Odd situation with found image


Recommended Posts

Just come across this reported usage from August of an image of ours.

However the image online on the Daily Mail's website  isn't  CW0RK2.

 

I've just done a Google image search for CW0RK2 and it appears on about 8 other news sites although I have no record of a recent sale.

Is it likely that the DM initially used our image and the other sites lifted it before it was changed to a different image? I can't think of any other explanation!

I had a similar situation where I did an image search on a reported sale that came up with a number of blogs and other sites that don't pay for content, each  pointing back to one of the British dailies.

 

When I went to the newspaper site bloggers had cited as a source it showed a surveillance video. All I can imagine is that they used the stock photo initially, the bloggers stole it and then the newspaper replaced the photo once they were able to get the video.
