Default Stolen images on TE

I've read recently that some images have been stolen from TE and posted elsewhere and thast some have been entered - and won prizes in competitions. I have to tell you that some TE members themselves have posted stolen images on TE. I have seen the images on another website with which I am closely involved and on which they were posted previous to appearing on TE. These images were taken by a Pro who knows his rights and he is likely to follow up with a lawsuit. Anyone thinking of stealing images should think again. Anyone who has a stolen image in their gallery would be well advised to remove it.

Lucian ... I have also seen the stolen image and know the guy who took it personaly as does Vic, it would be inoproproite for us to name the TE member concerned ... the guy who took it is a superb photograher and a pro, also a very nice and helpfull person who is extrememly angry over this theft. He knows the identity of the TE member and will take the appropriate action to rectify this situation.

Unfortunately it is not gossip Henk. It is fact. In one particular case I know both the photographer who took and posted the original picture on another website and I have also had contact with the person who posted the same image on TE. That person was also a member of the other website. The image has been identified by 3 other members of TE as the very same image.
