I noticed that one of my pictures on Flickr got a lot of hits recently, clicks referred from a blog, www.strictnorms.com. The post is called "55 Impressive Underwater Photos". http://tinyurl.com/csx5ay Nice to have a picture chosen for a post like that, and the picture did link back to Flickr, BUT the picture was posted with my copyright statement rubbed out! I posted a comment stating I was rather upset about that, felt it was a bit outrageous as the photo had, in effect, been altered by the copyright being removed, and asked it be taken down, threatening legal action if it wasn't. The picture has been removed, my comment never made it to the blog page. So, all's well that ends well, I suppose. But I thought I would share, just in case any of you might be in the same position. You will notice there are a few other comments about the fact that no credit has been given to the photographers.
Here, BTW, is the picture that was posted (which is my all time favorite, and taken on the day I got bent....):
