Owning Your Own Content

A reminder of why you should be posting your photos to your blog and then pushing them out to Twitter, Facebook, etc. rather than posting them to services like, well, Twitpic.

World Entertainment News Network, a news and photo agency, announced this month that it had become the “exclusive photo agency partner” of Twitpic, a service with over 20 million registered users that allows people to upload images and link to them on Twitter. The deal allows the agency to sell images posted on Twitpic for publication, and to pursue legal action against those who use such images commercially without its permission, according to the agency.
