Howdy All, Dave Fenwick brought to my attention today that the website http://www.worldbulbs.co.uk/ appears to be using pictures from the PBS wiki without permission from the copyright holders (i.e those of us who took the pics <grin>). Not only are they using the pics but they are also carefully doctoring them to remove copyright information (I put a watermark on all of my pics as many of your would know) and I have also heard they are rotating or reversing images to also hide the fact that they have stolen them from elsewhere. There has been a discussion of this happening on the IBSMEMBERS list but I figure that many PBS members are no longer on that list. Pictures have been stolen and modified from the PBS Wiki, the IBS gallery plus numerous commercial sites. To say that what they're doing is illegal is an understatement. Just to reiterate the site is.... http://www.worldbulbs.co.uk/ If you find pictures that you own that have been illegally used there and would like to complain directly then please email via their link within the site or to... mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org I for one am pretty peeved at this as I don't feel that my pictures should be used for others commercial gain. While I freely allow their use for the WIKI etc I am not giving free usage of the pics for others to use as they see fit. There may be circumstances where I would allow my pictures to be used privately with my permission (I have been contacted by people in the past and have allowed usage of some pics), but not for others commercial gain. Some of you may not be bothered by usage of your photos on this site, but I would rather let you all know it is happening. If you are affected and would like to be added to the list of people who are affected then please let me know privately so I can forward your info onto Dave who is pursuing things from within the UK (which is SO much easier than from over here in Australia <big grin>). It is still worthwhile contacting the site privately if you are unhappy about the usage of your photos. Thanks all. I hope no-one minds me posting this here but I think it is important enough to let everyone know as there are a number of us who could be affected. I'd rather be safe than sorry. Cheers.
