    I was wondering what you guys thought.

    With the customers permission, I take photographs of their properties and use them on my website. I consider the picture to be mine and therefore have the right to use it.
    Recently a customer moved and the new owners imported their old window cleaner so my services were not needed. However for a few years I have used a picture of this property on my website. The house is quite impressive and it looked pretty good.
    A few days ago, I was contacted by the new owners asking me to remove the picture from my website, (not too sure how they knew) which I did.

    Now I'm thinking that its my picture and therefore I could use it if I desired. I wont put it back on the website, but was just interested in your stance on this.

    you feel wronged . it would be easy to edit the foto with a big coock standing just inside a front window then upload it back onto your site - but i sense you wont do it.

    Whatever the letter of the law, this is probably one of those ones where you are better off just removing it. Annoying, but if it's not your job anymore then find another good one to replace it with.
