One of my photography friend Q8e, found my picture while reading the newspaper, and sent me a Flickr e-mail mentioning the page number where the picture was published. He also took an interesting photo of the infringement and posted it here.
I posted the news about the infringement on a very popular Kuwait forum, and the forum admin immediately posted it on his even more popular blog, www.248am.com.
Needless the say, the reaction has been very interesting. I even received an email from another magazine editor denouncing this blantant violation of intellectual property rights.
I have sent an e-mail to Al-Qabas, but have yet to receive any reply.
