She is at it again - Havanese-puppy-guide.com

Well, I happened to check out the havanese-puppy-guide.com this morning and to my surprise, Brady's pictures are back on her website. It looked like she has put back on all the pictures that myself and others here asked her to remove. Of course, I have sent her a not so nice email already. So, for those of you who had your pictures being used without your permission on her site, check it again. I can't believe they are back on there. I did send PM's to Irnfit and Honey Poney's as I saw both of their dogs back on the page.

I guess some people don't learn Eh. Sounds like she was waiting it out so-to-speak until we all went about our merry ways and then just put them up again hoping none of us would check the site again. She must have thought we would think that she got scared and didn't want any undue attention. I think the warning should be more permanent this time.

The nerve!! Glad you spotted that, Karen. I hope she gets some really ticked-off emails this time.

I turned off right clicking on the images. This will take care of 90% of the copying. But you all wont be able to save pics from here either.

I can also put in a feature to automatically watermark all of the photos if you want me to. It would not be an option, it would do it to everyones. If you want me to do that, I will. It will only be for the gallery. If you put an image in a thread you will have to watermark it.

I think this is one case of a real jerk. I hate changing everything based on the actions of one person, but I will if its what you want.

Is her having the picture there so bad? She is not selling the dogs or taking credit for them, correct? I would hate for us not to be able to copy, like I did with the Hello Kitty exhaust.

Maybe the website had to be restored from an earlier version or something like that...
Who knows.. I would not bother with her any more, just send all emails to her provider..

Karen, how good of you to check back!!! I checked last week, didn't see any of "our" dogs, and left it....

Honestly, what a woman....ggggrrrrr.....

I remember someone had found the provider's details, I think it is time to stop contacting her, but contact the provider straight away.....

Smarty: it's not so much her using the pictures, it's the principle of using pictures without permission that 's the problem.....and yes she IS making money and the dogs are used as illustration as to say she has experience with many wonderful Havs...

Mellissa, the right clicking would be a very good start, I mean there are ways around that, but could make such ppl look for easier copiables.......and for the ppl wanting to have a piccie for their own personal use, you could send the person a private message and ask them to email it to you.....

Not only that, but it is unlawful misappropriation of a copyrighted image. You take a picture of your dog, you own the copyright to that image and if someone wants to reproduce them in connection with commercial use, they need your permission. I'm sure she wouldn't be thrilled if she were reported to the Federal Trade Commission. /end lawyer talk

For me, it is just principle. It really isn't hurting me, I am just POed at this point. I probably would have said yes if she asked me before she used my picture, but the idea of her using it without my permission irks me. Plus, according to her website privacy page, she claims that all of the pictures she uses are copyrighted to her. I think that is kind of nervy of her.

Mellissa, I think you should see what people think of the options you have to make changes to the gallery. I hate to see you change things based on one person as well. But, I would worry that in the wrong hands, the pictures of puppies in the gallery could be used in scams, etc. like we have heard of happening to some of our breeders out there.

Please don't think I agree with what she is doing, I do not..........I do think once something is on the internet there is very little you can do to protect it. If so half the websites would be in trouble. I just hate Melissa having to change things.
