Default Re: photos are changing there

Hallo Thorsten!
I've also written to them concerning two of my photos. I wonder whether these thieves will answer. Perhaps the TE administrator should/could put pressure on them...?!
Thanks for your information!

They have answered my mail saying simple that the photo has been removed. I have checked and it seems ok.

Default TE must do something!!!

OK, it seems that all the photos of all the guides come directly from TE. (I recognized the first photo I see in the France guide).

IMO TE MUST do something by itself and under its name to make them pay or remove all the picts stolen from here!!

Default Re: Organized photo stealing from TE!

I commented a photo here by someone in Italy, and he sent me a link to look at his real photos. The good photographers don't post their best work here. Common sense. (Unless they have an inimitable style that's easy to spot.) Now, I DO post my best here, but even then they are not stolen. I am sad.

If you are good, don't post your best stuff on a photo sharing website. Then again, it seems that the most oft stolen seem to be landscape/cityscape type images, that thousands of people have the same shot of.

Someday my photo may be stolen. I hope.

don't despair ... you are at the right place for it on TE ... someday it will happen

(in stead of a copyright on the photo, you could mention, 'Please steal me', kind of a Bill Gates sales policy, you ask the money after .... )

Oh Henk, I tried to get my pictures stolen, sort of an ego trip. How crushed was I when there were no takers? It's as mortifying as a stripper who dances a set and gets no tips. Oh, yuck. "Bones" is on TV.

To me, according to this, they can sell our picture.

That would be a totaly new thing to me and it would make me think twice before going on uploading photos here on TE...

I'm waiting for a confirmation from those who understand english better than I do...
