"Wonderful new toy"
 
   I've just picked this up from a posting on balletalert: google.com is testing a new system whereby you just type in a name - person, ballet, etc - and it finds images rather than text. Completely addictive!

There are some apparently strange results, like when typing 'Fille mal Gardee' brought up a photo of Mukhamedov in Les Biches, but if you click on it you find it takes you to a whole page of pictures of him, one of which is of Fille.

It will sort out some copyright infringements, though!

   Some of the other search engines have been doing these image searches for a while. I'm surprised it's taken Google so long to catch up.

   Oh. I only ever use google and thought it was a brilliant new invention. I still think it's astonishingly fast!

Not the least of which is Google's! Copyright of images means NO reproduction without permission...so that means the more than 200 images of mine that google has reproduced on its site without my permission, all equal copyright infringement.

It is one thing to create a text link to someone's work, it is another thing entirely to reproduce it on a site. Even if that site is a search engine. And when you click on the thumbnail, it goes to a larger image - but still on Google and not the original site.

At least I didn't find any images of mine this time living on someone else's site that was not a search engine.

I forsee many many problems here.

Oh yes, I especially liked the phrase " these images _may_ be copyrighted."

Well duh! Of course they are. ALL images are copyrighted when they are created - not just when someone sends in the paperwork.
