This letter is in reference to the photos published by Style Sweets Magazine on our website www.stylesweets.com. It has come to our attention that we recently published photos that may not belong to the photographer who submitted said photos.
We here at SSM, take great care in making sure we get quality work from our photographers, and in doing so take Copyright Infringement very seriously. Unfortunately sometimes things fall through the cracks, but it is our policy to maintain the integrity of our business, by insuring that, not only we are protected, but our photographers as well.
Because we are a content base business, we pride ourselves on putting forth professional and quality work. Photographers make up 90% of our content and because of this we want to insure that our photographers remains comfortable in submitting their work to us.
Under the circumstances, we sympathize with those photographers whose work was previously published without their permission on other websites. We regret this unfortunate situation and have started a vigorous investigation into the matter of the images submitted by said photographer to us. We will remove the images in question to help rectify the situation in a speedy manner.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
Nicola Styles of Style Sweets Magazine
