WWW.TELEGRAPH.CO.UK - photos used without my permission

Thurdsay afternoon update: the case has been resolved. The Telegraph apologized for this incident and offered me a fair compensation. The whole situation has been handled by them properly and professionally. I am not going to spend any more time on that, it gives me only a headache. I am glad it has been solved rather quickly.


Flickr people: Thank you for your help and advices. I hope cases like that will not happen to you and if they do you'll know now how to handle them.


Thursday update: it seems that the feature has been removed from their website


I was just informed by some friends that my photos are featured on the website of the Telegraph newspaper, one of the British national papers.


Without my permission again, after being used on some Hungarian website WITHOUT my permission and even without crediting me. I have seen these pictures in so many places after being stolen by that Hungarian website.


and these notes on the telegraph website under photos are something :

"The pictures show young people in St Mary Street fighting, vomiting, urinating and having sex surrounded by other people amid a townscape strewn with rubbish. "


well, I haven't seen or photographed people having sex on St Mary street yet.
