Did a google search to see what's been stolen lately and daMN! Here are some of the sites, feel free to let rip and check if any of yours are up too. (Stolen meaning taken with no credit given, link or notification and claiming as their own).
Me - The image you have on your front page you have stolen from me. Either edit it to directly link to my original image (you can find it on my Tumblr page) and put my name in the description box, or remove it. I will be back to check very soon. If it was a mistake to put your name on it and claim as your own, I'd like to hear your explanation.
#%&% - Hi, I have changed the image to include the credit to your account. Apologies, but I thought there were no restrictions on using the stock. I have never claimed to be the original photographer on the stock I use, and have stated many times throughout my blog that I use deviantart and sxc. I only place my url on the image to act as a point of reference so people can go visit my blog and check the rest out, not to claim I took the photo. Again, sincere apologies for the inconvenience. Peace.
Me - If that's true, why is my name not mentioned? Just stating 'many times' throughout your blog that you use Deviantart and Sxc is not enough, not even close. You need to ask permission (of everyone) before you take anything that is not yours unless it specifically states under their image that you don't have to. And that rarely happens. Please change 'image credit' to 'image by Cathleen Tarawhiti' and make the image itself linkable to the original image on DA. If this is a problem, just take it down. Peace.
I've changed my stock rules (to none!) so you don't need to contact me for permission, sorry this is quicker than answering my mail. I'd rather be out shooting, no offence I'm going to spend the next... forever changing each images description (bring on bulk edit), so if the image you want doesn't say this, I'm getting to it.
