    Lets spam his site with some events he might like to attend.

    Says it's a meeting place, but as far as I can tell he's the only one at the meeting.....

    The graphics are nice even if the owner isn't.

    WTF

    Yeah, he sent me a note about a month ago saying he wanted to use the pic. Seemed like a nice guy and I'm all for more info on the GS and Northern Cal rides.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    In my haste, I read fish's post the other way around. Gee, if he got permission, where's the ADVrider link. He must be member of this site as well. Least one would think.

    My apologies,

    the least the guy could do was include ADVRider in the weblinks list if he's gonna use the pics, give Baldy credit and all.

    BTW, nice sig line... I LOVE that movie, actually I love all 3 of them :lol3

    In fairness, I changed my post. At first, I was ticked to see it and no advrider link, then when I found out the real story, I changed it to the current version.

    Nope, he certainly didn't. And he added the tree himself, it ain't in my pic. I find it rather odd to see an image of Spain on the homepage of "GS riders of Northern California".

    I would have granted permission if he asked, but now I'm going to tap him. Image theft pisses me off big time (understandably, I guess).

    I think I'll grant permission in exchange for a link to advrider and credit.

    Here's a copy of my message to the site owner:

    Dear sir:

    I have found your place via a thread on the forums at Adrvider.com, only to see you are using one of my images without permission (the image of the yellow GS on the trail). As it turns out, I work as a photographer by trade, and do not take kindly to this kind of image theft.

    The fact that you have contacted the owner of Advrider.com to ask for permission to use the other image is deterring me from taking serious action by now, but you must realize that, although he is licensed to use my image in any way he pleases within advrider.com, you are not, much less allowed to alter it including extraneous elements in the picture, as you have done with the tree.

    In light of these circumstances, I will ask you to:

    1- Include a link to www.advrider.com in your links page, and clearly state the images were provided to you by such, after which I will grant you use of this one particular image,

    or,

    2- immediately remove the image from your site, and any other places or instances you may be using it, along with any other images under my copyright that you may have or be using.

    Please understand this is not a personal attack - I would have granted permission to use the image if only you would have asked, but the route you have chosen is illegal and punishable under both the US Copyright act and the Spanish Ley de Patentes y Derechos de Autor.

    I await news from you regarding this matter. Please note I will forward this letter to the forums at advrider.com, too.

    Regards,

    Roberto Alonso.

    PS: In addition to the above, I consider it ironic that you are using a photograph of Spain in a site labeled "GS Riders of Northern California".

    Don't you?
