I've emailed the site asking for the pics to be removed (just in case no-one else has yet done so)

Chris.

William,

Thank you very much for the heads-up!!!

Such a rotten behaviour by this idiot!!!
Unfortunately Jan is out on a photo assignment at the moment and won't be able to act until he's back.
But, be so sure...he will!

All the best,

Why shouldn't we write some nasty lines in the guestbook or the forum and point out to all visitors that they've been stolen and Simon Chandler is a nasty idiot?

LOL. I've been trying to find the cockpit shot in the database, but no luck...

Of course, I should have looked at the pic, not at the 'info' given by the 'photographer'.

Ever seen an A320 with four power throttles ?  Laugh out loud

OK, guys. Even though I don't have any pictures myself on Airliners.net (yet  Smile/happy/getting dizzy ), this is just one big disgrace! This guy deserves to be punished. Have you read the critiques he has been getting on these pictures: 'oh, wonderful. How did you do this? amazing' and stuff like that GRGRGR...

Now I'm going to add some nice comment  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Can anybody describe the pictures from Simon Chandler ? - as i am unable to access the photsig site from my work system. I have several shots on there from anet so am hoping people are not getting us confused.

Wow, comments are beginning to storm over those pics...

Something I will never understand. I love to be praised for my work.

This guy will get neither of those : he's being praised (well, he's *been* praised, that has just stopped !) for some other people work. How unfulfilling can that be ?

It's not even as he was paid for those shots, as they are for free on that site...

It appears to me that some 'James Clives' from LA has been giving that guy some nasty critiques as well  Smile/happy/getting dizzy  Smile/happy/getting dizzy  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

He should be arrested for this sort of fraud!

Not to worry Paul, I've seen your pics there and also Simon Chandlers - they are clearly different portfolios and I don't believe any of yours are compromised - however, it might be worth checking your critiques to make sure no one has assumed your shots were also ripped of A.net !

Cheers,

Well, I put in my .02 on all 5 pics.

I suggest that everyone contact the administrators and or web master to not only remove these photos but Simon as well. While none of these were my pics, I have had my share stolen in the past and in one case someone even profited from it (non-aviation) so this blatant theivery should be called to the carpet and not tolerated.

I certainly hope that Johan will contact the administrators and lay down the law.

I don't think the photos should be removed.

He wanted praise and fame ? Well, let him as fame.
And shame. He does not deserve oblivion right now.

Skihigh2002,...
Would you like it if YOUR pic was stolen into another website and the stealer CLAIMS THE PIC AS HIS?!?...
it dosent really matter if the person makes money out of it or not... the person who will put it on his site will have to ask permission.. and NOT claim that they are his pics... why do you think Airliners.net has copyright bars?
The biggest mistake made by most human beings: Listening to only half, understanding just a quarter and telling double.

Chris Carnett (aka Skihigh2002),
Stop embarassing the 16-20 year olds that actually HAVE a brain.

You obviously have no idea what you are talking about whatsoever. If anyone is acting like an idiot, it is you.

Here's some reading for you to occupy your time in between making immature posts on A.net and watching Elimidate.

Yup, it seems the pictures have been deleted...Another victory for 'good conduct and behaviour'...

A little applause for yourselves, ladies and gentlemen and especially for WillL who brought this up in the first place!

I am sick of my photos being stolen. I admit I enjoy trying to make some MONEY (there I said it) off of some of my hard EARNED work. Anybody that says "how can you get upset with someone who likes your photo good enough to use it somewhere as long as they give a photo credit. BULLSHIT! It is like someone stealing money out of a cash register.

I just want to step in here again and say a BIG THANK YOU!

Thank you everybody for looking out for A.net shots on other websites.
And for acting when someone like Simon has stolen our shots.

There was no shots of mine this time, but that's not the point.
I'm just happy that A.net has such a strong community that looks out for eachother's rights.
We all know we deserve the credit for our work. And it's wonderful to see the power we have when we work together like in this case.

Keep it up!

ok, now....keep shooting those great shots that makes me come here everyday....

It appears there are still shots on there from Craig Murray, Tony Rogers, Teo Photo and Edward Pascuzzi to name a few.

The link to them was listed above:

I found a photo of a AF747 on final for st marteen (the dutch Antilles), that exists in "our" database. Am not sure if it was stolen as well. The photographer calls himself "Gipsy.." or something like that.

Here is the photo. Maybe anyone of you, or the photographer himself can verify if it's been stolen or not.

The "experts" on that site that made comments on that photo says that it's a fake and a photoshop made photo. Allow me to laugh!!! Big grin

My excuses!
