Some one has taken a picture off my website and added text to it, made it into a fridge magnet and is selling it on ebay, never even emailed me to ask permission, is this illegal?

well i think that those images did have a copy right on them didnt they?

from a photographer in WA ? www.bwmedia.com.au ??

if you let him know i think you will find eBay will remove them as a breach of copy right

its just not the done thing not to ask permission

Brian emailed him as well as me and i got a sarcastic reply, all he did was change the pic to someone elses car, i wouldnt have minded if he had asked and sent me a magnet!

Some people are just not worth the spit that lands on the ground (I am trying to be nice).

Maybe someone should buy the guy's scumbag magnet so they can leave some excellent negitive feedback to help his fledging business spiral down the drain. Its a sad day when you have to imprint your logo across every photo you put up on the internet.

That's not right for someone to do that!!!!!

Very nice car by the way..

Hi Demo - how about a plug for your website - I'm sure we'd all like a look.
I've seen that picture before. Isn't it owned by someone in Canada?
