    Really BAD when your photo's get stolen Ive had to watermark and had to literally pay to copyright quite a few of mine I even stopped for awhile going on forums because one was nicking my pictures without a care can you belive! and quite abit of trouble started over it [​IMG]
    It's a must you take them to task over it because it is theft and sooooo annoying!
  2. So long as no one uses anything of mine for their own gain, without my permission, while taking credit... I don't care really...

    I do try when I borrow a pick to say "here's an example" and not in ANY way say I Took This because taking credit for someone else's work is a pet peeve. These guys, clearly, are just taking whatever pics they find and running with them... not cool.

    I'll do my part to keep this thread active... others may very well recognize a photo... if the get enough emails maybe they'll realize they were caught and will move on... is there a Quebec Computer Crimes thing or anything that maybe this could be report to (by ALL the victims of theft?)... might help but I've not a clue.

    Sometimes the background of the photo can give someone an idea if it is the same barn or property of the owner. When you have too many photos of chickens with different background, different trees, wirings, set ups, something is up! You would know someone is peeling photos off the internet.

    As for me, I don't care who uses my photos but I would take pictures that shows consisentency in the background to the person who is questioning about my birds or someone else's birds but not the same set up.

  7. And all of the stolen photos are still on there...I did email the two people I found who has had their pictures stolen by these people to give them a head's up...but no response from them, either...

    Very comforting to be aware there are still people in this world willing to help/assist others, great that it occurs with more and more frequency here on BYC. [​IMG]
