Is This Flickr Account Stealing A.net Photos?

Sun Jan 15, 2012 4:44 pm

Because I see a lot of different names under the copyrights on some of them...

Sorry if this has already been brought to people's attention.

More than likely they are doing like so many others have done before and posted photos from the database on other sites in violation of the photo usage requirements of this site.

The only way to address this with Flickr is to have the photographers whose works have been uploaded under this users' account report them. I tried to report this user and was told that the photographers will have to report them.

We could leave comments below the pictures "Hey, why are you stealing photos?".
Slower traffic, keep right

I've tried that tact in the past, it doesn't work, as they can just delete the comment and block you. Shaming them doesn't seem to work since they have options to make such posts (and those posting such comments) disappear. At the end of the day, it's the photographers themselves that have to make the complaint.

Just a thought I had as I took a look at this site, could we simply just pm those photographers who's work has been stolen to send Flickr a message as mentioned above.

I sent him a message through flickr the other day. He replied earlier and has taken them down.

In violation of flickr's TOS as well.

Anyway, no harm done. At least he didn't crop out the copyright and try to pass them off as his own.
