    It seems that he's been helping himself to the buffet of photographs over here?

    There's even a link to clubsnap at the bottom of his webpage. Some cheek.

    1. A civil suit is where A sues B to obtain damages, ie $$$ or other civil remedies such as an injunction.

    2. A criminal suit in a non-seizable offence is where you file a Magistrate's Complaint and and prosecute the accused yourself.

    Hence, what you describe is not a civil suit. It is a criminal complaint.

    I believe as with JOHO's case, ALbert Chua didn't successfully "sue" - he sent letters and got a private settlement. Correct me if I'm wrong.

And it's unwise to take things into your own hands, you could yourselves in trouble if you harass him.

    There is a screen shot of this page belongs to ritexposure.
    This weekend, this photographer has a assignment with bobbie and valerie.
    Ritexposure has registered with acra using a housse in Punggol.

    If Rtiexposure registered address is in punggol and had a wedding assignment with bobbie and valerie in Cairnhill Methodist Church, I believe evidence is sufficent to accuse him already.

    Hello CS bros,I'm the partner of Le Photographe and I am as surprised as you all are regarding this whole matter..I am still a newbie and never will I ever think that someone might wanna use my images.

    But I'm sure that you guys have been in this line for ages and your images are definitely worth more than mine..

    The guy,Joe,is definitely daring and needless to say,STUPID,for violating our rights..I have checked it out with a lawyer and some investigation officers(my job permits me to do so,hehe)with regards to this whole thing.

    Apparently,copyright issue where images are concerned is very sensitive in today's context.This guy has deleted his multiply account so I really have no idea which of my images he has utilised to secure deals and agreements..

    I have even gone to the extent of calling up Cairnhill Methodist Church (As mentioned by our bro Blurrblurr) but the staff there confirmed that there is no wedding for any Bobbie and Valerie coming up soon..

    As such,one of my Policeman bro suggests that I make a report but the matter will end at that as far as the Police are concerened..And the lawyer friend that I consulted also agreed that it will take time and loads of evidence to get this guy.

    However,I am not taking the chance and I will lodge the report.The next action from me depends if whether this punk is still utilising my images.

    Regards.

    What are you talking about? The "amount" as you put it has nothing to do with whether an action is a civil or criminal matter.

    Dear all,

    I am the "Joe" that has caused all these mess. I admit that it is my doing which has resulted in all these unhappiness.I am an 18 year old guy and photography is my hobby.I got introduced to multiply by my friend,who told me that there are people who wil be interested in looking for photographers in there.
    As such,I registered myself in there and I resorted to using some of your images as a way to promote myself. I did not think of the consequences of my actions and as a result,I have to close down my site and my dreams of becoming a professional photographer.
    I want you all to know that I am deeply remourseful and yes,I made up those upcoming weddings and events,in order to boost my profile.
    To all those professional n good photographers whose images I have used,please forgive me.I have not clinch any deal,trust me,using ur images.
    I am still schooling and I hope that you all will give me a chance to start afresh.I won't make the same mistakes again.

    I'm sorry, are you implying that you don't know what plagiarism means?

    We learnt that, and got punished for it, way back in primary school.... and you are still a student and you don't know that?

    Dear "Joe",

    In order to conclusively prove that you are the person who is the subject of the discussion here, kindly post identification of yourself and evidence that you are indeed the same person in the multiply.

    The last we want is a one-post troll who decides to have some fun at the expense of others.
