Ananda Bazar Patrika using my picture without my permission.

5:19 AM


Another day one more theft. 


Today by one of Bengal's leading news paper Ananda bazar Patrika. See my picture being used for Wednesday (31st July'13)'s Ananda plus without my permission and my knowledge.


They even cropped the image to get rid of the watermark.

  1. Oh God Sayantani....this is so cheap on the part of Anand Bazar....Why can't they spend a few minutes to take permission from the author, instead of spending the same amount of time cropping a beautiful pic....utterly shameful & disgusting! Don't let them get away with it dear! Mail them the consequences of copyright infringement and a timestamp of your post with the pic...they'll have to take notice.

  2. This is a sheer case of stealing someone's hard work. Don't let them get away with it. Post it in every social media so that this blatant plagiarism is exposed by this publisher.

  7. It's the most annoying thing that can happen to any blogger. You probably should contact them to give you credit.
    Sorry, it sucks.

    I want to take action against such practices... How can I proceed against them? Did you take any action against them?

    Thank you.
