say WHAT??

ok friends and neighbors, what we have here is a screenshot i just grabbed off iStockphoto (as should be pretty visible), where i have never uploaded a single photo for sale.

 

So, what's wrong with this picture?

 

I thought i'd bring this to light as a warning and wake up call to folks. I'm not putting the blame with iStockphoto per se, but still, this is a problem that is becoming increasingly annoying, for everyone that uses the internet to showcase work. I mean for crying out loud, out of 31 images this particular user has on his "porfolio" , 25 of them are mine, and at least 3 are of me..

 

I have contacted a copyright lawyer about this, and will be doing what i can to tackle this problem in the best way possible, (please, nobody start sending any angry letters or anything of that sort, this needs to be dealt with in a level-headed way)

but i wanted to tell people about this as well, because this is always happening, and your photos could be on there illegally as well. You never know.
