Just found my very own gas pump that still sits behind my house in Stockholm, Sweden, pictured on a a magnet in this ebay auction, 170345247016 ...everything on the net is for free, or?

I don't really care, was just a bit surprised.

An amazing number of people think that it is alright to take someone else's picture and use it for their own purposes. It makes me wonder about their ethics concerning customer service or taking larger things.

Claes,
Send him an email asking for Royalties for the use of your picture.

At least it is only a 99 cent magnet and not a $10 photo or poster. Regardless, it shouldn't be done. (I see seller pulled auction)

Wonder if T-Way has seen these?...

Dick, I asked her about it but luckily she was "innocent" as it was her "supplier" who had given the picture to her ;-)

YEH RIGHT !
I'd tell her nice try, but it won't fly.
They are the supplier.

So easy to do what they are doing, no graphic touch up involved.
Save image to a file, shrink & print as needed [sold]. Most of their decals are 1" - 1 1/2".
