I'm commenting just to show my support from the whole Snooki Fiasco. It's incredible and disheartening to see how many fail to understand why that sort of thing isn't ok. But then...they are also Snooki fans. Hope you get the compensation you deserve.
Well its a tough lesson but the internet is a free for all unfortunately.. frankly it's better that occasionally this kind of BS happens then having it locked up tight and regulated (which is what the large cable and telecom companies are pushing for). Great pic, good talent, no excuse for some so called professional to rip off your work but if you want to keep these things close to your chest then watermarks may be an option. Good luck!
