Facebook Page Using A.net Photos Improperly

There is a Facebook group that has posted A.net photos improperly on their page trying to pass them off as their photos. Some photos still have the A.net watermark visible, but in all cases, the copyright bar has been cropped out. I know that myself and a few other A.net crew members have reported this page to Facebook, but the photos and the page still remain. I joined the group a few months back and posted that they were improperly posting the photos from here and that they were violating the terms the site established for use of the photos. The person behind the page deleted my comments and has blocked me from being able post. So at this point, I think that the photographers whose photos are involved need to alert Facebook to this user's misuse of their photos and submit Claims of Intellectual Property Infringement as well as report the page since Facebook's policy only allows the copyright holder or their authorized agent of the copyright holder to submit IP claims.

Quoting JakTrax (Reply 3):

Looks like Facebook did the right thing and took the page down, and quickly too. Good on them.
