OK Andy, I get the idea now. Thanks for the suggestion. I have had a look at the iWrite web site page that describes the book and the contribution that they made towards it. The following is a Google translation of part of the page. Remember, as a machine translation, this may not be totally accurat...

... in relation to publicity. For example he cannot authorise a third party 'publisher' such as a newspaper or magazine which is reviewing his book to use the image to illustrate their article. That would need a separate licence and a fee to be paid to you. Does that mean that he cannot authorise t...

Hi Shaun, I think that licence will probably be OK. It's not quite as legally watertight as it could have been, .... Andy, that isn't the actual licence agreement; I have yet to prepare the downloaded template. This was just so that he had a good idea what was likely to be included in the licence a...

OK Andy, I'll give that idea a miss then. I have just asked my ex neighbour, a retired district judge, whether he knows if the local County Court has any jurisdiction over EU communities and he was pretty certain that it does not. I have today received the initial payment from Andreas so I have sent...

Thanks for that overview Andy. I have written to iwrite again very much along the lines of your comments and added a statement "..With regards to your statement in a previous email "..From now on, we have the right to act against you legally in case you can't prove that your complaints to the hostin...

Oh dear, the iwrte team don't seem to want to take my word regarding copyright of the painting. Here is a copy of their recent communications ".. you didn't understand fully our demands in the last email. Your decision to make a complaint to our hosting company caused us financial losses. In this co...

After I wrote my last message I received an email with what amounts to an acceptance of my latest offer to the author of the book. As a "struggling student" I offered him the prospect of paying me the licence fee by monthly installments via a bankers standing order from his UK bank account. As his U...

Since I wrote my last message matters have progressed. Papaki were the Domain Registrars so no help there. The hosts were in fact the servers which you showed at the bottom of your list shown on the forum message, pipedns.com. Their web site is called JustHost.com and is located in the USA... I wrot...

Thank you very much for that info. In fact there is a UK/English flag in the top right hand corner of the papaki.gr site which very conveniently allows me to see what I need in English, including contact information. I have written to them on their web page messaging system as follows: "Dear Sir, I ...

I see that iwrite ("http://iwrite.gr") are using the same image to publicise the book in their portfolio.

Given that I have put them on alert, should they not be displaying this now?

I have now had replies from both the publisher (iWrite) that I sent an email to and from the author of the book, Mr Andreou. I have asked iwrite if they can tell me who hosts the site that the book is being sold to the public on (it has it's own site). Here are relevant extracts supplying the most r...

Thank you so much for a very informative reply. This is really helpful.

I have uploaded to the Flickr web site an image taken on my camera of a watercolour painting that belongs to my wife (it was painted by her grandfather who died in 1964) of the Berengaria Hotel in Cyprus. The image provoked a fair amount of interest, mainly amongst the Cypriot community, some of who...
