Stop Stealing My Images

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:55 pm by pretear

This message is, of course, not targeted to my loyal readers. But in the past week, I’ve had my images used on ebay twice. In response to these recent events I’ve put up a Licensing Agreement that governs the content of the Polish Addict as well as a page for my Contact Information.

And to my loyal readers, you guys have been really great about alerting me to content and image theft. I want to give you guys my sincerest thanks for that. Please continue keep an eye out for me. I really appreciate the effort on my behalf.

(Apparently the other blog’s use of my image without my permission was accidental and a misunderstanding. I should have found out all the facts before getting so angry and aggressive towards another blogger. I apologize. Everything is all worked out now and I want to thank Vania of Comme il Faut for being so considerate of my wishes and linking back to me. And again, other bloggers have permission to use my work as long as I get credited for it via a link.)

    I’m so freakin’ steamed about this… That’s downright despicable. Makes me sick that they even went so far as to REMOVE YOUR WATERMARK!!! They think that if they crop out the watermark that the picture is automatically theirs?! Scum, just total scum.

    She still has it up. I’m pretty sure she’s just going to ignore my requests.

    Oh, I hate pic-stealing! Once I had a Swedish auction seller ask me about permission to use my pics. Even though I declined, she would still use them in auctions! Grrr… I hope that Brazilian blogger gets boycotted!

    Ugh! I’ve had pretty good luck with having people remove my pictures from auctions because Ebay has an express policy against it. This is the first time I’ve seen a blogger do it. If she doesn’t link to me or get it down by tonight I’m going to write her again this time in my really rusty Portuguese.
