BBC have thieved off me...again
« on: August 13, 2009, 11:16:59 PM »
BBC have nicked 2 of my photos, one of them from the same abandoned competition as the photo they nicked off me last year. Not only did I dispute that, which forced them to pull the re-use, but they haven't credited me for one of them.

I would strongly advise people to think twice before sending in any photos to BBC competitions as they clearly use them as a free stock resource.

I suppose they rely on people thinking 'wow the BBC have used one of my pictures!'  ???

Did the rules state they could use the pictures for their own personal gain?
If not i think you should contact them and advise that some of the licence fee payers would like to see some of the licence fee diverted from enormous wage bills and bonuses to the more talented!
