A shameless plug for my new site, hope you don't mind:)

The reason I've not been on here for ages is that I've been working on my new site and I've finally launched it  lol  lol

It's taken over a year to get it up and running but hopefully it was worth the effort. I'll initially be selling kitchen knives but hope to offer other catering equipment later.

Very nice! Very straight forward, I wish you well. But hey, no lady chefs out there, mind you, you got pretty good company already! smile

Franco, Jamie doesn't use and hasn't ever used Global knives.

I've alerted his brand manager as to your use of his name and picture on your site.

There is also no advertising permitted on this site.

Please remove your link or I will exclaim

Did you get permission from these chefs to use their images? I hope you did or you will find yourself getting sued for a lot of money.

Why have the MODs removed your link?

I past links on here all the time and none have been removed while most contain violence and bad tasted humour.

Abdullah, Did you go onto his website? If you did you will know why Pete removed the link.  Also read Pete's reply. Jamie has never used that brand of knives and also he used a photo of Jamie without obtaining permission to do so.

I agree it is wrong to use an image without permission.

I am not saying he uses them all the time, but I think you will find that Jamie has used Global before - Jamies kitchen First episode he is making cheese on toast and the knife he uses is a GLOBAL.

So what was so bad about the site anyway?

There is nothing wrong with the site mikee, just that you are using Jamies image without his permission for commercial gain.

If Jamie has used a global in the past, it does not mean that he endorses the product at this time or plans to in the future.

It can be argued in a court of law that by having Jaimes pic on your site you are inferring that Jaime endorses Global knives.

I expect his lawyers will be in contact with frankee in this matter, as will the other chef's lawyers if you do not have their permission.

If you do not understand this, than you will not be in business for long as  Global will also get cranky for getting them in the poo.

FWIW there are a few popular chefs out there that use Global.

Do you think he would mind if I used his image on my hunting football hooligans site,
If I Photoshop it so it looks like his eating a human torso?
