Default Photo Stolen

Dear all TE members,

Hope you all fine..

I just want to share.. who knows, maybe you have the answer..

Have you ever experienced a case that your photo was stolen and used for commercial purposes? (if it is not for commercial purposes, then I won't say nothing). Frankly, it happened to me many times, but as some cases, before, happened in my country, so, I know the law, and I could contact the company to find a win-win solution.
BUT, If the theft occurred outside your country, is there any regulation or law about this? as I would like to contact this company, who used my photo without any permission.

It's not always about money, but most about principe.. a good photo does not fall from the sky, it needs a lot of sweats and courages to make it.. so they have to respect the artist and not making money by stealing the photo.. what a shame!

Happy monday and keep on taking good photos!


Cheers,
Yoga

It's extremely difficult to do anything about images being used outside your own country. You could try contacting the site hosting the images and telling them that they are using stolen images but there is little you can do beyond that.

Dear Keitht,

Thank you for your reply..

The photo is not only been used for the website but also for their catalogue printed.
I already had the catalogue with me...

What am going to do if am not succeded to find a solution with them, I will take a photo of the catalogue with the name of the company in it, then will post it in many social network (also trekearth), mentioning about the stolen photo..
So, this way, everybody will know, that this company is making money by stealing my photo..

I think this is the only..

Cheers,
Yoga
