Quoting ChrisH (Reply 3):

No Chris, it wasn't.

It was only a small copyright text on it.
Read the Watermark thread for examples of discussed watermarks. Watermark Option - Yes Or No? (by Administrator Jul 1 2005 in Aviation Photography)

Unfortunately it has now run off the edge and can not be discussed in any more. Hopefully Johan will give us some feedback soon on his thoughts.

Tommy,
He is using a bunch of mine too. I can't understand the website though, since like all good Americans, I only speak one language Sad Just kidding  Smile

Mark,

Well, it's an Hungarian website, and not one of my languages either...

Unfortunately all my emails are bouncing to all email addresses found.
Do you have a working email to them ?

Edit:
I finally did find some more info on them, and the registered owner
of the domain.
Email me Mark if you want more info.

Still don't see how a watermark would've stopped this guy.

Well Chris,

The pros and cons have been discussed a lot in these threads: Watermarks....protecting Our Images Against Theft (by AKE0404AR Jun 2 2005 in Aviation Photography)
and Watermark Option - Yes Or No? (by Administrator Jul 1 2005 in Aviation Photography)

so I won't start it all over again, but in brief;
No, it won't stop sites like this from stealing our shots.
But it will make the images less interesting to steal.

probably in general, but in this case it didn't seem to matter.

Ahh.. Just noticed it was 4 of my shots used...not 2.
Oh well....

Chris,
That's hard to say, but since none of the images used in this case were watermarked it could have helped. We just don't know until we try, do we ?

Yeah.....well ....what's new?..Another one to the list.

Perhaps a invoice for a billion million $ will solve this problem as some people wishfully expect.

Sorry to see some rogue using your pictures!

Unfortunately, we dont take any precautions so this will continue to happen at will. I guess an optional watermark is STILL a dream.

Mark,

Have you had any response at all from these guys ?
I haven't.

At least my emails aren't bouncing anymore, but without any reply or action from them it's quite frustrating.

Time to step it up a level....

Mark,

I finally got hold of the responsible people on this site, and
after today's phonecall the page has been shut down.

Hurray!

It wasn't likely to get any money out of them, so I settled for having the photos removed, and they complied quickly.
