Default Re: Another thief of our photos!

You must be joking of course!

Photograph as music, a movie is copyrighted material by it's owner! I think you may not read the Terms of Service ( http://www.trekearth.com/terms.php ). Read it, especially at this number:

16. By posting to TrekEarth, you authorize TrekEarth, at its discretion, to act on behalf of the copyright holder in case of infringement by other sites.

The photographs here are copyrighted. NO ONE can use them for any reason without the permission of the owner. Trekearth it's not a public domain gallery. It holds copyrighted material.

That's why RCA and the big film and discography companies are chasing the pirates. For the copyright.

So, be serious and read the Term of Service before you use this site...

You've been very naive, Terms of Service say that "By posting to TrekEarth, you authorize TrekEarth, at its discretion, to act on behalf of the copyright holder in case of infringement by other sites", so what? Let me know when u won this battle, but I'm pretty sure that u can do nothing to anyone using your COPYRIGHTED PHOTOGRAPHS!

I totally agree with atlantida!
When u post something on the net, it's very hard to keep it yours, someone can use your property without your knowing. If u don't want anybody to use your photograps, than keep them only in your computer.
Regards Atlantida.

Ok if you want to make a serious convertation (I don't think so but it worths to try), tell where it says, that the photo where are posted to Internet are FREE OF COPYRIGHT!

Another thing. Go to www.istockphoto.com and send them a mail which said: "Please give free all the photo you have at your site because are not COPYRIGHTED"! :)

Before move your fingers and writing silly things, read carefully about the copyrighted material. According your logic, the songs where are into a CD and you can listen the from radio, as PUBLIC DOMAIN! Ah?

I think that at your country you don't have copyright laws ... That's why only 2 members of the thousands where are here telling all these... Nice try...

Of course you have the copyright. If someone used your material without your permission you can send them a mail to remove it. You have the completely right for this.

Default WRONG!

If somebody is using my pictures for a non commercial use I don't care at all but when a website, magazine, tv is stealing my pictures I do care because they earn money on my back and this is unacceptable!

For some of us it is work not a hooby! and by stealing our work they steal our bread!

NO! Uploading photos on the internet does not mean that they are free of use!
