My picture came out in NST (31 July 2008) but NO CREDIT MENTIONED..

They didn't steal from my website.. They just didn't credit that it was mine..

NST got hold of my picture from a local publisher. It was agreed that to be credited for the photographer (me) but as I went through the newspaper, there was none.. Any suggestions for further action?

Iskandar..the most appropriate thing to do now is probably check the terms and conditions (in black and white) where and when you gave the distribution company the rights to distribute your image with accreditation. If it did not specifically mention any of this then you probably don't have a case against that publisher. Word of mouth isn't deemed as proof, black and white is... And you do not have a case against NST. You have a case against your publisher, if they did not enforce that rule of accreditation against NST.

Good luck.

if there isn't black and white. then so does NST :-D
and publishing a photo without the owner's permission is one HUGE mistake.
