Default Washington Times lifted one of our pics (like a lot of online news agencies do)

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...ing-gun-crime/

It's MY Model 29 that I photographed for IMFDB. I just wish they would credit IMFDB when they JACK our pictures.

Are you going to say anything? It IS your image, after all.

I want them to credit IMFDB, not me. I shot these FOR IMFDB. at any rate, it would take an email from someone who is verifiable as officially representing IMFDB as an entity, which would be either Bunni or Zackmann.

Since it is inevitable, I am just going to maintain an ongoing 'list of shame'

Well hell. It's a type of publicity. I guess.

I just recently learned that someone from the wikia for the Hitman game series lifted one of my screenshots without asking my permission or crediting me. So yes, the problem isn't limited just to the "big shots" on this wiki.

As Uproxx pointed out when they lifted one of my Archer screenshots (without even changing the file name), we don't actually own screenshots, unlike MPM's gun images. But it would be courteous to actually acknowledge where the screenshot came from.
