From my experience if a user uploads a copyright file Roadfood.com is not legally liable or required to police it. But if notified by the copyright holder of the violation they should take prudent action. Then if they don’t, they are then subject to whatever follows legally.
I don’t see a lot posted on Roadfood.com that appears to be a copyright violation. Most all photos seem to be user taken and volunteered. There have been some suspect posters in the past and they all seem to have come and gone in a short time. Maybe Roadfood.com had something to do with that. That’s their business and not ours. I do know Roadfood.com has used photos posted here in other publications. Michael Stern took the proper steps to get my permission and release for a photo I had taken used in the Pizza magazine just published.
Many of my photos have gone viral. Even my pork tenderloin tutorial recipe has gone viral and been published in newspaper food sections numerous times. I do track them to the best of my ability and find most times I had been duly credited and been contacted. However, I have found some where the poster had claimed credit. Public call out and embarrassment is my tool of choice. I never post the original digital image online. It is always a medium to low JPEG translation in low resolution. They never look as good as what I have on my computer and at least I can prove I have the original if it ever came to that.
