A concerning matter:
I came across a photo on facebook that was very familiar to us all such as this one:
Image

As you all know, this look extremely suspicious as this photo actually belongs to Jan van Wyk!
Image

It is clear that Jan's photo was 'modified' by cutting out the photo and a 'signature' added which seemed to belong to a very suspect individual or site (I tried to track it, but no success).
After consulting with Jan, I have also reported this matter to the appropriate facebook page owner and await response.
How they got this photo is a mystery as Jan does not have a facebook account and the photo Hilda posted as monthly 'Stiffnecks - Bird' winner was a different one to the one posted above. :hmz: Could this be someone visiting this Forum....and..... :rtm: :roll: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

The MOST NB point I want to make is: - we just need to be alert to this matter and if appropriate to adjust the way we 'protect' our property via 'copyright and signatures. For ease of reference please refer this thread: Copyrighting your photo's ©?

This sort of thing makes me very angry to say the least!!!!

Thank you Kaapsedraai for picking this up and pointing us in the right direction as far as copyrighting our photos.

Thank you for the comments :thumbs_up:

Sad indeed.. :big_eyes: ....thank you Kaapsedraai for reporting it but we all know they are professional thiefs :twisted: . One way is definitely to protect our images via copyright and signature but believe me with Photoshop and other programs it is very easy to clone out. For me it is important to upload only view files to ensure nobody can print the images. :thumbs_up:

Luckily for any photo competition the judges also ask the original as proof. :thumbs_up:
