Oh What a Feeling

I have a photo in my flickr stream of my brother and me skiing (well trying to) a huge powder day in Alaska. I started to see links to the photo from the website. Digging around a bit, I found an ad for the 4runner that basically copied a whole set of pictures from flickr and used them on their site.

You can see the screen capture here: Featured Alaska Powder Skiing Pic

Subsequently, other flickr photographers started to notice the same thing. One or more of them contacted Toyota who is now in the process of removing the photos from their site.

Here's the original pic. I'm in the red trying to navigate the storm.
