    Default Someone has been leeching shots?

    Hi... another Clubsnap member (Jeff) has pointed out something and i thougt it would only be fair if i pointed it out.....

    Siron/Simon, do you happen to post on another forum named ebyte?

    http://forums.ebyte.org

    Because if you don't, i believe some of your shots have been re-posted there (with or without your permission, i'm not too sure)

    Link 1

    To access the forum, you will need an account.

    I'll taken the liberty of creating an acc so that you can go see for yourself and ascertain if those are really your shots...

    Userid: junkacc
    p/w: nightsong

    This person, sonikbyte seem to be on Clubsnap too...

    Sonickbyte's profile in CS

    Anyway to track this person down?

    Dang, my shot of the badly worded CityLInk sign is also there!!

    This guy's homepage is listed as ebyte.com. So it's the same person doing the leeching. His last known IP is from SCV.

    i guess then it's up to all those who have their shots leech to take some kind of action against this "gentleman"?

    Edited:

    As we explored deeper into the shots he posted, we came to realise that not only Simon's shots were leeched. Infact a few others, like tomshen, SBS's OCH series, amongst others were reposted.....

    yes i just noticed it and was about to post here when i noticed wolfgang already posted! take a look at the Sun Yan Zi shots, above each photo there's a name there (i noticed magixshoe, erwinx). and a few photos even have Fred's Digital Imaging. The words so big somemore.

    Honestly, the least he could have done is to acknowledge where he took the picture from and the photographer who took it....

    All,

    I have posted a warning in his forum about leeching pictures - lets give sonikbyte a chance to respond.

    In the meantime, I would suggest that if sonikbyte had linked directly to your image, just change the image filename to disable that image.

    **monitoring situation for now**

    This guy got no respect at all for intellectual property. Hmm.. just wondering, can legal action be taken on such individuals ?

    Update - the thread is still there, but the images have been removed.

    Realised that the acct (and the one I registered) was disabled, thats why you get the "No such thread" msg when try to access the link.
