Default Photobucket Is Holding People's Photos For "Ransom"

Quote:
The company is now charging a $400 fee to hot-link images ó which will break photos on tons of old websites and blogs.

Late last month, Photobucket changed its policy so that if you want to host your photos there and post them to another website ó your eBay seller page, or perhaps your blog or website ó itís going to cost you $400. People are pissed, saying itís tantamount to holding their photos for ransom, a form of extortion.
Read all about it.
