    scroll down about half way. right above the listings, next to the webcam icon, is a link called "foto." Click that, and the 4 pictures that are displayed are mine. I never got contacted or anything, I just noticed yesterday that 2 people linked to my flickr from that site. interestingggggg.

    why would you be pissed? it links straight to my flickr...

    they aren't stolen... what am I going to do, tell the guy to take them off of his site or I'll sue? I thought it was every photographer's dream to have his photos admired.

    Well if you are cool with it... :thumbup:

    ...because he has linked them to your site, and your Flikr is open to the public; technically has he done anything wrong? I mean, I don't know the legalese of it. Has he?

    I don't know either. I mean, I don't feel like he's taking money out of my pocket, which is the only thing that would bother me. Maybe I'll email them and tell them I'll take more pictures if they want to fly me over there.

    Huh...your tags were all that was needed to locate the photos on Flickr. I checked one photo and it was tagged
    " kirchberg
    austria
    skiing
    snow
    mountains"

    Plenty of information for somebody to locate the photos needed.

    It's good you want to get your photos out there, and i definitely respect that, but they are using them in what looks like a commercial venture, so you would be in the clear if you did ask for compensation...at least in the USA I believe.

    Back in 1989 the United States signed a document known as the "Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works" which, as of September 2008, has been signed by 164 countries making copyright pretty much a worldwide deal.

    I didn't even notice they were from Kirchberg - when were you there?

    I snowboard in St. Johan - mainly Alpendorf. I love Austria

    Is this a commercial website where the guy makes money off of? Or just an informational one?

    Its its commercial, he is stealing the images and you should be compensated. If its an information one, in my eyes, its a different story. I've let bloggers use my images without issues, but I would not let commercial ones use them.

    If you are happy with the flickr link being the only credit you get, then its all good. They are your images and its your choice to the level of compensation you get. If it were me, I'd prefer a more obvious mention of who the photographer is, directly on his site. If not, then I would ask for compensation. But thats me. :)

    Either way, congrats on getting them recognized and used, its always a nice pat on the back
