Could you please explain that a little more.

You say it's worked for you several times. . . Is there something you need to type in on Google when you post a picture to get it to search for other copies or what all is involved in doing that ? ? ?

I keep finding copies of some of the thumbnail pictures from a few of my YouTube videos linked to different websites that have nothing to do with my videos, but I've stumbled across them randomly when looking for other things.

I never heard of a 'reverse image' search or any other way of tracking thing like that . . . Now I'm Curious.

That reverse search works quite well. I've used it a number of times and its amazing what turns up and where. Go to https://www.google.com/imghp and then click on the camera icon in the search box. You can drag and drop a picture from your PC onto the box and that's all thats needed.

This started by a simple ? and after 3 stupid responses the OP logged off. It was this persons to do with what they wanted. They just asked a honest question. I would bet his Grandfather would be real impressed how his Grandchild was treated! Bob

Maybe not - we don't know (the claim that it belongs to the person OR that the Grandfather wanted that person to have it). Too many times people have ignored the wishes of the deceased and because they had the keys/power, did and took whatever they wanted, even if it violated the terms of the will.

Yeah, that becomes a legal issue, but it happens all the time, and usually the one who gets "it" is the one who doesn't care or doesn't need it (unless the executer is honest and makes sure that the will - and the intentions of the deceased, are followed, which is not always the case). Often, maybe even usually (unless the value is so great that it catches the attention of some politician or bureaucrat) the person gets away with it - and only thinks about how much money they can get out of 'it'.

Then too, sometimes people do nasty things in their wills - like being abusive toward a mixed-race or gay grandchild (as examples). But that's a different story (one affecting at least one friend of mine). All sorts of nasty things often come to light after a person dies.

I'm always suspicious of "wanna sell it NOW!", unless there is some indication of personal disaster or dire need (and usually people in that situation are honest about it).

The fact is, this is not as black and white a situation or discussion as people would think. Because of the things I've seen throughout my life, I tend to distrust the claim of ownership. Other people have different experiences. We also don't know how old the person is... and often kids will do stupid things that they regret later - like selling an item they inherited. The reality is, we do NOT know the situation, and just about every viewpoint is valid and worthy of consideration. The person needs to think about what they intend before they do it, and consider the input of others.

When I first read the original post, my first thought was that it was stolen and the person wanted to get the maximum possible out of it. I did consider that it was legitimate, but having battled greed all my life, responded the way I did.

So many haters. What is this hobby (or world) coming too? I have been around the hobby for over 50 years and have always thought this was the greatest hobby with the best people. With a thread like this I'm not so sure.

It's the facts of life that we have to live with today. When you open your eyes and realize what is out there after hearing about what can and does happen, alarm bells go off. The world is no longer the bright fresh daisy that it was 50 years ago, so now we proceed with caution.

That's just sad. We had several new exhibitors at our show at Rollag this year and all said they were impressed with how friendly and helpful we were. I gratefully appreciate the compliment but it concerns me to think that it is so vastly different at other shows. I truly do not think we do anything out of the ordinary. Just more helpful than hurtful.

You are overlooking something. This IS the greatest hobby with the best people. But, when it comes to those who are not in the hobby that want to sell stuff to us, caution is advised. In fact, when $$$$ are involved, caution is advised anyway.
