...I think that's the expression that applies here.
A reader wrote to me privately with a little story. Seems his stepdaughter saw a workprint he was working on—a picture of her husband and child. Rather than ask for a copy of the print, she snapped a picture of the print with her cellphone and posted it on Instagram!
The world turns.

AaronL: "That's the norm now rather than the exception. As a professional portrait photographer, clients regularly go to my online preview galleries, take a photo of 'their' portrait as displayed on their screen(!) and post that to their Facebook page etc....copyright watermarks and all! Mention copyright and you'll be considered insane. If it's online it's free, that's the new world."
John Rothlisberger: "Over Christmas I spent time with my wife's family, and I took plenty of pictures with my D700. One of my wife's cousins loved one of the photos I took, so she pulled out her Blackberry (which has the most dreadful camera) and took a photo of the LCD screen on the back of the D700! The resulting blurry, crooked, moiré-ish pic was then dutifully posted to Facebook.
"People are definitely not all alike, that's all I have to say about that."
Speed: "What's an Instagram?"
Zlatko: "It's a new thing, but not completely new. I've seen a framed print of a family portrait, probably made in the 1940s, with the photographer's stamp boldly visible, advising it's a proof print that must be returned to the studio within two weeks."
