First time on the Forum.......
If Airplanepics sold to him he might well have his address. If anyone out there is CERTAIN, preferrably a UK member, that one of their photos is being sold, I will buy it, get his address, and action could then be taken for a breach of copyright. It would be better if he had others from the same photographer for sale too. Vir380, over to you...............
A threatening letter from a lawyer (I will fix that - a friend is a copyright lawyer) might make him think twice about doing it again.
The e-bay name of Tyne757 suggests the North of England.
Looks like he makes a living stealing from others !

Give me the item nos of a few of yours and I'll buy one and take it from there.
If I'm going to spend my hard earned money, make sure it is a good one (LOL)
I will shortly be retiring after 30 years as a Cop so he should be easy meat !!!
Think he's got one of mine too ....that makes it personal !

From what I can see, he hasn't taken any of my photos, but I did not look properly. He has over 3000 photos on there!

I would be very careful about giving out this guy's address if you have it. Especially if he hasn't directly STOLEN any of your pics. The best way to deal with him is by reporting it directly to ebay as he is selling STOLEN images.

I do not see any of my photos, but I gave up after a while. I also think the best thing to do right now is simply report it to eBay, they will have the ultimate control over what happens on their site.

Has a mail back from the guy , very nice about it ... looks like he's been stung along with the rest of us as he's taken all the offending postcards off sale.

it seems that some company in the Czech Republic is making them !

so we now need to look into this company " top card "

im on it

Thanks for the heads up guys. That postcard is legit, I was compensated for them using it and if it ends up for sale that is something I expected.

Good looking out Justin, thanks
