    Tell me.

    I was literally leeched both effort, time and my sleep. Turned around and stabbed so deep that I'd almost lost everything - my confidence & inspiration. Ppl here who know me personally would know what had happened.

    But it happened 2yrs ago. If firearms are legal, I would be splashed on page 1 of ST long ago.

    Yes, since the IT show 2006 got models complained to me about HWZ... (she thought I was the one posting) - The so-called "IT show pagent" case...

    I can't be surfing all the forums hunting down the leeches also... But at least those in CS I can hammer them straight in their threads...

    hence, to the general public out there, they wont be particular with copyrights as much as we does.

    hence, look at it the other way, as long as the people who copied your images isn't using it for commericial purposes, it's a compliment, isn't it? =)
    Oh my... thanks, but I don't need these kinda free advertisments...

    Hmm, how bout kope for organising shoots???That's indeed commericial purposes...

    Its good to have an account in the other forum too. I was a HWZ and Vr-zone member before I came here. At least, you get to limit the remarks given. Notice the fan clubs for models there?

    It is no coincidence that usually those photos appearing at HWZ, Sammy, etc.... belong to the same shooters .... this is due to their style of shooting and their choice of models ....
    Is is ridiculous to leech photos from shooters, like Ejunlow, DP, berryhappy, etc....
    always the Light, .... always.
