    Default Question

    So, a while back I made a trade with this guy, and I recently saw it for sale. Now I don't care, it's his to do with as he pleases, but two of the three pics in the ad, are pic that I took and used in mine. Is it wrong that this bothers me? Do I say something, or ignore it?
    Any input would be helpful.
    Thanks guys.

    Lazy is its own punishment. I kind of feel sorry for the guy. On the other hand, if he has altered or damaged it since buying it from you and is using your photos to hide it, that's wrong...but will also probably be its own punishment.

    Why would it bother you? It's the same guitar, right? He liked your pics and used them. What do you want, a byline?

    If he used your pictures to sell a different guitar, that would be wrong. Is he making a profit? Maybe that's what's buggin' ya? It would me.

    Thanks for the input. I don't really know why it bothered me, I guess I'll just move on!
    Thanks all!

    So long as it's the same guitar with no subsequent alterations/damage, then I see no issues.

    Though it would have been courteous if he'd asked you first.

    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.

    The first couple I traded away got moved on not long after I made the trades and they used pics of mine. I figured, oh well, didn't suit them I guess. As far as the pics go, really doesn't matter.
    Whether you think you can...or you can't...you're right!

    Some mistakes are just too much fun to only make once!!!
