So I was strolling through my blog list today (something I rarely get to do anymore because of the wedding), when I came across this post by Roni Loren. In the post she admitted that she had been sued over the past few months for using a picture on her blog that was not hers. She followed every step the exact same way I would have--took down the picture when the photographer notified her, etc etc... But apparently that wasn't enough. She had to get lawyers involved and had to pay money...
I don't know about you guys, but that sounds like absolute hell. I can't afford the stress something like that would cause me and my family. Therefore, I have made the painful decision to cease my Man Candy Monday posts. Trust me, this was a difficult decision for me to come to, but I simply don't have the time or patience to check the copyright on each picture I post. That also means I will be making a mass deletion on all of those posts. I will also slowly be going through my other posts to make sure I delete those pictures as well--this will take some time, especially since I'm so busy, but it will be done ASAP.
As Roni says on her post, it seems rare that something like that would happen to me, but it did happen to her. I just can't take that chance.
I'm sorry guys, I know that is a main feature of this blog, but I hope you all understand.
*I don't know why it keeps doing that white background on some parts but I don't have the time or inclination to fix it at the moment, lol*
**I have since realized how much work would be involved in taking all of the pictures down, so I will just leave those up and pray nothing bad comes of it. I won't post any other pictures from this point on unless they are mine, or I have permission.**
