    This is very ridiculous for SPH to do so, even with your Big copyright mark there, they still did take it and print it. Seeing this, I should not make my watermark opacity 20percent already, jsut need to put 100percent to prevent this kind of nonsense.

    Well, if SPH dare to do that kinda stuff, they are already well-prepared for any consequences.

    Moreover, there is no lawful copyright registered by Greensky1. Like shooters in other countries, they sell such copyright services by law firm for your images.

    That's why many people think the internet is a place where you can upload any thing on it. Once it has been 'virtually robbed' then its your tough luck.

    I ever read one article from one of the photography mags for such similar cases in UK:
    This guy shoot and upload his image onto the internet - not sure which website. And he upload it in full resolution...that's it!! One of virtual robbers just download his image and sell it over the internet.
    He tried to contact that robber but to no avail because 1) no copyright register for his image, 2) no watermark, and 3) stupidly he upload in full resolution (for web, 72ppi is suffice).

    However, Greensky1's case is something to learn from. Just be more careful the next time you upload your image anywhere in the internet.

    Greensky1, you still can try to push further with SPH, but unlikely you will get what you rightfully own. However, maybe there might be some miracle and kind soul from SPH to help.

    Hi Greensky and Everyone in this Thread.

    Im not saying whether you can or cannot sue, take legal actions against SPH or whoever that used unauthorised pictures without permission.

    As some of the bros already mentioned that why would they make such a mistake given that they have been in the business for such a long time....

    The key is facebook. Do note that it is stated under the terms and condition of FACEBOOK that any PICTURES posted on facebook belongs to facebook.

    There was one T&C that i have read before that stated clearer but apprently i only found the following.

    For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos ("IP content"), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook ("IP License"). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.

    AHhh....I remembered that and removed all my stock pics from FB. TS, if FB did not give ur rights to SPH, u're still alright based on the clause. note, subject to ur settings on whether the pic is private or public. Otherwise, game over.

    then ask SPH if they have the right to use the pictures and get them to product a written document saying the Facebook has actually granted permission for them to use your picture.

    But it seems that the T&C itself has cleared facebook of all those liability. But i do not think that facebook would expect payment from SPH though.... But then again that my thoughts and contribution to a fellow CSer.This is Not a advice or trying to ask TS to give up the fight...

    ooops, just saw another clause in Facebook:

    4.When you publish content or information using the "everyone" setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people off of Facebook, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e., your name and profile picture).

    thanks

    read this

    In other cases, fair dealings for the purposes of criticism, review or reporting current events would not constitute copyright infringement. In the case of criticism or review and the reporting of current events in a newspaper, magazine or similar periodical, a sufficient acknowledgment of the work is required.
