They just put it on their website without asking permission  Angry
I have searched for a email address but can't find it.

Is this site have something to do with continental Airlines?
Please can some of the US guys help me out to get in contact with them via email.

Damn this is the second time in one month they took a photo without asking or pay for it!!

Maybe it is better to insert a watermark in future uploads  Confused

Cheers,
William

You know the gear is up and locked when it takes full throttle to taxi to the terminal.

Thanks William and Dustin for bringing this to my attention, and to you Vas for digging out an email contact.

I've not knowingly been in this position before (I still don't like the idea of a watermark though), so would welcome any thoughts on how to proceed. My initial reaction was to think to email them, draw this theft to their attention and ask them what they are going to do about it. Then, depending on any response, maybe up the stakes a bit - though in the end I think it is difficult to get very far often, from what I have read in similar threads in the past.

All the best.

Paul
