    This makes me very furious.. For so long on flickr i have wanted people to post pictures of awards saying good job.. This person got many posted on his photo.. oh wait, its not his.. read this letter i had to send out to all the people who posted on "his" photo.

    -----

    You posted a comment on a person's photo that was stolen.. This photo is mine. please take off your comment on this photo posted at the link below

    http://flickr.com/photos/hikerboy45/2086567934/?addedcomment=1#preview

    this is my photo.. the original is here..

    http://flickr.com/photos/11229703@N08/2069295347/


    To prove this is my photo you can tell by a few ways

    1. The camera taken.. its settings in more property
    2. The size.. mine is bigger, how can i photoshop all of that to be added on? answer: i cant
    3. Look at the post times.. when i took it.. they are the same on both, mine was posted first..

    Please post your same comment on my photo if possible..

    Thank you,
    Jesse (Unreal Reality2)

    "Re: Stolen photo

    Jesse,

    Thank you for alerting me to this matter. I will not repost my comment on your photo until such time as clear proof to my satisfaction has been made on the ownership of the photo.

    You do present compelling evidence though, and as a result the following was sent to hikerboy45:

    ------------------
    Your photo

    flickr.com/photos/hikerboy45/2086567934/

    has been removed by me from Excellence in Avian Photography (EIAP), and my comment has been removed from the photo.

    I am sorry to have to do this, but I have received an email accusing this photo as being stolen. Until the matter is cleared up sufficiently to my satisfaction, I cannot have EIAP, nor myself, involved in such matters.

    Once it is clear who the owner of this photograph truly is, I will be glad to reinvite and readmit the original photograph.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    "I don't understand why he would do that- he has some very nice shots in his photostream- he has only been a contact of mine for a short time- I will watch more closely and if I see any further problems I will remove him.
    I just deleted my comment from his posting for now
    Your post is much better- his was cropped and not as clear.
    Best regards,
    Barbara"

    Yeah this is a huge problem for most photographers. I know I would hate it if it happened to me. You just have to be vigilant and pray that either the person will take it down when confronted or the website hosting it will do something.

    He writes to me..

    I wish you would have waited to hear my explanation before accusing me of stealing the photo, and messaging people telling them I stole it. For starters, I have enough photos that I don't need to steal yours. Furthermore, the photo wasn't that great, and if I ever felt the need to steal a photo, it certainly wouldn't have been that one!!!

    So now, you are going to contact all those people and explain to them what really happened, since you took it upon yourself to contact them before knowing the truth, which has been explained in my earlier message. Not the 1st one, the second one which explains that I downloaded it to see if it was actually a Hawk and not a Falcon.

    Re: Messages

    Hahaha, dont try to blaim this on me.. Bottom point you..

    a) Downloaded my photo WITHOUT MY PERMISSION
    b) Regardless to your excuses, you uploaded MY photo

    If you do not apologize for trying to accuse ME of something, i will not take the nice action and say its okay, dont let it happen again, but i will report this to flickr.

    For you to insult me, and try to tell me what to do, this makes me EXTREMELY upset. Apologize, or I contact flickr.. I have more then enough evidence to have you dissaplined.

    Aren't the comments made on photos on Flickr mostly ( at least 80%) a joke anyways?
    I get the impression that a lot of people are just looking for a comment but are not really expecting a "serious" comment as such. I have seen comments such as "great photo" on lousy pictures and no comments on the good ones.
    It looks more like a game to me. Some people put their photos on over 40 different pools.

    That depends. If I was loosing money over it, yeah, it would bug me, but my lawyers would love that situation and I would deifnately go at it until I got satisfaction.

    This is flickr... meh, if someone is so desperate for attention that they need to steal stuff and pass it off as theirs... well thats a child's mentality to get pleasure for useless "awards" that have no value in real life. Definately go ahead and fight for what's right... but certainly don't lose any sleep over this. Also, he doesn't even have to apologize to you, all he has to do is remove your photo, and thats it. You cannot bleed a stone.

    I have a saying... "In 20 years, how important will this event be? If it will not be important then... its not important enough to lose any sleep over now."

    I just looked at his profile:
    "I live in the eastern part of Canada, in the province of Quebec..., but also in Montreal, specially in the West Island, which is where I'm located. The beautiful scenery and amazing wildlife
    Dollard-Des-Ormeaux, Canada "

    He lives about 20 minutes away from me... want me to go over to his house and call him out? :lmao: :lol:

    Finally... did you know that you can add your name into the EXIF info as additional copyright info? Just a thought.

    Is he serious? lol. I downloaded it to see if it was really a falcon?

    Then why did he upload it back to flickr after cropping it? lmfao!

    His response gave me a good laugh. People can be so lame... I'd be pissed too. BUT, I'd also take it as a HUGE compliment!
