    I found one of my flathead lake pictures posted on a wordpress blog.

    I’d like that picture removed from that blog and I left a polite comment on the blog saying it was my pic, and a link to my original post. Now I seem to have been blocked from that blog.

    The wordpress post is in quesiton is below and my picture is the lower one in the post showing the sun coming through the clouds.

    I posted it in July of 2006 and believe I took the picture with a Nikon 5600 point and shoot camera.

    I woudln’t bother you with this but I couldn’t find another place to flag or bring it up, and I suspect I’m being ignored by the blog owner.

    It isn’t a huge deal or anything, but I wasn’t asked to use the photo, and I want it removed from this word press blog if that’s possible. I couldn’t find a place to flag or contact otherwise.

    Thanks for your time Don Gauld.

      It doesn’t matter if the copyright violation is on a WordPress generated site or not. The blame lies with the owner. Please see What Do You Do When Someone Steals Your Content and How to Report Abuse to WordPress.com IF and only IF the site is hosted by WordPress.com. Otherwise, WordPress is not responsible for the actions of users of their publishing platform no more than Microsoft is responsible for plagiarism using Word.

      Please follow the guide in the first article on how to use the DMCA to report this to the site owner and other legal places. I’m sorry this happened to you, but it happens to everyone on the web today. Take legal action and do not blog this or make it public pointing to the site as that can result in defamation, carrying heavier legal actions against you than copyright against them, unless you don’t point fingers and just use the incident as an educational lesson for your readers. Just don’t name names.

      Good luck.
