stolen again

Have you seen this ad? If yes, please do inform me with the location details (if possible with a pic). This advertisement/hoarding has used my image without permission. I found this hoarding at start of Kormangala Ring road (can be seen when driving from Air Port/Indiranagar to Kormangala), Bangalore. Thanks

My original image here

    framoid: thanks Hari Prasad for the support; I went through your blog and appreciate the support.

    @everyone: I have a update on this; I received written reply yesterday from 'The bengaluru pages / azuremedia';

    ".. the creatives for our hoarding were done out of Mumbai with the advertising done by Idea Domain, a Mumbai based advertising agency. Please direct all your queries to Idea Domain regarding the photograph..."

    apparently they purchased my image from Idea Domain advertising agency in Mumbai.

    Mr. Rajendra Mohoni of Idea Domain, had called me some time back in this regard; and said his company was ready to pay for the image; I asked them that I would need them to send me in a written apology and only then I would send them a bill for my image. After this the response from there side has been bad and they have not responded to my phone calls. I have sent them a letter in writing asking them to reply back in 7 days; failing this I would be initiating legal action on them.

    hmmm ya I thought as much that it would be mistake of the ad agency. my friend from Bengaluru just told me that they pay Rs.500 per image printed and they give proper credit too.

    any update on this akshath?

  11. akshath ages ago | reply

    hay Harry; talks with the ad agency has broken down. I am initiating full-fledged legal action against 'The bengaluru pages / azuremedia' for using my image without prior permission.
