Nationwide Clean-Up Campaign in Estonia

posted on 4th of may, 2008

On May 2nd, 2008 Internet newsfeeds asked: What do Estonian Tech Millionaires do for Fun? The answer was: They find and digitally map 10,000 tons of garbage. Then they get 40,000 of their closest friends to clean it all up in one single day.
On Saturday, May 3rd all of that came into reality - Estonians joined forces in an effort to clean up the 45,227 km² country from illegally dumped or littered waste. 50,000 volunteers, which is about 3.8% of population of Estonia, gave their hands and gathered thousands of tons of garbage.
Clean-up campaign "Teeme ära!" (Let's Do It!) was led by one of the Skype inventors, Ahti Heinla, and the founder of Microlink and Delfi, Rainer Nõlvak, who used own-created innovative software based on Google Earth,...

Keywords Copying - Is It A Crime?

posted on 27th of may, 2008

I have to start with an observation about complaints what occur occasionally on stock photography sites: "Somebody stoled my keywords - please, stop it!", "How can I prevent others from copying my keywords?", "Keywords copied - is it right?!"
Well, from legal wiewpoint - there's no law about words copyright. "Titles, names, short phrases, and slogans; familiar symbols or designs; mere variations of typographic ornamentation, lettering, or coloring; mere listings of ingredients or contents" are NOT eligible for federal copyright protection, stands on webpage of the U.S. Copyright Office.

Hdanne, Likakoyn, thanks for your comments! Good things is that as time goes buy, keywording gets more and more easier. Keymasters program is a pretty good learning aid too. Good luck with your keywording!

I do not know English enough. And when I select keywords I look similar images. I never copy everything but so I study English that in the future to not address any more to search. Because very difficultly not knowing it is very good English to pick up keywords. Itself I can pick up no more than 8 words. And in general if copy work very good means. In fact great artists are copied much also by them do not take offence. Always it is necessary to think the head. To study at others, instead of to copy.
