Sigh ...

Found another shot of mine being used on the internet without my knowledge. Found out about it when I went "blog-hopping".

Hey, hey, hey, before anybody gets ANGRY again ... am not pointing any finger at anybody, OK?

I admit, it is MY FAULT since I failed to put my watermark on the shots. Guess I was too naive to think that they wouldn't be used without my permission. I've had some shots being used by others, without my watermark (including a magazine which dealt mostly with gardening and stuffs), but they asked my permission before using them. I guess it's common courtesy, or something.

So PLEASE, NO ANGRY retorts or comments, OK? Don't want to pick a fight. Never did. Don't plan to sue anyone, either. lol.

Just want to write about it. This is my blog, after all. The last time I checked. :D

*btw, thanks to those who supported me (you know who you are) ... and were quite vocal about it* :)

I honestly think some people don't intend to steal them, they think that being on the web makes them fair game and don't understand.

I'm sure there are many people who just don't care though and do steal them.

Thanks for the visit and comment on my WW!

On the optimistic side.... hey, your pictures are so good that people are using it as their own! :)

You must be proud. Go easy, there's nothing owners can do. I'm resigned to it too.

patingin naman ng mga yan, kung sino sila...not that I can do anything about it...

Whenever I checked my sitemeter, there are lots of vistors who comes to my site via google images. If you dont want your photo to show in the search pages, you need to remove them in the search listings I think, I forgot exactly how.

Remember, flattery.... =D Have a nice weekend na lang!
