Piracy...with my work !!!?

I was taken by surprise yesterday when I found my photograph Moods of Lord Ganesh was printed on a front page of a Local magazine – Grahankit : September 2010 Issue. I had a weekly holiday & was on personal assignment for coming Ganesh festival. While moving on the streets I was caught by Lord Ganesh photograph & suddenly I realized it’s mine. I immediately purchased that magazine & searched for the image credits – No wonder it was not there. While going through the publisher’s details I found it’s a local one. I went to the office & taken my action with the editor.

I wanted to share this because just a simple method anyone can get your artwork saved easily ( File – Save web page as ) & it’s done for anyone. Unfortunately RB doesn’t support with our images to prevent such piracy. If you go to 1x, they have better support.

Learning for me :

1. I have decided to put watermark with complete name at the center of image when zoomed.
2. Although, I have a VERY good support on bubble, I realized I am picking up well now with my work :D
