Need an image? Simply pick one on the Web! That is what happened to photographers Jonathan Robert and Mathieu Lessard et Karine Lévesque, who discovered that a French photographer used their photos to promote her Web site! She firstly did not reply to their messages and e-mails, but after seeing this story posted all over facebook, she publicly apologized and removed the pictures from her website.
The  French photographers organization, L’Union des photographes professionnels, wants to change this mentality toward image use by launching a shocking advertisement campaign;
It’s obvious that professional photogrphers are not being listened to. So, for the first time, e’re speaking to the photographic community with an image. We  hope to raise awareness among the public, as well as the media and the government, about photographers’ problems. Each day, photographers are faced with decreasing rates. They are forced to compete against image libraries that are offering vile prices. These practices are infringing on photographers’ moral rights.
A good way to know if your images are used without your consent on the Web is the search engine TinEye, which allows you to make a reverse research from an image. Have you found something?
