In this case I even contacted Corax's lawyer, who said he could get it removed, but it would cost me about $120 and I wouldn't get anything in return. In other words the guilty party gets away scot-free and I have to pay. Hardly seems fair or right, does it?
I would take action against these guys if there was some way that made sense.

This thread prompted me to do a bit of searching and in less than 10 minutes I found over a dozen sites that had stolen the same photo. None have given me credit, but at least they didn't put their own copyright directly on it (though some do copyright the page). Many are in eastern Europe, and Nepalese trekking agencies seem to like it.

I've sent them a couple of e-mails.

Dave + Moni - Thanks.
Kai - weird. That's Ari Paulin. He's a member of SP and he's active.
Elves - If as in the case of Kai/Ari, I think you should somehow act on the former's behalf. At least ask Ari what the hell is going on.
Moni wrote:I just translated the response to Dave from the webmaster of the site that started this thread. The webmaster was very apologetic - he was given the photos to post and did not know they were stolen (I will give the benefit of the doubt about that at this point). So expect to be contacted personally for permission to use the photos.
We are working on the OEAV site now.

Cool. I don't care that folks are using the picture (in a non-commercial manner.) All I want is a photo credit.
