    If only the competition rights grab - for its own promotional and marketing purposes at all fields of use and with no time limits, including the publication of pictures or modifications, even without the signature of the author was less demanding?

    All entrants hand over image rights...and get nothing - not even a credit - in return.

    Everyone is free to do whatever with their images...but I just cannot stand by and watch a company help itself to creative rights.

    I'm looking at a new drysuit and Santi was one on the list.

    Not any more.

    Simon I completely agree, I've fallen out with other suppliers for the same reasons. One competition I looked at the rights grab was so blatant that if I'd shared my own image on my social media they could have sued me.

    Private guiding, don't follow the crowd.
