I saw someone post this recently on Facebook, someone appears to be making a nice little collection of other folks images - also appears copyright info etc is being removed. I'm sure a few of our members may recognise a few shots.

 

Not really sure what we can do about it though.

I think you are right I recognise this shot http://igviewer.com/...1778964_9432083 as a photo that Alex Mustard took in the Bahamas in 2008

And I do believe that this shot ( http://igviewer.com/...5969248_9432083 ) is Uwe Schmolke's winning shot from the recent Beneath the Sea imaging contest.

I recognized quite some of my Images on this site.

 

Actually the link to the Image you've mentioned above does not work, but creates an error message.

So he/she might follow this conversation already and started to act.

 

Else I don't know how to act.

 

Many thanks for Information anyhow.

A couple of the images are mine!  Anyone know who the SOB is?

He/she has taken down Alex Mustard's shark photo but there are certainly more that I recognise, sadly none of mine!

My images seems to be deleted (at least I can't find them any more).

 

Most likely he/she has been informed or is reading in here or FB (where the Topic is discussed as well.

Right now 125 Images are left on the Webpage. When I've checked last time it has been 200+.

 

So he/she is deleting quite some Images already.

 

Let's see, what's remain left (most likely none).

This is an example of image theft. Using someone else’s image or work without giving them any  credit is a kind of scraping which happens on web every now and then. However, removing copyright is a crime and the one doing so can be punished for the same. There are many ways to fight or report these type of digital data theft:

 

·  The webmaster of the scraper site can be contacted and asked to either remove the copied data or to give credit to original publisher.

·  DMCA banner should be displayed on the site in order to ward off scrapers.

·  The owner can file a legal complaint against the one who is stealing data.

·  One can even report to Google about the pirate site.

 

It is always wise to protect your website/image/blog/business site/database from such web pirates using different spam prevention tools, restricting downloads, restricting user access, or by using a constant monitoring service such as ScrapeSentry, Scrapedefender etc. With the help of these methods you can easily protect you website from hacking, piracy and spam.
