Finally, there is a website that collects information about the crooked dealings of the Cyber Diver News Network (CDNN). Check out divepoll.com to see the truth about CDNN. Excerpt from DivePoll:
Cyber Diver News Network is a known hate website that claims to deliver “world scuba news worth knowing”. In truth is they are copyright infringers, which means they literally steal other’s material without the author’s permission. Many authors and artists have been violated. CDNN steals images from photographer websites, removes the copyright notices, and uses them for headlines in their news articles.
Note that DivePoll lists Cuan Law and Lammer Law as sponsors of CDNN. This is incorrect. Cuan Law and Lammer Law’s management have informed me that they have not given money to CDNN for at least five years:
We did subscribe when they first started up not knowing then what a problem they would become. We have repeatedly asked them to remove our “sponsorship” but get no reply and no action. We have not been able to find any way of reaching them other than by email, which is not answered.
