Dave, I would immediately get your people to speak to their people.

Summon your agent without delay!

That really is disgraceful behaviour by a supposedly reputable company. Removing the watermark makes it worse as they knowingly stole the shot and also admits they knew whose work it was.
They owe you, they know that, and you should demand payment or legal action will follow.
It's the principal that counts as much as anything. To be honest, if you post anything on line you have too be prepared to have it copied by someone.
The best ways to prevent it are not to post anything or stick your watermark across the middle of the shot....  but of course you already know that. Just shouldn't be necessary to do either.

Not only have they engaged in disgraceful behaviour with photographs, their journalistic prose has plummeted to new depths with the description of Police officers being 'gobsmacked' on seeing a youth run from a crashed car.

This might explain why so many adverts on thier web site.

The Daily Post is now Wales' best-selling regional newspaper, although the print sector remains in long-term decline.

A DP reporter - Elwyn Roberts - doesn't seem to know his verbs terribly well.  He's used 'span' as the past tense of 'spin' on a few occasions, now. The most recent was in a report on a Rhyl Night club owner, when it was reported "Prosecuting barrister Owen Edwards said the victim span the defendant around so that they were face to face and punched him several times, causing him to drop the axe."  If that was a direct quote, then the error is the barrister's but Spin is an irregular verb, anyway, so it should have been caught prior to being published.

 ;D ;D ;D

"Dive" is another one. Although the US do have 'Dove' as a past tense. English is full of exceptions to the rules. Comes from being invaded all the time.

Fully paid-up subscribers to the Daily Post have been unable to download their daily digital edition since Friday.

All attempts to contact the Daily Post via email, Twitter and Facebook have all proven fruitless.

It seems they are only available 9-5, Monday-Friday.

Still no reply from the digital Daily Post despite a reminder.

As I have an iPad, I informed Apple Customer Services and they have cancelled my subscription and a full refund has already been received.

So after a lifetime of reading the Daily Post and the North Wales Weekly News, I now only read the more reliable Pioneer, which is free and still amazingly gets delivered free every Wednesday here in CyD.

After feeding back their poor service to the Digital Daily Post, I am pleased to report I have received an apology from the Regional Managing Editor, Chris Walker, together with 2 x £10 vouchers as a gesture of goodwill.
