I was browsing through Rediff News this morning and was going through a story on Cherrapunjee. In their multi-page slideshow, I clicked on the second page and jumped when the page loaded. A picture of a waterfall I had taken at Cherrapunjee was smiling at me from the web page! Rediff had not only posted the image without  my permission, they had also attributed the photograph to a “Sunil Bhatia!”

You know what I hate about such incidents? That you almost always discover your own pictures being used by accident and then you wonder how many you didn’t discover?
