Default Organized photo stealing from TE!

I found this one Travel Guide site full of TrekEarth photos! It seems that all the photos on the site have been stolen from TE. I spent just a little time on the site but still I found about 20 TE photos.
Ther is also two photos of mine so I know they didn't ask our permission to use the photos.

Here is the list of the members whose photos I found:

rstouffl
mikele_pl
onthemove
TravelerNL
thor68
maltagirl
leonorkuhn
miumiu
Karmenu
mdetay
tarantaevv
anes_lc
joaschmidt
ellelloo
Maged
dumbo

I'm sure there is much more TE photos so please check the following link:
http://www.finland-travel-guide.info/

Just click some of the links on the site and you will find more and more TE photos.
From the bottom of the page you can find stolen photos from different countries by clicking some of the links.

The web sites are really official looking and there is even European Union flag on the site logo.

I'm just thinking if someone is making money with our photos without our permission we should do something. But what can we do?
