More stolen photos!!! Are these your birds???

  1. Poor Clementine...she's the most-stolen photo chicken I have!

    Someone emailed me tonight and pointed out that someone else was using my photo on their eBay listing (as a bantam GLC).

    I emailed this person and asked them to remove MY photo and I reported it to eBay as copyright/image stealing...so we'll see.

    My ad:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/6-Standard-...524?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2570d0befc

    Other person's ad:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/8-Bantam-Co...&otn=5&po=LVI&ps=63&clkid=8588587696317305002

    You can also see her on Feathersite:

    Or on my website...

    Some of the other photos are suspect...might want to see if it's yours???

    "Oh ma darlin Clementine!"

    Why do people do this? I mean really! If you own the breed, just snap a darn pic, but no! They steal them. Wonder what her birds look like if she has to steal a pic. Or does she own any at all??

    That is exactly the thought that goes through my mind when I see a stolen pic (of anything for sale)!

    I just saw a craigslis ad with a Holderread's pic used. Their's have the HWF copyright mark on the pic, too!
     
  5. I am guessing she doesn't own the birds, or the camera? I'm really not sure?
     
  6. I know!!!
     
  7. Yeah....it's just weird to me.

    That must be annoying :/
     
  9. Yes, it does get to the point of being annoying. I would say this is nearing in on the 10th time this has happened. Most of the instances included my Golden Laced Cochins for some reason--but on occasion, I will photos of my Sebastopols, Sumatras or Sussex. [​IMG]
