zuls - your pictures removed. Thank you.
jimmychin - normally if want to use ppl’s photos must get permission from the owner 1st.. Even though newspaper want to use the photos. They need to pay you “copyright” fee.. maybe few hundred like tat.. u email to complain them.
WinnieKepala - Oh dear. If they didn’t ask for permission or credit you for it, you should send them a letter or email to remove it, credit you or pay you for the use.

uno - So, what is the action you will take???
Locksley Ng - I hope you have sued them for stealing your photos. It’s not right at all.
