Will try to make a long story short. I'm not a professional photog, just love photography. I take a lot of pictures when I travel and whenever I can locally. I don't sell any of them, mostly take them for personal use or for/of friends. I have a smugmug website that I use as another backup for my pictures and to share pictures with friends and family. In July a friend started as a realtor (made a career change) in a city not far from here. I love that city so I have a good amount of really nice pictures of it on my smugmug. She wrote an email to a bunch of friends and family telling us and sent out her new website (it's kind of like a blog about the city and with info on houses on the market there). She then immediately wrote me an email that said "PS I "borrowed" some of your pictures for my website off your smugmug, Thanks " It really angered me when I saw it. This friend used to be very close to me but we've grown apart over the past few years. We haven't been nearly as close as we used to. I decided to let it go and try to just let it slide (not a usual occurrence for me). I never replied to either email. We've talked since but never about that (and not often, last time was about a month ago). Then today she posted an update to her site about fall and put up a really pretty picture I took two years ago near my house (not her city). It's just a tree with fall leaves. It really struck a nerve. I immediately changed my smugmug website address/nickname and sent it out to the people I'm closest to. Do I have a right to be so angry? I don't have a copywright on the images but it hurts to have these taken off my site and put on her business site (and her business facebook page) without so much as a mention of my name or asking my permission. Sorry this is more of a vent than anything. I have no idea how to actually deal with the situation (or know if I'm prepared to).
