I read your passage about not taking these images from you. While I understand that you work hard to restore and scan the images, you technically do not own them yourself, and you certainly are not the only one to own and post from your vintage fashion magazine. Just a thought.
Hi catactress -
I have no issue with images being used my problem is with bloggers not sourcing or reblogging. I chose to put my blog here at tumblr because of the reblog feature. I love the idea of people sharing the things they like here with their followers. As far as who owns what - you’d be surprised at who has intellectual property rights, what is public domain and what is under current copy right. Yes there are others posting from their own vintage collection but it’s a relatively small group of people. I have spent over three years learning and building this collection and not to be rude to any one else but few bring the kind of knowledge and expertise that I bring to mine.
