    hehe... i've a feeling someone out there will be making "Wanted: Dead or Alive" posters of our prata boy soon....

    if he has 2-bits of intelligence, he better apologise to all those he leached on airliner.net... and fast. pretty dumb of him (for a student from a premier school) to leached other people's pics from a well-known international forum... and then post them on an equally well-known, well-visited photo sharing site... doh...

    Have a look at the photos.. some are taken using a D70s (exif data at Flickr).

    Compare those with the other non-Exif pics..

    Some pics are stolen, not all.

    The standard and 'feel' of the shots are so different.

    No this is not ethical. If he continue to do this... I'm sure he will really be selling prata to pay off the fines....

    Of all the airliner photos, only this one has the A.net watermark in the photo;
    http://www.flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne...1159909&size=o
    Anyone here knows JKSC?

    To me, if he knows that he has to remove the watermark, it means that he knows that he is leeching the photos, infringing copyright laws

It just speaks of a certain biasness, don't you think?
    I don't blame you for noticing it.

    I know leeching is a universal problem but I don't see the need to name countries where I have observed it happening. It's also because I know it's a widespread problem that I also have fair reasons to suspect (but can't provide solid quantitative proof because I'm not doing a study/survey) that it tends to happen a lot in S'pore. (Just to let you know, I could be subconsciously comparing with western countries where I'm also participating/observing in their forums.)

    It's S'poreans who created those 2 girlie websites which persistently 24/7/365 display leeched photos to their monetary gain. In case, you missed the point, they display other people's works without permission and draw huge visitorship to earn money. Where's the ethics in that? I have had a photographer-friend whose works had been leeched and displayed there but the webmaster totally ignored his request to remove images. That incident, which my friend eventually let go, due to the lack of ability in seeking legal action, slapped me in the face with the brutal reality that not every photographer has the means to sue.

    Talking about sueing is cheap. (My words may sound harsh, but reality is just as harsh, and I'm only presenting it in all honesty, not because I have an itchy backside to become an unpopular figure here.)

    Leeching (theft of intellectual property or copyright infringement) is shamefully rampant in Asia (including S'pore). The western world knows it, we Asians don't want to admit it. It says alot about us. The truth hurts (yea, we often don't wanna hear 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.
    I assure you that I'm not only on S'pore-based ClubSnap, and I have also observed this trend in foreign-based forums to use avatars created by others. In my opinon, it's still leeching or abuse. It becomes crystal-clear if I were to take someone else's original image/illustration/emoticon and use it as my avatar.

    Chill out everyone... I didn't ask anyone to admit whether their avatars were their own work. There's no need to admit/confess to anything. Shhh...
