To be or not to be upset Answered
So, with recently finding out that tons of people's instructables had been published without their permission on a paid subscription site, I decided to google my username and see if anything came up. This is obviously something everyone should do from time to time, and I figured it was time to give it another go. In the image search, I found an image I didn't recognize and clicked until I found the source of the connection to my username.
A seemingly reputable website has written an article on one of my ibles. At first, I was excited. It was cool that someone saw my work and thought it cool enough to write about it. However, that joy turned to turmoil when I realized that the article wasn't a short description accompanied by one or two images. It is a full rehash of my ible. Basically, anyone that sees the article can follow the links to my version (there are several), but the author of the article has really not given them any reason to do so. They've taken most of my images to re-write my ible without asking or notifying me. They didn't break the CC license by writing their own version, but I believe they did when they took all my images.
What do you think? Would you be upset and ask them to change or remove the article, or chalk it up to promotion and be excited to see your work spread?
By the way, there have only been 138 hits on my ible from that website.
