Nice site, very informative. I like to read this.,it is very helpful in my part for my criminal law studies.
If you upload an image to the Web and the search engine can't show it no one will know your work.
It seems strnage to me that an artisit would take issue with others being able to view her paintings on the internet, particularly when she has posted them herself and know that this acess to these images can not be limited once they have been posted. If google images was selling her paintings to make a profit that would be one thing, but it seems that having her paintings come up as result of a search in google images would be beneficial to her as an artisit. While, I can perhaps see that this artisit may not like the idea that images of her painting are now going to be associated with any advertising that google may do on it's image pages, this is simply the risk that you run when making anything public and searchable information on the internet.
The artist should have been thankful to Google because users, even though they are not actually searching about his/her work, will be able to get acquainted to it. This would help that artist express his emotions and ideas in his/her works.I have elaborated my points in this blog post, J Breaking News: Google Image Search.
