Name Dropping

Searching around some of my older pics to see if any have been used without me knowing. Turns out quite a few of my pics of Shuhei Yoshida, (above) who is president of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. have been published without the sites, magazines or people responsible bothering to let me know they like my images so much they wanted to use them. Could take this as a compliment but could do with some cold hard cash as a show of their appreciation for my work too.

Chasing up monies owed and/or apologies now. .

More stock images of Shuhei Yoshida of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc FOR SALE at my archive here: 🙂

  1. This seems to be happening to all of us far to often.
    It really seems as if even previously trustworthy and ethical publications just don’t care about intellectual property rights or copyright anymore.

    Don’t let the b$%tards get away with it easily, write some rude emails.

    If we don’t complain and get angry with the culprits about this the problem is only going to increase.

    Hope you get your apologies and more importantly your well earned $ (or £ or Y)

    Maybe the Internet will change and require all images to be recorded at a central Copyright Database web server before publishing an image. Are you using http://www.digimarc.com to track your images online and http://tineye.com ?
