WHAT? used your photo without permission? I'm not a good about these legal stuff but I think you should take action, moreover they are a publishing company.

Editorial pics usually go fr 200 onwards...
Let us know the outcome...
It's weird that the newspapers would violate stuffs like this which is part of the usual work

They download the picture from your web site without gain permission?

A*****o! B*****d! Threaten to sue them! Don't settle without getting back something reasonable.

My goodness! They print the picture with your watermark some more! The editor is definitely an idiot.

I had experienced before that newpaper used my photos on a car explosion incident for a report and it was downloaded from my facebook..I don't even know which friend of mine passed the link over...

anyway, since you have the watermark, I really think you should contact Lian He Wan Bao. I think you can find their contacts on the paper itself..1st page... they should at least acknowledge your work as a form of respect. you own the photos if you do not take the photos during any paid assignment.

Get paid! coz ppl are paying for the papers... they shdn't take advantage of pgs like that..

Yes, get them to pay you.
They won't be so kind to you if it was the other way around.

Happened to the cycling group I am in. They asked for an interview, we were happy to give one, but when we had it published on the club website, they sent letter asking for money.:bigeyes:
