I really hate some photographers

You know how it sucks when people steal your images with no credit right? I see this all the time. I work with fan art where assholes will steal a piece, submit it as their own then try to get you to post the fan art under their name. I've also seen my 3 exclusive photos stolen plenty of times.
Even girls have this problem. They'll post their pictures or their boyfriend will leak them, then they'll show up on porn sites or forums.
Well, I've been dealing with this guy who is mad that I made a thumb of his picture then LINKED TO HIS OWN PICTURE. Why would anyone get mad about that? After 5 emails I've determined he wanted me to ask permission to even link to his photo, ask permission to even create a thumb to it. Or pay something like $1,000 to create a fucking thumb that links to his picture? wtfbbq. The photo is on a public flickr. The photo is also on REDDIT. I'm sure no one asked for permission to create a thumb for that. So this guy puts his photos public, then goes around digging through the logs to determine if someone is referring to his photos then asks for money or asks them to take it down. And the irony here is that had I never linked to his hosted picture, He would have never figured out I mentioned his photo. So the end result is I take his photo down, and he gets less business or appreciation. Stay off the internet then IMO.
I can sorta understand the reasoning. What people do is create totally awesome photos, then jerks steal the photo and insert it into their news articles and stuff and don't even credit them. But that's not at all what was going on here, I just had a thumb that linked to their hosted image. I tried to explain all that but some of these people, they got a stick rammed up their ass so far you can't even deal with them. And why I've posted this to begin with, I notice this often with photographers. Maybe they've been burned so many times they've just become jaded jerks.

This Image Is Not Free

|This is how they make money. I use stock icons and photos all the time and you always have to look out for what licensing scheme they`re using. It`s like the "freemium" business model in software/games where it is free and some features come at a cost, except here it`s free until they sue you (basically, it`s free if you`re a nobody, but if you`re a big company with big pockets then it`s money in the bank). Kind of like how software companies (Microsoft) enforces it`s software licenses, just go after the big guys. :P|

|I'm not saying they don't deserve money. I'm saying I'm trying to send money their way by sending people to them and they don't want it.|

|I get this all the time.|
This isn't really as applicable as your gas pump pic, but I created an entire album full of really cool D3 pics that has been used ad nauseum since I created it and not once did I ever get credit for it.
Even fansites have stolen it and used it without giving me credit. I know I didn't create the content of the pics, but it took me a damn long time to compile them all and it was a lot of work. All I've ever asked for is recognition that I did, in fact, spend a lot of time on the thing you are currently enjoying.
If I were you, and some jackass tried to steal someone else's fanart, I'd ban their damn account.
