Canon UK recently got under fire for not crediting the photographer on social media.

A few months ago when it was announced that B&H (and other online retailers) had to start collecting sales tax for a whole bunch of states, a lot of people weren’t very happy. Of course, it’s not B&H’s fault, however, they decided to do something about it anyway.

This is definitely from my own experience and may not reflect other people’s, though I do believe this to be quite commonplace, more so if an agreement was not in place.
