Why AntWeb images are not free

This is not only a failure of the authors, but of the editors handling these papers (as well as publishers who have a role in copyright). Editors, we need to ask authors where they got an image and make sure credit and permissions are handled appropriately.

I don’t handle systematic papers as an editor, and I don’t recall ever getting an image that looks like it was taken from antweb in a paper that I’ve handled. But whenever an image appears and its provenance/rights are not clear, it’s my job to address this before making a decision to accept the MS.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
