Zapped Pictures

If you put your pics on the net its obvious that they will get downloaded for personal use.
When they get downloaded and used for commercial gain without permission then :evil:

Might try it however in this case they never asked me, so I did not have that option

Back in 2011 I was helping out with Heli flips at the Bethlehem Airshow, on a break I walked past someone reading the local daily paper and thought that I recognised the cover shot.

The person with the paper very kindly gave it to me and when I got home that evening I went through my archives, it was definitely one of mine, taken at the Volksrust airshow in 2010.

The only place it was made public was in the 2011 Smoke On...Go! in which I was credited as the photographer.

These buggers must have scanned and cropped it out of there, I tried a few times to make contact with the Newspaper but never got anywhere with it... :evil:

Also had one or two local operators take images off my personal Vleisbook account which were then used on their websites... :roll:

Long story short, since back then, all privacy setting are set to max and I only post images publicly that I don't really care about enough to stress if they're being exploited. [-(

Very frustrating and irritating!

Aren't photos that are in the public domain like Avcom fair game ? Don't you lose ownership once you post them here ?

For private use - but not for commercial use, IIRC.

Not to my knowledge. They are still your shots. By uploading to AvCom you are implicitly granting AvCom a non-exclusive right to display your photos, but AvCom does not own your photos and neither does anyone else who views them.

Copyright does not need to be indicated by a notice or banner, by SA law, it is automatic, as soon as you've pressed the shutter. A non-profit would not be allowed to use Bruce's photos without permission either, unless he explicitly attaches a creative commons licence to them, or provides them with permission.

Bruce, what they did was illegal and I am fairly sure you can take them to court for it. If any of my pictures were used without permission, I would not only lawyer up, but also file DMCA claims against the offenders' websites.
