Ancestry’s new rules #general


Shelley Mitchell
 

I have been reading Ancestry’s new Policy starting in about 2 weeks from now. It appears say that Ancestry can appropriate our work product and use our photos any way they want to. Which technically means they can freely use your pictures, for example, in a revenue raising ad.

I may be wrong about that but if I’m reading it correctly, what would someone suggest? My initial reaction was to sync with my FTM and delete my Ancestry tree.

Any recommendations? Thanks in advance.

I've only deleted private photos, and some of those were copied by
others. I'm not going to waste my time chasing after strangers to get
them to remove them, which they probably won't do anyway. Everything
else on my Ancestry tree is public record. Why delete it? It's helped
me find a lot of relatives and even ones I never knew existed. It's
been a blessing.

You could put watermarks all over the images so that they will have to contact you for a clean copy if they want to use them in an ad.

For anyone interested in a simple language interpretation of Ancestry's newest legalese, I would recommend Judy G. Russell's blog The Legal Genealogist.

Judy originally responded to Ancestry's changes in this blog post: "One Big Change at Ancestry"
https://www.legalgenealogist.com/2021/08/04/one-big-change-at-ancestry/

She revised it a couple of days later, based on updated information from Ancestry: "Ancestry Retreats"

Forgive my ignorance: how to you add watermarks to photo images?

I use Photoshop to add watermarks to photos. Using layers and transparency. I assume any photo-editing program and possibly a good word processing program can do it. There are also online services that will do it. https://makewatermark.com/
