Alright I need everyones advice.. everyone has heard of extreme dimensions and their body kits, hoods, spoilers, and all that. well i was on their website looking at hoods for an 05 focus and guess what I see.. MY CAR!!! they are calling it a gt concept hood but all they did was take the pictures of my car and doctor them! i called and asked if it was a real hood and they said yeah it was released like a week ago. but i dont know.. take a look for yourself! http://www.extremedimensions.com/10460.html

OMG lol you can still see the grass through the window of the second pic from the top haha that's some funny shit. You can always email them and tell them to take them down because they didn't ask your permission?

I would take it as a compliment, but there's probably nothing that legally can be done about it. If the pics don't have a copyright mark on them, then anyone can use them.

? Were those pics from the FF gallery here? If they were, E.D. has got to be violating their vendor privileges here somehow. All of our pics are stamped once they're approved for viewing in the gallery.

I would PM our admin TOM about it and see what he says.

WTF? They photoshopped their product onto the car?
How hard is it to take a real picture...
I don't think they had anyone to put it on the car yet. They just got it in late last week and I think they are waiting for me to post pictures when I get the hood. I'll get it on Friday. They might have just surfed the net and looked for the focus and found your pic...call Derek, he is a good guy and will help out 888-611-2376 ext 24. Sorry they didn't let you know!

They posted a thread awhile back stating that they had a hood concept that was in production, that's why they didn't have pictures of the real thing up yet.

Legally i dont think you can do anything w/o a copywrite of your pictures, but heck id ask them for a discount or free products in turn for the picture!

i thought this was a joke at first glance, "that's not even your hood!" lmao, but yeah, funny stuff, it is pretty cool...

and btw, that is an awesome looking hood!

but again, as already stated, i think you have no real argument other than "you didn't ask me and it'd have been polite," unless they did indeed get the pic off ff...then it may be slightly different as they are stamped. if that's the case, maybe you can talk them into a discount or free hood?! lmao, doubt it, but never know.

Same thing happned to me a company on EBAY was using my picture to advertise there Headlights and I din't even have anything like there headlights on the car the blurred it out to look all black. I contacted them Stating that I need some type of compinsation either cash or products at first they replied yaa sure You have a great car blah blah they even took down my address and said they would send a pair of headlights with stickers to put on my car sorta of like a sponsorship and then I waited and nothing came and they won't respond to me anymore. But extreme is a pretty big company they shouls afford to give you a hood and take a real pic with it on.

by law the second he took the photos they are HIS property even if he posts them on the web they are still his... any good lawyer could explain this way better, but legally they cant use your images without your permission
