    • Blogalicious: a photo odyssey
I was surfing and found one of my photos used by a website without permission... the same one manila bulletin got..  this already happened to me a couple of times before.. same old, same old.. and they treat you the same as if its your fault.. 

I found my photos on this site http://paraisophilippines.com, i site that supposedly promoted the philippines...


Here is how is starts..

I send him a comment on his blog,

You are using one of my photos without permission, you didnt even site the source of the photo..
the kalesa photo above… please add a link back to my site and acknowledge me as photographer or take the photo out..

here is what happened to manila bulletin when they stole that same photo..
http://www.photo.net.ph/blogalicious/2007/10/01/major-daily-violates-photographers-copyright-and-intellectual-property/

I emailed him my reply:

Quote
Jerry,

Jerry or  Jude Deguzman whatever your name is.. you used my photo 
without permission and not even citing the source
and is a violation of my basic copyright... I didnt ask you anything 
from you but to site the source or remove my photo..
I have every right to do that because it is my photo.

You have the gall to mock me? wow.. Actually it is people like you 
that dont respect intellectual property

"I just can’t believe that Filipinos like you still exists. While we 
blog and advertise the Philippines for FREE to get across a message
 
and to show how beautiful our country is to the outside world, you cry 
like a baby. Ahh well just another of those leeches in our corrupt 
society. Maybe its good for you if we discuss this in my forum and I 
will be waiting for
 you.
http://www.paraisophilippines.com/forum/showthread.php?p=12258#post12258
."

http://www.paraisophilippines.com/2008/08/11/ilocos-sur/


posted on my blog.

Your full of it. You know that. I wonder how many Pinoys like you na 
mukhang pera. You should be proud that the Philippines get promoted. 
Thats full of *toink* to ask something in return. If you want that your 
pictures not used put a watermark otherwise stop crying like a
 baby.

Problema sa pinoy kaya di umasenso masyado garapal at buwaya. Dont 
*toink* yourself too much. We promote the Philippines without anything in 
return. Its a freaking hobby dahil mahal namin Pilipinas dahil yan ang 
lupang sinilangan.

I just took down the photos that you asked me to and heres what I’ll 
say. You can now go *toink* yourself.If you need a link, banner or 
whatever just let me know I’ll give it to you for
 free.

You were the one that used my photo and yet instead of of apologizing 
you brand me as a leech in a corrupt society and say I am mukhang 
Pera.. tsk tsk.....  hinay -hinay lang...  You dont even see beyond 
yourself and realize what i am fighting for...    I have copied Atty 
Vera in this email, he maybe a better person to explain copyright to 
you.


Anton


And another email from this poor soul

Quote
Whatever dude. You ask me something feeling your some great big hunk that you sued Manila Bulletin. Go *toink* yourself. Grow up. If you really are professional as you claim to be you should protect your works professionally and not just let it sit around floating.

Man your just a cry baby. Pa lawyer lawyer ka pa. What can a Philippine lawyer do when I'm in Cuba or China. Your just full of it.

I am not Manila Bulletin and I dont sell anything. I promote the Philippines FREE for the Filipinos to avail. Dont push your luck too much.


People just dont understand what basic copyright is... and more so respect the rights of the owners.. 

What do you guys think? Check his site to see if you have any photos being used..
Can you imagine He was the one that violated my copyright and he is the one doing the verbal abuse?
This really has to stop...

I still get requests from time to time for images and each time I politely decline.

Ignoring them is also asking for trouble so make sure you politely decline to ensure that the other party knows that you are vigilant at least while thanking them for their interest.

I read the thread in the forum that he asked you to go to. Of course all of them are siding with him. But one of the posters said this

...and i seldom grab photos na obvious ang watermark...

wow. they're making it out to be the fault of the photog if  you don't have a watermark. tsk.

For those wanting to check for copyright infringement of your photos, google Tin Eye. It'll point you to sites that are using your photos.

Anton, I hope your case is going well. We believe in you and what you're fighting for. All the best to you!

this is scary mga sir...i think it's not just about being professional or copyright, walang respect for the amount of effort and resources exhausted to take the picture...and may gall pa sya to say these things...

"Whatever dude. You ask me something feeling your some great big hunk that you sued Manila Bulletin. Go *toink* yourself. Grow up. If you really are professional as you claim to be you should protect your works professionally and not just let it sit around floating.

watermarking your photo right smack at the center is i guess the best option now....

For now that seems to be the logical answer..  but just like to remind everyone.. even if there is no watermark the copyright still protects the image... the problem is education.. with people/jerks like that how do we settle this issue when the victim to them is the aggresor?  ???

What is important now is what will be the next step?

Any suggestions?

wow, i've never seen anyone soooo childish (and even owns a website and forum). How hard can it be to remove a photo or put something like "photo taken from www.putsomethinghere.com" he really had to create uber long post to prove how *toink* if not egoistic he can get

some people just hate it to admit their fault.
put something smart or silly here...

I've just checked out his site; so far, I found one photo of mine:

http://www.paraisophilippines.com/2008/06/10/city-of-manila/#comment-787

I left a message in his comment box.  Let's see what he has to say.

Unbelievable!
