Jokes aside, this is one of the stores that made me blink twice when I had a quick road trip to Khafje (Saudi Arabia) to finish some banking paperwork. We also spotted Saudi Fried Chicken, which my friend tried and said wasn’t bad. Spotted a gaming store with Playstation 1 logo on it. It’s like this city and Kuwait are 10 years apart.
Unfortunately I now have to watermark my photos with this ugly spanning text but frankly I am fed up of news channels like KuwaitUPTODate stealing my photos or content pretending they’ve randomly found out about it, even worse sticking their logo on it as if they had authorized exclusive rights to it or they took it themselves (zero ethics).
Like when I posted about my friend meeting the staff behind the new bank note. Unsurprisingly it was up on his page hours later. Ironically he even mentioned who was who on the photo which was something that wasn’t mentioned on my friends instagram post (even if I were to give him the benefit of doubt). It was only written on my blog. Of course this isn’t the first time this has happened (I can list more) which is why i’m getting fed up of this unethical and unprofessional behavior, other channels are doing it too and for some reason it’s mostly Facebook Pages.
I have nothing against using my content or my photos, as long as there’s proper crediting with a link back to my blog. I know the owner of that page will be reading this which is why I’m writing it. Channels in Kuwait seem to hate giving credit when needed, you only make more enemies that way. It might be time to make a change.
