Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report
In recent years, I have acquired, at due expense, some very historically significant photo negatives of the Southern Ocean County area, especially LBI.
I essentially have two options. I can exert my rights under intellectual property laws and squirrel them away, fearing they’ll be exploited if I put them into the public sector, or, I can risk it by allowing tons of folks to enjoy them on Facebook and my website.
To me, the first option is ridiculously exclusionary, having kept many amazing photos at bay for decades. The second is obviously suited to my thinking: having one and all see them.
So, enjoy the images (more coming in the near future) but please don’t market or sell them. Thanks much. Jay Mann.
