florida_girlnflorida steals my papilio picture
Selling bulbs on ebay since 2008 and decides to just use my papilio picture without my permission. And this picture is of my John Scheeper's "Papilio Improved" (NOT a Papilio "Butterfly") which I posted here the forum in July 19, 2007. You would think that after all those years of selling Hippeastrum bulbs, she would have grown and bloomed a papilio and took a picture of it's flowers...her own pic to use to sell her bulbs. But no..this was her response to me when I told her that the papilio picture she was using was mine.
"excuse me...then copyright it like you do all of your other pictures... My photos get lifted all the time but I don't make a big deal about it... "
I answered her back and said..."I just told you that this is my picture. Thanks for the apology."
And this is her reply..." It is on google images WITHOUT a watermark or a copyright.. Why do I owe you an apology? I don't even know if it is indeed your property.. What is your point? Do you want remuneration or something for it?"
Tsk! Tsk! Tsk!!!
