Some Stolen Photos...maybe Yours Too?

Sun Jun 15, 2003 1:05 pm

http://www.airlinepictures.net/

Some smart guy by the name of "mystere" stole one of my SXM shots (along with another one from Chris Kilroy). I haven't had time to go through the whole site, but I would not be suprised if there were more on there. Just a heads up.

I can smell a lawsuit when NWA sees he is taking credit for their photography.

hmm, also photos from Airbus and Boeing websites...
Recognised some mousemats I've seen for sale in legitimate stores.

None of mine though.

Hey, this guy's been around a bit: Korean MD11's, almost the whole F-117A fleet, as well as air to air shots of Spad XVII's. He must be a time traveller.

Perhaps he'll get some cool shots when he appears in court too......

I think the biggest laugh is the Beechcraft Starship NC6 which he has ripped off from noted American aviation photographer Paul Bowens. It looks like he has taken a thumbnail and resized it larger. Talk about jaggies.

I only hope the hadcuffs hurt when they bust this guy.

So has someone contacted the owner of the website?
Or is "he" the owner of the web-site.

I want to see Joe's bikini photo !!
............wait a minute, I don't want to see Joe in a bikini, just
the shot mentioned above !!  Smile

I am also a member of AirlineCrew.net and will send a message to him and see what he has to say. He also has about 50 photos on AirlinePictures.net so we may be able to get those photos removed.

Justin;

during the last days we had several complaints.

We took the following actions:

1. We contacted our top posters personally and informed them about our rules
2. we removed several photo's
3. we did sent an email to all of our users and urged them to remove photo's
they don't own (see attached text)

During the next period, we will monitor the site closely and act immediately if
necessary.


I'll be watching closely as well too.....

From the moderators of AirlinePictures.net they sent out an email stating emphaticcaly that they will not tolerate any stolen photos and that drastic measures will be taken including deletion of files that the poster has.

Ok, so a few are gone, but there are still a few dozen from a.net on there....I think tomorrow I'll write him a long email and point out all the photos that were stolen.
