Dear All, I am planning to create a blog that could showcase my artwork (drawings and illustrations) as a new business. Eventually, I intend to morph and upgrade it to a website. It is worrisome that the images may just be used and downloaded without my knowledge, hence without payment. How do I protect copyright and my interests in this matter? Would it be wiser to upload them to sites like Associated Content and similar sites that pay less? At Associated Content they will pay $1.50, per 1000 page views the image receives. Is this a reasonable price? How long does 1000 page views take to reach? Of course there is a different price when the image is eventually sold. Still, it will be a lot less than putting a price on an image and displaying it on my own website, but at least no one will be able to download it without paying for it. To say the least, you get the protection. Many Thanks.
