Say you have your own personal photo sharing site but you take photos from other photogs and pass it off as you own. I wont say which cser is doing this but let's say he taking stuff we posted to share with others and puting them on his own site. :think: What's your say?

I don't think I care. Being a kid has no special privileges. The parents pay on his behalf then.

Probably it's better to highlight to him that there are ethics even in photography. If he does not listen, list his name and site here so he will be pressured to stop doing so.

Basic principles of cheating/copying & knowing right from wrong are learnt in primary school already. Find it difficult use age as a shield to hide behind.

Just my 2 cents.

I guess this whoever is does know about copyright issues. Perhaps he knew that he would get into trouble if he posts the photo on his own gallery (note that its already against A.net regulations even with the copyright tag) with the famous tag at the bottom. Maybe he had cropped out and hoped that he would be able to show them off as his own pix. If you had noticed from his 'excellent' gallery on Flickr, almost all of the landscape shots had the camera model written besides the photo while those photos that look somewhat familiar do not (one uses a D70/D200, the other a 20D for the real photogs).

Roti_prata, if you happen to read this, let this be a warning to you.
Please apologize for plagarizing the photos.This is not an honourable act.
I would like to hear your side of the story, but you still plagarized.No point denying it.
