Copyright Infringement Warning to Cape Town Photographers

Its every photographer's responsibility to be vigilant in terms of images being used without permission and to take the necessary steps to manage / report the copyright infringement to the appropriate users / parties / authorities.

Copyright infringement / management will also be discussed during our upcoming Landscape / Long Exposure Workshop Workshop at Intaka Island / Woodbridge Island, Cape  Town on 7 / 8 April.

Below is a post I made earlier today (on my Vernon Chalmers Photography website) of an Airbnb establishment on Woodbridge Island using a landscape / seascape  image without my permission.

Other local / international websites (mainly accommodation, travelling / tourism and advertising) using / used  a Vernon Chalmers Photography image without permission (links to posts on this website)
