Yes , definetly looks like violation. 6th photo is yours , you can see even airliners.net bar in the bottom. Photo that you linked is photoshoped (lighting on persons is from one sourse while on aircraft we got a lot of sources - windows also woman hairline looks odd). Write to the website admin , tell him that those pictures are yours - you got copyrights (one was used partially in photoshop as a background) and tell him if they do not remove your photos you will take legal action against website to keep your copyrights. It is always working.
Best regards and good luck!

Quoting Plainplane (Thread starter):
defecation to said photo

     

Did you perhaps mean "desecration"?

Unless they're using it as a toilet...........  

Sorry, it just made me chuckle. Definitely contact the site admins.

No I mean defecation as in look at the horrendous quality of the photoshop they did to my shot! Essentially they dumped the contents of the bucket all over it.

Plainplane,

I am afraid that my help is limited. Here is direct link to contacts:

http://www.cas.sk/clanok/85742/kontakty.html#redakcia

[email protected] - (e-marketing, maybe worth to contact them?)

Novy Cas is a tabloid newspaper, something similar to 'The Sun' or 'New York Post'. Make sure to send those scumbags proper bill.

Cheers,

Andrej
