This shot from my school days was presumably purloined from my Facebook page (well done on those security settings, Mr Zuckerberg) and it now being used to hawk fifteen dollar tees and promote witty phrases like the ones below.

Obviously I’ve reached out to Ginger Problems to resolve the issue. I don’t mind my likeness being used commercially – just not without my permission.

  4. [...] Third on the list was a twitter account, @GingerProbs – who not only had the audacity to rip off my picture, but also ripped off the last Twitter fraud who’d done that. [...]
