Hello and happy Friday. So, I'm "following" this site called Flying Academy on Facebook. FA is a pilot-school in Chezh Republic, Europe. I saw that they had posted a photo of a Hainan Airlines A346 B-6508. I remember that I saw that photo earlier today on the most viewed page here on Airliners. So, I took a look at their other photos and saw that the are stealing photos almost every day, without posting any information about the photograher, Airliners.net etc.

Etc,

So, I commented one of their photos, but I havn't contacted the photographers. Do they have any right at all to steal photos like this and then post it on their Facebook-page?

In a word, no. I'm sure they could post a link to the photos, but not the photos themselves without permission (even if they left the copyright, which they are stripping).
