Infographic – Should I Post This Image?

Should I Post This Image?

As readers of GeneaBloggers know, I love infographics and I am an advocate for respecting intellectual property and copyright.  Imagine my delight when I stumbled upon an image that combines both!

If you’ve ever wondered whether or not you should post an image then use this flow chart. And remember: not everything found on the Internet is free and yours for the taking!

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.

  1. Hi,
    It is like someone was in my head, reading all my thoughts every time I am not sure about the copyright issues, ownership issues etc. How did you do that??

  2. Great flow diagram Thomas. What it doesn’t really address properly, however, is the attitude that many people have, sadly much mistaken, that if they provide an attribution or credit for the image, it’s fine to post.
