I was doing some research on my ranked images (I have a lot of images) & noticed that a very popular SEO related blog ripped off multiple images from one of my old blogs (images I made), to post on their blog.

Mutha!

I won't say what the site is, but the site name has been mentioned quite a few times here on WF forums. I don't think it has any connection between my WF member or this forum.

They are a very popular site in the SEO niche.

What gets me, is the SEO site is a brand name site/blog that should be bringing in big money,yet they rip images from other sites.

      Lol, at Google.

      For my images it's seriously a popular SEO tool/blog/site that took the images. I would have thought they earn enough money to pay for legit images (apparently not the case).

      Those dirty b@st@rds!

    Send a nice copyright e-mail their way and see if they respond. Say when you created the images, the license under which you released it and soforth. Usually sites will just remove them to avoid hassle.

    Also, you could file a copyright notice to Google to de-index their page. Tough shot, but it'd hurt em!

    Oh yeah, and in the e-mail say that if they refuse to remove them, you'll be claiming $XXX in damages as a result of lost traffic and revenue.

    I've had this happen to me before, I feel you pain.

    Do what DNAWRealm suggests it can work!

    Boring suggestions here. No, don't do any of that.

    Shame them on Twitter. Copy some of the other SEO bigshots on the message. Then watch what ensues. Sit back and enjoy.
