I’ve already closed this topic few days ago but, it seems that it is not. Sadly, I’ve to write more about it.
Ms. Riham Saeed seems to be not aware with what is going on in her program so, I am just replying on what is said on her tongue during MBC ET Belaraby (Episode: 9/6/2015). She mentioned that they (she or Al Nahar TV) bought the photo from me, paid money to me and that the channel of Al Nahar TV or Sabaya El Kheir on the youtube is opened again!
So, to make it clear for everyone here.
Number 1 – I did NOT sell my photo to Al Nahar TV or Reham Saeed or to any human being on this earth. I did not receive any money from Al Nahar TV or Sabaya El Kheir and I still own all the rights of this photo to the moment of writing this post and if they already bought the photo as you mentioned on MBC ET Belaraby so, why did Sabaya El Kheir crew remove it from the background of the program’s decor?

Second, I would like to announce that Youtube and Facebook removed all the content violated my rights and contained my artwork. Thanks for protecting copyrights worldwide, all the respect goes to their support teams.
Third, Negotiations between Al Nahar TV and me has reached a dead end due to financial disagreements. Based on that, I’ve notified Al Nahar TV to remove my artwork from the next live episodes of Sabaya Al Kheir. Actually, I do not know whether they will implement that or not but, I will act based on their reaction to my request. Read the rest of this page »
It is not funny thing to say that we’ve a very poor copyrights system in Egypt and that everyone is able to use whatever he/she wants without paying back the cost of using the others efforts. Personally, when I use the other’s work, I give full credits to the owners/creators of the work or pay the cost of using it.
However, the boring story just happened with me, I just discovered that one of my favorite artwork has been used as a part of the main background decor behind Riham Saeed (Program Presenter of Sabaia Al Kheir). I do not mind sharing my artwork everywhere However, giving full credit or a small attribute to my name is a basis of respect that media makers should give attention to.
