stolen again

Originally uploaded by akshath
I would like to simply say, want to use someone elses effort !!!!! so do it with thier permission……. I m sure this hoarding is being witnessed by all the people in bengaluru [think about this]-lol…… so every time u see this…. just remember.. its not original…….

The photography you can see in this pic, of a mehendi hand, was originally shot by Akshath….. and is used by the magazine without his notice, which is so wrong…

Here is the link of the original pic:
If art can be stolen like this………..they are gonna make creative ppl stop showcase their works to the real audience….. and soon it will be…no more thinking as well….
You think u can support him, just get this across to people you know…….After all we are the people and we are the FORCE……

By the way, as I was posting this , my buddy pinged me and said this is the second time its happening to this guy…. how sad.. here is the steal 1:

And for a minute I was like.. this is really not done.. and I also want to add something.. that I think Akshath also should be doing something about this.. like disabling downloads by some means…if flickr does give us that option….. its one effort to stop these kinds of atrocities…..

    @sindhu – Well they did it, but again when the magazine was contacted, the photographer Akshath was told that, the ad agency who does the design for them did it. And it is based in Mumbai. And they did contact them, where they responded a couple of times and they said they would pay up for the image,but the photographer asked for a written apology from the firm and if they didnt send him one, he wanted to send out a lawyers notice. So will let u know what happened next, once i come to know!
