Welcome to a place of vision and beauty. Welcome to the world of space art.
Thanks for the list Kara. I don't ever recall having given Astrona permission to post my image, but the fact that they correctly cite the image and include a link to my website makes me reluctant to give them grief about it. Maybe at the very least I should let them know I'm aware of the (unauthorized) use?
As ever I am late to the party.
However I see that the work of members is still available for free down load on the site.
I am just a beginner so no one is going to snatch my art and put it up to attract folk to their page. It is not attributed when hitting on the larger image on their website and yet on my own site I can stop the 'save as' happy hunters of big images. Yes - I realise anything can be copied but the vast majority of folk get stuck thinking of ways around it.
If this Astrona use my property without permission, I would not have the gracious response of so many here. I may not send a death ray their way but I would without delay lay into them for infringement and false enrichment.

I agree that the site was well put together. That it should be removed was never the intention. I was merely asking the question whether our artists were aware of the site containing their art work? Had they given permission to the host to display their artwork? A simple "yes" would have sufficed. However, that wasn't the case and our artists now had to take their initiative to consider their options. If they do nothing, then I expect that they won't complain later that they were viloated of their copyright priviledges.
