Naom Galai eventually discovered and you can see the full story in this video. His blog explains more about how this happened and how the photographer has used the publicity to his advantage.

    Unfortunatelly a lot of graphic design company use Flickr to steal picture for their work and they don’t pay attention (or don’t care?) for the copywrites… :(
