The photos ON my computer are either
a.) scans of the family photos I inherited from my mother;
b.) photos that I photographed myself on my camera, i.e. my creation and property.
Ergo, I do not need permission.
I thought you, and other readers, might like to know that copying photos without the photographers' permission is
a.) illegal, otherwise known as copyright infringement;
b.) prohibited by Ancestry's policy;
c.) prohibited by Find A Grave's policy.
What made me a cop was finding MY creations copied illegally, immorally and unethically without my permission onto Ancestry family trees. I have to do my own "policing" because people do not use the common courtesy they were taught as children: Ask before using someone's property.
