Silence is Golden

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Some folks keep using others people pic's without permission! This one of mine is being used a lot in blogs! Now this use is illegal and so a violation of my COPYRIGHTS. Why not ask polite and you can use them (mostly for free with permission)!

Is that too much to ask?

In the old days when people had done something bad they were tied to a pillory for everyone to see and they were publicly humiliated.

My digital pillory;

Everyting (will) is (be) OK Scott was so kind to send me a personal massage on Panoramio!With his apologies he promised to give me credit for the picture. Thanks a lot for that Scott!!!! if you need a cheep copy you can always get it in Asia...... or perhaps South-Korea ......

Silence is Golden my picture used in the video from 1.18 to 1.32

There were many more blog containing this picture (on blogspot by Google) but a mail send by me to Google arranged them to remove it from those.

Cheers, Erik
