    As you can see - someone decided my picture of the week with my chick on the skateboard was too cute not to copy and use at will.

    Im sorry, why wouldnt you be proud of your pic, and let people use it? Do you sell rights or something?

    Not that I am using it or anything, but I would be tickled pink to have a photo of mine be so desireable.....

    Did you copyright it? have you asked the person directly to remove it?

    It is adorable! Well done!

    It's removed Wildsky. I'd be irritated too. The least they could do is ASK you for permission!

    Just my 2 cents worth, maybe you should tell this person to take it off their ad. I can understand why your upset and this person should have asked before doing that just out of courtesy.

    Quote:They didn't ask, so I'm not going to tell - I'll just remove the ad so they can't sell their chicken coop - alls fair in love and war and all.
