Here is something to put in your philosophical pipe and smoke: Photosynth The potential issues of privacy, copyright and data persistence this software raises are staggering. Even more reasons to consider establishing an isolated intranet with strict access policies for archives (personal or otherwise) of imagery that are sensitive in one way or another; it doesn't matter if they are digital-born or scans of film or paper. One would hope that enterprising young hackers (not crackers) are, at this moment, devising ways to defeat and regulate how and what this technology can automatically assimilate. Seems the Copyright Commons should address this with a "dynamic linking" metadata tag that implements the shades of given rights into Photosynth's automatic assimilation protocol. Guess the only safe bet is, if you don't want it stolen/snagged/incorporated, don't post it on the Net... Sean, any way to protect the APUG galleries from this technology?
