In Case You Read Icelandic


One of my photos of the most photographed landmark in Reykjavik is being used by the Icelandic Web of Science, with my permission*. I nearly didn’t see the email as it landed in my junk folder yesterday, but I’m glad I found it as I think it’s amusing that an Icelandic educational website based in Reykjavik chose to use a photo taken by a visitor when they have access to the church all the time. What can I say, I caught the Hallgrímskirkja on a good day!

* The trend in image usage currently is too often many companies/individuals DON’T ask for permission, so I make sure I respond to email requests quickly (whether it’s to negotiate a price or grant permission) as I feel it discourages image theft… or encourages proper usage. Whichever way you look at it, copyright is a contentious issue these days.
