By chance.These guys even gave my shark a name: Maxine?
The most irritating issue is that they imply that the picture is taken in an aquarium ( not good for my ego.. ;-)
The photo was taken on a night dive in Scottborough ,R.S.A
No idea where they got it from , was published in a dive magazine
Do any of you have similar experiences , and what did you do?

RSA is known for a bit of latltude in image usage. Had a friend who sent a demo CD with images and the journalist used the images under his own name. In a magazine no less. I forgot how it ended but the magazine was embarassed.

I played cat and mouse with a magazine last year for about two months and the editor actually said he took the picture which was cleary mine. A standard letter with stated copyright laws, attached invoice and an invitation to resolve the matter quickly will get them hoppin'. Good luck, hope this helps
