Yeah, I think he usually backs off while he is gone........if not, he wouldn't have much of a vacation! I do know he is not in a good wifi area most of his time away so that would also limit activity! We're just going to have to keep the forum going here instead!

I have noticed that if I search for truck companies on "Google Images" often photos come up from Hank's & our members .

This is a lot more serious than Hank turning it off while he's on vacation. Looks like the big cause is assholes explicitly stealing content from here and reposting it, even going so far as to cover up watermarks.

This is why we can't have nice things. Idk what the next move is but the future looks grim gents.

Lodge Members -

Some of us with long running concerns about outright abuse of use of myriad
photos, and willful contempt of intellectual property rights. On a practical
level, for the most part only the largest of players (with their own Law
Departments) can and will challenge any unauthorized use. Among smaller
players, resources are simply not there. In HANK'S remarks (see direct
link here previously), it is quite plain about his misgivings.

In agreement with HANK, your writer understands his thinking about so
many sloppy practices which have come with so called social networks.

As a side note I noticed the number of visitors to the Forum today is pretty low. I wonder if they realize you can still get on the Forum by typing in "Hanks Truck Forum" & googling it. In other words the Forum's still rolling along....we'll just have to wait & see what happens to HTP when Hank returns from vacation. Here's hoping for the best. :)

I was emailing with our host today to discuss the situation.
The Forum is still open, as we all see, and Hank is mulling the future of the website over.
I had to go and create a direct link to the Forum and that was Charlie's suggestion.
Thanks Charlie!!

 I glanced through the Canadian Copyright Act last night but it was over 170 pages so I did not read it in full detail.
I can't offer anything more...as I said to Hank it would devastate me personally but the final call is his.

Rob.

I  didn't realize what was going on as I had no problem posting a pic last nite on POTD---then when I went over to FB I saw Hank's post. I don't have any pics on the main site and rarely visit there and I  created a direct link to the forum long ago by simply attaching it to the favorites addresses when while I was on the forum.

Hank did tell me that the Forum is safe for now and I believe a couple of years.

That seems to be the trouble with most regulations and  laws for that matter, by time you sort through all the BS, you've either gone broke, run out time, frustrated enough to say screw it.....and the problems continue!

Hi All,
Sorry to put my main site offline. I've had this on my mind for quite a while recently and I guess after receiving an email from a long time truck photo contributor, when he told me that now there seems to be a simpler way for people to write over the watermarks on the pictures from my site. So that makes it simpler then cropping off the watermark. I won't bore you all with my person feelings right now.

But I realized something after reading Rob Archer's post and someone else who said there is no direct link to Hank's Truck Forum. Well I just created a link to the Forum now.

This entire decision has been really hard to deal with and I feel really bad when I receive emails from a lot of people who have depended on the content on the main site for their well being.

Time will tell if I can come up with a solution. But in the mean time please enjoy Hank's Truck Forum while Hank's Truck Pictures in offline.
