Even if they (Emporis) didn't, Betterhomes is a business entity so they can't use someone's elses job/hobby (like Imre, Tom_Green, me and others) and make money out of it. They either have to do the job themselves or pay the "freelancers" who did it.

As simple as that.

You seem to fail to realise that they are effectivly exploiting the people who did the original work by taking there efforts for free and making money out of it.

it is stealing.

this is the point. if your work is not licensed for commercial use (as per your type of license), and they use it, maybe whoever took the pictures can sue them or at least this will be a deterrant for them
