# I didn't feel ripped off
I was reasonably pleased - except I hadn't tagged the image.

Eventually, they gave me some tat as a prize.

# They are cunts
It's a bit sad they are too busy being laddish and wanking to fire up gimp and make their own shit.

Could Rob get a "cease & desist" against emap for image swiping as publisher of the original images?

# you really should add
a creative commons license to your profile so it will always cover your FP's and anything else you put in there. They don't seem to want to argue with that shit. I'd suggest holding out for nothing less than an Xbox.


Edit:// I see that's crap advice, you are already knowledgeable enough in that area.

# Best
of luck with this. I've currently got my solicitor being nasty to Hachette after Elle Online rather foolishly decided to start nicking photos from my flickr stream...

# On the bright side...
...I got paid £250 for one of mine by Random House, who asked nicely.

Yes - for once, Rupert Murdoch's one of the good guys. The world's gone mental.
