So... I was informed yesterday by a dear friend that my husband's image is posted on Facebook:
It came complete with a "Wow! Please share this photo" description!
It was credited to someone else, not to Georges Kyrillos.
This was enough to make me panic. Then I saw the number of shares and how things were getting out of control very quickly. I did comment, I did sent the page a message to please remove the image, & I did file a Facebook complaint for copyrights infringement.
Very few people responded positively (0 response from the page, though), but most were sarcastic and disrespectful to my comments. Here's an example of someone who tried giving me lessons in marketing:
His comment was "Eliane Haykal I removed the image from my page, may your husbands career as a stock photographer wither in obscurity." & he even made a post on his page Prevea Art & Imports which all us Stock Photographers whose work gets stolen should benefit from!!!! People are unbelievable.
Any help in commenting on these Facebook pages, or any advice on how we should proceed to stop this would be greatly appreciated.
This is the image in question:
Photo credits: Georges Kyrillos.
