Who is Alan Merlehan and why are there 1403 HITs up that are still up? Just how broken/hideous are these? How low is the low down?

I post this, not because it's so hot, but because it's all I've been able to do this morning...and it's ART! Not hard--if you find it difficult, well we all have our faults......I found it relaxing, but, it's ART!

Millions of images from Flickr, the photo-sharing site, are now part of a database called MegaFace, which contains the likenesses of almost 700,000 people. Their average age is 16, according to the database’s creators.​
Dozens of companies have used MegaFace to train face-identification algorithms. By law, most Americans in the database don’t need to be asked for their permission, but the situation has led to privacy concerns and, potentially, financial penalties for the companies that have used it.​

ah,
masters.....
I'll answer my own question, as I should have. Previewed. All in frame. 4 companies, 2 links each to check, data to input, 2 decisions. For a buck. They are now being done, but not by me. Seems a bunch of link clicking and such for 15 minutes timer. Here it is displayed for your tedious pleasure. If this is a batch? It's gonna be scammed up 'n back to the wall in an alley.....It does say they may reject for wrong answers, though.

Just exactly what do people think's gonna happen when they post pictures or anything else online? Do they believe they own them? Yes, of course they own them, but it's virtually impossible to enforce that ownership. You own it and anyone can and will steal it. How many avatars are being used without permission? Just because you can pick it up, doesn't mean that it's yours.....remember that when you write for a requester...or any where else....even here. I once was searching for information on an item, and was shown my own ad for the same thing on Craigslist. This was supposed to be ''good'' research information....actually it was, but, still.

taking kids without parents' permission is against the ethic code of photographers. At least now they appear to be adults and don't have to worry about pedi pervs looking for them. Rule I was taught is "may I use your child's picture and here's the permission slip to sign."

On the other hand I took a lot of R photos, we'll just call them that here for sake of argument, when they asked me to do so and posted them on flickr. hope TPTB in the tech world are having fun with those.

Yes, your image is copy writed to you. All your created work is also yours. You own it, unless it's in a public place.(And art created for a public space is also under copy write to the artist, which has caused considerable problems for some public officials who didn't realized they couldn't just destroy it when they wanted.) The entire internet is being delegated to be a public place. It's not. There are still copy write laws governing how your stuff can be used. Notice how companies, and everyone, are getting around this with complicated, obfuscated TOS agreements. You agree to whatever they want when you sign up anywhere. They own you.....I could go into who owns your DNA, but that's a real scary thing, even for Halloween.
