Daily Mail stealing photos again

The Mail Online has covered a story about a Great White shark in San Diego swimming near surfers [FreezePage link]. The story includes 6 photographs and it seems as if the Mail Online has been guilty of using the photographs without seeking the permission of the person who took them. Luckily the photographer happened to see that the Mail had used his photos and he even managed to get a comment through [click here for full size version]:

Interesting that he notes other news agents seemed concerned with making sure the photos were genuine before running them, something that I suppose the Mail Online doesn’t need to do when all they are doing is churnalising the story from other sources.

Big hat tip to @jeffpickthall for giving me this information.
