The above differs from FB in that PBase has more restrictions on what they may do with our photos. It won't stop someone from downloading a photo, but that's another discussion...

For a professional photographer, the author of the blog does not seem to know the difference between rights managed images and exclusivity. He appears to think that all rights managed images cannot be licensed to anyone else which is nonsense. They can be licensed to anyone, anywhere and for a period of time UNLESS they are licensed on an exclusive basis. I tried to post it on his blog but it was treated as "spam"...nuff said.
