    Somebody kindly sent me a heads up that somebody is using a photo of mine without my permission on their website's home page (bottom right in gold frame).
    I looked on their "geese' page and I swear I've seen those other 2 pics before and I bet they aren't theirs as well. Kat? Foleys?
    Sebastopol owners you might want to check it out....

    I've had this happen before and some people have even stolen my text and breed descriptions.
    I had one party ask if they could use my Ameraucana article and I said sure as long as they
    gave me credit...well she used parts of my article and made it her own! [​IMG]
    When I told her thats not what i agreed to she actually argued with me and told me she could do
    what she wanted with my article since I gave her permission to use it.
    ARGH! People can be such *Bleeps*! [​IMG]

    The picture of the goose and goslings is from feathersite and belongs to a Joann Wheeler.

    I found one of your photos there too, or is that Kat's?

    The one in the gold frame is mine.
    I think the one with the pair of geese w/ goslings is from Feathersite
    and the one single goose I think is Foleys or Kats.

    Im so sorry people are stealing your photos! [​IMG] is it someone on BYC? If it is then you should report them to a moderator.

    That picture of the sebbie is very pretty [​IMG] but nobody has the right to steal from you [​IMG] [​IMG]

    They must have changed it up because the gold framed picture either isn't there or I can't find it.
    Either way, that is NOT COOL!

    I don't think the Mods can do anything to another site but if it is a BYC member, maybe they can step in and do some educating...
    P.S. Duckgirl89 - My mother was just saying the other day how she'd like to hatch out some ducklings so we can bond with them and raise them. I told her all about you and your offer [​IMG] She's excited!
