LF, I just hate seeing it when a pic is posted on a COMMERCIAL site without requesting permission in advance. I don't have the stamina tonight to cross-reference web-photos and what is represented here. That's not my job anyway. I just thought I would give a heads-up...
Don't get married, don't have kids, and you will have more money than you know what to do with...

I wrote not only to the webmaster at PIA but on their website they have the names of all of upper management (im talking the top people in the organization)- well they were all cc'd on my email and this evening I have received notification that the webmaster has removed my photo. They took my PIA 747 photo, took off my PHOTO BY JOE PRIES, stripped off the airliners.net from the bottom (the black bar) and used it on their site. Luckily they responded quickly and removed it.

Looks like they removed all the photos!
I'm curious.... why did those of you who had photos on the site simply not ask for credits?
In a way I would find it flattering to see my stuff used as long as credit was given. In this case, at least, PIA was not trying to profit from the use of the photos so I would think it would be ok to let them use them.

Sunil, Of course they are profiting from the use of the photo(s)...They are in business to sell tickets...The web site sells tickets, the picture(s) sell the web site...Think about it......
And also regarding credits...They took the airliners.net logo and photogs name and obliterated it...why? for their own personal use/reasons..Would you ask the guy that robbed you of your car to: "paint it red, it will look better"

That's not the point. It's not just about credits, it's about having the common courtesy to ask before using photographs. Sheesh - I get individual users emailing me to request permission to use my photos as Windows wallpaper - why should PIA be able to do what they want with my photo without my permission? If it's on their website, it could also be on their advertising, their stationery and anything else they choose - and that's worth a lot of money!
I too have written to the webmaster demanding removal of my photograph - it would seem that they have removed them all!

considering that we (I am a prof. designer) pay at least 500 US $ to photodisc.com or tonystone.com (look at the prices there !) for a pic in good resolution (that means: much larger than the pics here - you can almost only use those here for webpages) for print, this is a fraud. make them pay, it's as simple as that. they used the pics. removing them now doesn't legitimate using them in the past.
