The Stolen Scream: A Story About Noam Galai from FStoppers on Vimeo.

Very interesting story of how some images were repeatedly stolen from Flickr and used in a wide variety of ways over several years. Unfortunately this kind of thing seems all too common in todays world where many people seem to think that everything on the internet is free to take and do whatever they want with it.

About two years after publishing photos of myself screaming on the Flickr, I discovered that my face was ‘for sale’ in several stores around the world, as well as on the Web and spotted it in places like Spain, Iran, Mexico, England and many other places. When I realized that its not a one-time-thing and my face is being used in so many places i decided to start collecting images/videos of all my ‘appearances’.
