Default oliviermonge - star trails in the Namib - stole my shot

This guy stole one of my photos and posting it as his own ... by the look of his gallery he probably stole them all .

Looks like he took his favourite shots from around the world and posted them

To be frank, I think you should be reporting him to admin, if he does not delete them by himself. Did you try to contact him ?

Send an email to adam@trekearth.com or click on the "Report a Violation" on the photo posted by Olivier Monge.

I think you could try this email (found in the FAQ) questions@trekearth.com

Also, when you are on the pic itself, on the left hand side (top) there is a link where you can report a problem.

Hope this helps.

Write to member "Adam Silverman" he used to own the site. If he's no longer the right man, I'm sure he'll know who to relay the message to.

I've just "Googled" Olivier Monge and that name appears LOTS and many of the hits are photographic sites.

Now, I'm not sure how common the name is, if it's the same guy or if there's more than one photographer with that name. However, if he did this to me, I would find other sites he posts on and check to see if he's posted any of the photos there.

I know there's very little that can be done "officially" other than to insist that any stolen photos are removed or the correct author is credited with having taken the shots.

That said, if I was 100% certain the shots were mine and I knew who'd done it, I would do everything in my power to nail him very obviously in the eyes of his peers on every website I could find him linked to.

If you are correct, and I am not doubting your word for a minute, we must do everything we can to stamp out this despicable behaviour and protect our ownership rights - especially if financial gain is being made out of our efforts.

Good luck and please report how you get on.

Regards, Paul.

Hi Don,
Je suis ravi de constater que vous êtes au courant de la situation. C'est Bibiweb qui m'a prévenu- j'avais été féliciter ce sieur oliviermonge qui nous prenait tous pour des imbéciles. T.E. l'a viré, je dis bravo - nous devons tous être vigileants - regards -
