We have shown three of our own images so that you can compare.
We have a very low opinion of other dealers who steal our images, and use them to compete with us. It is dishonest. We could sue these people, possibly for thousands of dollars, but it costs time and money, and even though we would win and be awarded costs, we might not be able to recover the costs if the copyright thieves turned out to be impecunious or insolvent. That's why we have decided to give these crooks some free advertising our our website, something which we do not normally provide even for payment.
Sterling Bullion.Org are not dealers, so we are more restrained in our thoughts about them. It does appear to us, however, that the site is unlikely to be run purely for the benefit of the public, and we presume that it is financed by income from advertising, links, sponsorship, or similar, in which case, it is a commercial site. While we have found a quote from, and credit to, one of our website, we can find no acknowledgement or credit for the photographs which have been used on the site.
As the site promotes other dealers, via advertising and other links, we consider that our photographs are being used in an unfair commercial manner, to the benefit of the site owners and its advertisers, other sponsors, and possible by its named contributors.
