Hi Folks,

while doing some google searches on some of my own images and came across this site with hordes of images clearly taken without permission or even
attribution. Some of them were mine and there where many others that I am familiar with taken by other UW Photgraphers. I could not find any contact info
on the site so a "Please Explain" email may be problematic.

Cheers,
Jim.

Its Chinese mate.....so good luck...

From Google translate...



The blue Zoology (China Zoological science Network) was founded on May 1, 2002, produced by individuals-for-profit public interest science sites. The site the subject as "universal zoological knowledge, improve animal protection awareness, and hope for the public, especially zoology enthusiasts a zoological reference exchange platform.

  In 2007, due to the large amount of information loss of data, the blue zoology forced to close. In the meantime, received greetings, blue zoology very concerned about and look forward to some friends via Email. This support, flattered, grateful for endless also feel take more time to redo the blue zoology, zoological science career in China and then do our cotton force.

  Finally, on February 8, 2010, after several years of planning, the blue zoology and again met.New layout, detailed scientific classification, richer content, I believe that can provide an unprecedented space for new and old friends. So that everyone in the harvest of knowledge at the same time, enjoy the biosphere of infinite magnificent!

Thanks John you're a more patient sleuth than I. The site is really badly laid out and I gave up on wading through it after 1/4 an hour.

Forgive my innocence but are international copyright laws enforceable in China? Is there an agency in China one could refer this to?
I'll certainly send the person behind the site an email but doubtful of response/action.

Cheers,
Jim.

Jim,

Google translate works a dream and whois.com gave the contact details....but you are right the website is pretty pathetic and it would not surprise me if it is a high school project....

Hope you resolve this....

Cheers,
John

Email there via this page. Just click this link via some translation site:

Just make sure you have BIG watermarks for all photos online. It's distracting but worthwhile!

Thanks Drew for the link, I'm not very confident a clear message will get though using Google or any of the other on-line translaters. It hasn't
served me very well in the past.

As for big watermarks I know its the only effective protection against this kind of use but am very resistant to go down that path.

Anyone know of any agency or authority in China I might refer this matter to?


Cheers,
Jim.


PS- LOL. Well after running my email through Google and Babel and re-translating back to check(bad idea I know!), I now know
the origins of that venerable language Manglish, some of the results had me in stitches. And I thought my English was bad Posted Image
Message sent, it will be interesting what sort of response I get if any.

BTW this is the page with some of my shots- http://www.blueanima...dongwu/xiao.htm

Hmmmm. Thanks Jim and Google Images, now I'm getting all riled up finding the sites using my images un accredited.

I'm thinking about making up a WEBPAGE OF SHAME listing all such websites. Probably wont change anything but might make me feel better. Ha!
