What do you think?

The image below is one of mine I have on my flickr account, now do you reckon it's the same image being used in a report on the Kenyan online Standard?

Now I only do work for the local papers and this hasn't been submitted anywhere. I know it's only a small thumbnail but I have to laugh when I read their 'terms and conditions of use' concerning material on their website.

Re: What do you think?

Do you mean the famous Standard who's banner states Fairness and Justice?

I'd send them an email threatening all kinds of legal retribution, just to see what they say - maybe they'll give you a day's pay (most Kenyans live below the poverty level of $1 a day)

(Sadly, I see why people plaster ugly watermarks across images!)

Re: What do you think?

Yes the 'Fairness and Justice' also made me laugh

I might just drop them an email.

I do now place a watermark across all my images as I've seen older ones of mine used on facebook peoples blogs etc which I've always turned a blind eye too.

I let you know if I receive a reply

What do you think?

Surely it's better this way. You can prove it is your image with the original RAW file. They should pay for it now especially as they have published it without checking.

Re: What do you think?

Just a quick fyi if you go the The Standard's site. I use the Chrome browser and a plugin called WOT (Web Of Trust). Sites are rated by viewers on how dangerous or benign they are, ranging from copyright problems to drive-by infections. On opening their site, I got a big fat red warning.
nb, you can also get WOT for Firefox.

Thanks for the heads up pjiffy. I've now taken the link off just to be on the safe side.

Re: What do you think?

For those that haven't come across it TinEye Reverse Image Search is useful for checking if any of your images are displayed elsewhere on the web.

If yours is absolutely unique then there shouldn't be any doubt but do think about the possibibilities of somebody else having taken a similar shot. I had one of a much photographed lighthouse on the web and another image on a stock agency was identified as being the same. However when I checked their exif data it had been taken 6 months before mine!

Happy New Year!
