What a letdown from ElvisAustralia!

Wed Jun 05, 2013 10:26 am

What a letdown from ElvisAustralia! They have used a picture of my first avatar (FTD-LP) on her section of releases from Follow That Dream Records. I have done the LP with the FTD-Logo in Gimp 2.8 and used it her as avatar. Then I changed it because I don’t want become trouble with copyrights. Now the Australians used it on there website.

I’m very disappointed they don’t ask me! :evil:

A while back they reproduced a ~5,000 word article from my website in full without asking. A paragraph and "Read more..." link to the source would have been more appropriate.

That website is well-known for taking Elvis material (photos, articles, etc.) from anywhere on the internet, and acting like it originated with them.

It's despicable, but they aren't going to change now.

You will get used to it. The "Picture Section" of this very site is full of copyrighted photos posted with no permission from any of the photographers or the actual owners of the copyrighted material. It's all good tho :roll: Apparently?

Your comment has nothing to do with the topic.

But it's fair to note everyone posting those "copyrighted" photos is self-serving, and having a huge payday. ;-)
