    This person is using your photos to make a profit, so yes, I'd e-mail him and tell him he has 24 hours to get your photo off "his" site. Cease and Desist, blah, blah, blah.

    If it was being used by a non-profit, 501 C-3..I don't think I'd be so upset. I've had non-profit Native Plant groups use my photos..and I don't really care..I just want the photo credit.

    i'd be pissed off. especially if they directly linked. did he? then they'd be stealing your bandwidth and your picture.
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    No he did not direct link.
    He would not be able to. I'm cheap and my site on Geocities is the free account, so remote linking is not allowed.

    Yes you did.

    This is the email I sent him:

    I would have appreciated it if you would have asked for permission before using my pictures of my carnivorous plants. I see the you have used my Ceph (top left), D. filiformis (first), and Drosophyllum lusitanicum (middle). Since you have not asked permission, and are using my pictures for your profit I'm going to ask that my pictures be removed; or another option would be that you donate $15.00 to NASC, stands for the North American Sarracenia Conservancy for the use of my 3 above listed photos.

    I'm trying to get some more money for NASC. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Good job elgecko. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] 15 bucks is a little steep, but those are good photos. As seedjar said I see those everywhere...but probably more times I catch a glimpse of it somewhere in TF than anywhere else.

    Yes of course copying is a form of complement, but then if everyone "complemented" everyone else then there would be no original and total chaos. Thus it is not regarded as such.

    You should definetely give the guy a good one... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
