No. They are a non-profit, trying to do good things. Legal action would have just cost us all time and money.
'Tis a shame. I would have gladly given them permission, but instead they chose to be inconsiderate.
Another time, a photo thief stole -- and was trying to re-sell -- photos from me and several other people. The creep claimed that he wouldn't remove the photos because he "went to a lot of work" to get them and sell them on the net. My god! That time we had the backing of a major corporation who took legal action.
Watermark your photos! And never upload full resolution copies.
