90th. The background as for most of our coin images is a sheet of plain white paper. The camera white balance setting were naturally adjusted to this.
