The Charley Project’s on TV again

Back when Carlina White got found, some national television show, Good Morning America I think, profiled her and was flashing her various missing child posters across the screen and one of them was Charley’s casefile for her. It was only for like two seconds, and it was closely cropped and didn’t say “The Charley Project” or anything, but someone who watches the show (I hardly ever watch TV myself) recognized it and wrote to me about it. I checked the online video and sure enough, it was my site.

And now it’s happened again. Look at the video, and look at David Blockett‘s page on Charley. They’re using my images, I’m sure of it. No credit, of course, but whatever.

    Come on, Meaghan, it’s not like those pics are your personal private property. You got them from some other missing person site, didn’t you? Just like anybody else who wants to put a pic of a missing person on their site.

      The write ups and research are her works.

      As long as the Charley Project’s name is on the case write ups and she’s done the research then the pictures are hers unless otherwise stated.

      I never claimed the pictures were my personal property. I just think it would be nice if they had said where they got them from.

        And it’s not like it’d take an awful lot to get them to reveal where they come from. At the very least, they should show the URL that says it comes from the Charley Project. BTW, I did NaNoWriMo this year (and succeeded at writing at least 80,000 words!) and I wrote the Charley Project into the plot (about a young woman from 1980 who gets thrown into 2010). Except I made sure to call the website by its proper name, much like I did with Wikipedia, Facebook, and other websites that came up in the story.

    If they would have given The Charley Project credit it could have brought new readers to the site and just maybe somebody would have a clue about one of the missing persons.

    It takes time just to find the picture, crop them, change the lighting and all. The people who hacked the doe network stopped copying mine at my request but still use my research in part to locate the pics I found which is even more ridiculous since now they have their ugly quality pics instead. But still whatever they do they use my work. Guess I can’t expect too much from people with no moral values. This stuff about the Doe Net being stolen never ceases to piss me off. I wish Todd could end behind bars once and for all and get what he deserves.

    Yet I digress lol; I understand that Meaghan would just be happy if her work is recognized as good that it be identified as hers. Doesn’t look like that but in this field only a few ever get praises the rest most often are just treated like robots. So we don’t spit on credit.

    I punched in a question as to Michael Dunahee’s disappearence and I saw these words that a profile had been done on him.It concerned a sighting. It was later discounted can you tell me what it was about? I am curious!
