    So we were down at the haunt today and one of the girls mentioned that she saw pics of our haunt under someone else's portfolio of their haunt on myspace.

    I just came home and looked and sure enough, there are 3 pics of *our* "asylum" under their 2008 Asylum.

    I sent a polite note to please remove the pictures that are not of their haunt. I mean I guess that's nice that someone else thinks another haunt is good enough to rip off their pictures and as their own, but that really pisses me off. I can't tell if their pics from the MHC bus tour or if they're pics that we've had posted on the web in the past. [edit] It looks like they were ripped straight from our own MySpace. Bah [/edit]

    Anyone else have anything similar happen?

    Watermark your images before putting them up online. That way there's no way of getting around it. I've watermarked ever image I put up in my gallery for just this reason.

    People are MORONS.

    I watermark my own personal "show" pics, but I don't update the MySpace, that's Ethan's job.

    I'll have to mark them all and get him to re-update them.

    Sadly there's not much else you can do as far as I'm aware of. It's happened to me once and never will it happen again!

    Good luck.
