Photo being used in comments

DL_Dietz says:

I had someone post a comment to 4 of my photos.

In each one it looks like what some groups have where they have a comment and then a drawing or photo. In this case it says: "Great shots I honor with the group:". It doesn't say what group though.

In this case the photo is mine but I only posted it to 5 groups and I cannot see that this person is a moderator/owner of any of those groups.

I sent a flickr mail to this person to see if he just did it for my posts or is he is using it to comment on other people's photos.

If he is using it for other people's photos is there a way I can get him to stop as, like most people here, I have my photos copyrighted and specifically state to contact me if you wish to use any. I was never contacted at all.

When you signed up to flickr you gave a licence for the use of your photos for the purposes of the site, or words of similar effect. I have no idea if this use is covered by that licence, but you may be on less firm ground than you think.
