A friend of mine pointed me to a link on facebook, and I found the following:
|The stolen photo|
As you can see, the page owners STOLE my image from my 5D Mark II first impressions post, and used it to advertise for ... guess what ... a photography course. The astonishing thing for me is that I felt quite furious. I didn't think I'd be bothered that much, especially with a "small fry" page like this one, not that I am an important person or anything, but I did.
Anyway, I posted the comment you see above and sent it in a message, but I got no response. So today I filed an IP infrigment claim through facebook, and will wait and see what happens. I might as well give them a call.
The funny thing is that when I visited, I found that they state at the bottom of the page that "All copyrights are reserved - Graphics Academy 2014". So it seems at least they know of something called copyright ... at least their webpage designer does. I wonder if they teach people how to steal others' work. We'll see how it goes.

Photography is not a spectator sport
