    I've always used my own avatar, but I think people generally accept that avatars are not necessarily the work of the person using it.

    Oh, by the way, I hate to say this but this is a trend that is seen in forums world-wide, not just "here" wherever "here" is.

    He didn't response to this, didn't bother to remove the leeched pictures, maybe think that you guys will get tired and get sick of making noise, and all will go away eventually, so nothing will happen in the end.


    What a happy ending!

    Some of the people posting before me are talking legal action, compensation, but step back a little? You're trying to "teach a lesson" to a young man whom you all know has not gone to National Service. Are you trying to bully or resorting to scare tactics on someone who you know isn't mature or worldly enough to put up resistance?

    Or do you think he is just a convenient person to be made an example of?

    You might say, "Oh, but I've NEVER infringed someone else's copyright, so I am qualified to get all huffy and indignant about this breach of intellectual property!" but do let me know if your computer has not one single files (be it computer program, video, or MP3 or some other media) that complies with all the associated copyrights entitled to it.

    I am not condoning his actions, but neither am I condoning the actions of those who are baying for his blood.
    Very well said.
    Most people in a comfort country are so pampered that claiming they have a right to do that, to do this.

    Maybe what you can do it to leave a comment in his flickr telling him that this photo isn't taken by him?

    He has replied to my PM and he has stated that all the photos inside are taken by him.
    I am very unhappy with his act.
    I also don't agree with those who talk about letting him off as he is just a kid who has not even gone to NS.For your information, one of the photos that he has stolen comes frm a 14year old boy.

    I'm assuming that he also knows about this thread? If so, we can then conclude that he isn't going to reply and his pm is his definitive response. So much for giving a chance to respond.

    He still insists they are his?

    What a low life. Scum, literally. I say we trash him everywhere he posts. I hereby christen him:

    I do not know if he has came across this thread.
    His message was sent to me, 20-03-2006, 1705hrs.
    Another PM has been sent to ask him to remove the photos.
    Thanks for the support of all CSers who have responded to the thread.

    Wah he is playing around with his words..

    Well if he continues to insist that the photos are taken by him, then some action must be made

    Still, it is better for him to clarify things here.

    ok, i'm trying to be nice of which obviously i failed to do so.
    personally, i've suffered from such acts of plagiarism before during schooling days. i can tell u that it is not a very nice feeling to see ur own art work being displayed prominently by the thief who claimed that its his own hardwork and all.

    this roti_prata seems to be from some big shot J.C, Raffles J.C?
    and he has the audacity to claimed that the fotos are his own works?

    can someone(the victim/s) go to his school and look him up or mr.winston hodge(principal) and state that this roti_prata boy has plagiarise and such?

    think can avoid a lawsuit la. he maybe just need a kick up the ar$e in the right direction.

    Was looking at this old thread in APAD (thanks, Hexlord)

    http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthrea...wpost&t=172435

    In it, he is claiming the cockpit shot to be his... at that point in time, I questioned his supposed flight route and the actual aircraft heading in the photo. He brushed it off with some excuse abt military airbases and I let it go at that. I should've known though.... he claimed the shot was taken by a 300 f/2.8...

    It's obvious that he is an outright cheat. Airliners.net has been informed.

    I think you might want to consider making an offer to remove the images with a period of time, if still doesn't, then go to the police and make a report.

    All my avatars are of pictures taken by me.
    I had only once used a pic that isn't my work. I just asked the owner and he agreed. That was in another forum.
