Default Re: What do you do?

If you feel you can, you could let that person know (in a tactful way). Sometimes, people don't realize that it's not right to do that. That people spend tons of time on photos and products, and you shouldn't use their work to sell your products. I would say this is especially problematic if they are using them on a site. Misrepresenting someone else's work as your own isn't right. They may just be doing it because it's easy, not realizing it's inappropriate. (of course, they may just be evil and bad too, haha)

If they are showing them to someone else as kind of inspiration (privately), and both know that they are someone else's photos, that may be a bit of a gray area. May not be right, but not quite the same...

Good luck : )
