Default Exif...

Ask the thief to produce the exif file.

If the image is stolen from TrekEarth he won’t be able to do so as the exif file is stripped from the image upon upload to TE.

Good luck!

Default Copyright...

Hi Subir
They ask to send donations at the name ISKCON... also known as the Hare Krishna movement... Contact the Mayapur website in question and tell them what you want... be it money, removal (or both if you can!) as they are based in India...
Good luck too!

Unless you made a mistake when you uploaded the image to TE the date you took it states 14/01/2008. That means there is no way he had the copyright for 4 years as the photo didn't exist then. If you have the original image you can threaten him with legal action and make demands as Laurent suggests.
Good luck
Kath

Hi Didi
You got no result because there is some added text on the picture, in the website in question....

The response you got over the phone (being lied to) is just more evidence that they have stolen your image willfully .... with intent to misuse and with full knowledge that what they are doing was not doing is legal ... the answer to your question is no you cannot "give away" your copyright .. and in the US anyway the amount of damages you can collect centers around whether the violation was "accidental" or "willful" (in which case punitive damages far beyond the actual value can be awarded) .. rattle your saber ..

Exclamation copyrights

Hello Te friends,
One protective move on pictures posted on TE is to depict a name or signature of photographer in the Bottom-left or right of picture ( like I do lately ). As for the case presented above , it is up to the ligal system in his country , with a good lawyer to take this case.However , if the picture was posted elsewere than TE I would not know how a copy can be followed and protected.

I am septic because it's simple to remove the signature.

Inhttp://www.photofolia.net/gallery.php It's impossible to copy a picture with the mouse right click

I am a bit surprised why everyone forgets about such a simple thing as "Print Screen" option?? the best and easiest for saving photos!

Besides, there is browser's cache! you can retrieve anything from the cache folder after viewing the page..

have a nice day!
