I think we all need to comment and tell them they need to correct the "Photo Credit"

I'd be upset if they stole one of my shots without my permission. I'd give them a few options or pursue my own.

There's at least one more with his watermark in the slideshow. The other two could have cropped them out.

Rather ballsy thing to do in my opinion, but I've seen it happen before.

It looks like the comments worked and then they deleted them. Scagliotti is now given credit for the photo.

If they didn't ask you for the photo and used it anyways it doesn't matter about the credit. Send them a bill, they will pay.

What is the best way to deal with a situation like that? I've had it happen a few times...sometimes they pay, sometimes they end up giving photo credits because "sorry sir we don't have a budget for photos"...blah blah blah

Send them an invoice, you could take it all the way to court, it depends on how much work you want to put into it.

Dude, don't take me to court. I bought you a $7 burger and three beers the other night. I think that's more than fair!!

How much would you charge them? I would have no idea what is fair or reasonable.

'fair or reasonable' went out the window when they decided to steal your image and use it for their own benefit...

"I bought you a $7 burger and three beers the other night." - That sounds like a date and not a payment for services..

A cheap date!

I would be seriously interested in group comments on how much to invoice for. Every photographer that fights this does a service not only to himself but to the community of amateurs and pros. This community has a right to protect their work product. Music industry has RIAA to do it for them. SEND AN INVOICE !!

To those asking how much a stolen photo could be worth...


quote:

In the immediate aftermath of the shooting, Twitter user and social media guru Joe Neale snapped a photo of police cars outside Waterloo train station. He posted it on Twitpic. Sky News editors spotted the photo and used it with their story, crediting it to "Joe on Twitter." Neale says Sky didn't ask permission, and he decided to bill the site 326.24 (about US$538) for use of his picture.


And Sky News is paying up.
