Next time before you post pics on the net or send them to anyone make sure you write your name across the image, IMO its next to impossible to prevent people from stealing pics and posting it on their websites nd this move might ensure that atleast indirectly you get credit for the pics you take. All the pics taken by V12 and Gordon have team-bhp written across them. Maybe you should have a look at some of their pictures.

I think one of the legal experts on the forum can write a short notice for you which you can send to the webmaster of the website threatening legal action against them for unauthorised use of the pictures. That usually works wonders in most situations.

Can one of the legal experts here help Tushky please?

Just request the webmaster or moderator to include your name, List the link from where the photos were first published.

Darn! That sucks! See if you can contact them and give them a piece of your mind. They have to give you credit and acknowledgement for using your photos.

Watermark your images next time around. Watermarks cannot be removed easily without messing up the picture.
