Copyright Theft ... and More ... in the UK

Just got this email from Tom in London, England. The Mgmt.

Detail of online menu from Ray's Pizza of London, England. Full menu the jump.

Dear Slice, Letters From SlicersHi Adam,
I'm a reader of Slice and thought I'd let you know that this place (rayspizza.co.uk) appears to be using one of your photos from Di Fara in its menu: rayspizza.co.uk/downloads/raysmenu.pdf without crediting it to you (It certainly looks like a crop of this one: flickr.com/photos/slice/445237267).

Don't know if they have permission, or if you're bothered, but I figured I'd let you know.

Cheers,
Tom

PS - My girlfriend ate there a couple of weeks back, and said it wasn't great.

PPS - Thanks for writing about Di Fara; I went there for the first time about a month back and loved it.

Dear Tom,

Thanks for the heads up. I don't know if I'm bothered by it. I'm in a good mood today, so it's not gettin' me down. ;)

I think what's even more perplexing than a UK-based pizzeria somehow finding my photo of Dom DeMarco scissoring basil onto a pizza is that it's calling itself "Famous Original Ray's Pizza"!

I guess I'll have Lawyer Slice shoot off a cease-and-desist order ...

I'm happy to hear the stuff I've written about Di Fara was helpful.

Hasta la pizza,
Adam
