IP video lifts my photo

I was informed last night by a blog follower, Cherish Bauer-Reich, that one of my photographs appears, without credit, in an online video about keeping a laboratory notebook. …if you care, the photograph appears at approximately 50 seconds into the clip, and shows my Type A ink experiment. Other photographs are labelled with more information, but not mine!  As Cherish points out, it’s painfully ironic that the video is about protecting your intellectual property.  It was produced by the University of Washington’s Center for Commercialization.  The guy talking is apparently its Director of Intellectual Property Management. Lame.

I know one can manually search for image theft by using tinEye.com (love it!), but I can’t wait until you can subscribe to a service that seeks out all piracy on the internet for your entire online library, and has ability to detect signal in videos, too.
