# I had a nice e-mail correspondence with a millionaire last week
after she put my "if you can read this, somebody stole my iPhone" picture on her blog. I wasn't after compensation, but she was happy to give me credit for the image and put on a link to my b3ta profile. [She mis-spelled my name and fucked up the link, but it's the thought that counts.]

But then, that was a photograph of my own hand that I took (therefore I own the copyright). If it's someone else's picture you've fiddled about with, as the vast majority of things on b3ta are, I suspect you probably don't have a leg to stand on. Unfortunately.

# hmm yea that was pretty much my thoughts
i'm obviously not after compensation - I just don't like my image being associated with / used to promote something that i disagree with

# Ach, I guess you can't choose your fans.
I'd say it's probably not worth worrying about. Just take it as a compliment that something you did on here has taken on a life of its own and become popular elsewhere. Even if some of the people who like it are twats.

edit: but then, I generally can't be arsed with the hassle of chasing people. If you can, go for it.

# yea, that pretty much sums up my position
i'll feel all self righteous for about 5 minutes and then forget about it.

# Doesn't matter - that's for the original copyright holder to take up, not them.
Send them an invoice for 2,500 quid, stating that if they continue to display the image, they are agreeing to be bound by your terms of use. They'll take it down fast enough. If not, you have 2,500 quid to build and aggressively market

# You might...
... be able to e-mail them, explaining you created the original on x day, y month etc. and you they didn't ask your permission to use your image, so would they please take it down?
I don't know if you registered your image as copyrighted or if B3ta claims things displayed on their pages come under their copyright as that would give you a lot more clout and you could sue them.
Failing that, make your own blog(s), writing about what a huge bag of dicks they are for not crediting your work.
In the future, I'd watermark or integrate your name/ID into the image at in the bottom corner or something.
What's the blog it's posted on (or address)?

# I tried...
You can't login on the comments and there's no direct comment on twitter, only to send the link to friends. I have, but I'm relatively new on twitter, so I doubt I have many followers. the hubby has a facebook account though, so I'll see if I can do any damage with that and (separately) contact the blog administrator

# Copyright comes into existence the moment the work does.
Unless it was made under contract, the copyright automatically belongs to the creator of the work. Gets murkier if you've used an image without permission, but I hear that might be easier soon as there's talk of allowing people to use images without permission in the case of parody.

# haha i really don't care enough about it to do that
although sending a DCMA takedown to a bunch of UKIP wankers who want us to sever ties with the EU and move into the mid-Atlantic would be nicely ironic...

# I've emailed
the website admin, but it's bounced back and you can't comment on their page as you can't sign up. Fuck it send them the DCMA. We tried being nice - they're just being pricks now.
To think I had a little bit of sympathy with them (stupid, I know).

[challenge entry] but... I can't hear anything!
*clears out ear wax*

I took some pictures of a seal in the Ythan estuary years ago, and made them into a gif. I suppose that counts - and if not, you can pretend it's nodding along to the music.
