7 February

I found that someone stole this picture from here and published it in a magazine without even asking me! Seems now I will have to add watermarks to all my images, I do hope that these do not detract from the images I enjoy sharing with you.

When I challenged the publisher they responded as follows

Dear Tony

I can only offer my sincere apologies and regret that in this instance we have not taken due care and diligence to ensure that all of the necessary permissions were in place. If you accept our apologies I would be more than happy to publish a full acknowledgement in next month’s magazine together with an outline of any photographic services that you offer.

I can assure you that this will not happen again.

I hope that is acceptable and again offer my sincere apologies.

Best regards,

A few years ago I wrote a blog post on my visit to Cuba. I found it later, almost word for word, in a travel guide.
You should tell them apologies don't pay the bills, especially since your blog clearly says your photos are not to be used without permission, and are available for sale.
I know you won't because you are nicer than me...LOL
It's a great picture.
