yes, actually they CAN..........but it IS stealing (I guess??)..I just sent them an email asking that they take down the pics.
Actually, pictures 2, 8, 9 and 10 and 11 came from our web site.

Unless you have something on your website saying the content is copyrighted, they can take them. But you should still ask permission before you take pictures from someone and post them on your site. The worst part I think, is claming they built them (or it sounds that way), and even if they intended them to just be example pictures of styles, then they should have sited where the pics came from.

Not legally, they can't.


1) "If it doesn't have a copyright notice, it's not copyrighted."
This was true in the past, but today almost all major nations follow the Berne copyright convention.

For example, in the USA, almost everything created privately and originally after April 1, 1989 is copyrighted and protected whether it has a notice or not.

The default you should assume for other people's works is that they are copyrighted and may not be copied unless you know otherwise. There are some old works that lost protection without notice, but frankly you should not risk it unless you know for sure.

It is true that a notice strengthens the protection, by warning people, and by allowing one to get more and different damages, but it is not necessary.
