Hi,

it's a while since the last journal. Not everything is fine but that is another story.

I found two facebook sites which contains a lot of stolen photos including my own and a lot from other people I know here on dA or in real life. I already sent some messages to some people to inform them. One site has sometimes but not everytime a link to the copyright owner which is fine but the other one is worse. I asked to get my photos removed and two friends joined writing that the photos were stolen and we were all blocked. I thought I could inform you about the thieves and maybe you can talk to them as well.


The first site with lots of stolen photos and also from where I got blocked for asking to get my photos removed: www.facebook.com/pages/Beauty-…
Please have a look if your works are stolen as well and maybe tell others about it. And I would be glad for your support if you can get the creator of that page to remove the stolen photos.


And the other one (which at least gives credit in some posts but still not for every photo): www.facebook.com/pages/Love-An…


Thanks for reading so far.

www.facebook.com/help/www/4002… This should be the easiest way to get it taken down. I'd do it, but they have nothing of mine and you need to report as a copyright holder. :)

Thank you. Well I think I will do that. It just annoying that people don't understand that photos and other images belong to someone.

Good luck. It really annoys me too - some people have no respect...

Thanks but that person is going on with uploading some of my photos and fb just removes the images I report as if they don't want to shut down a page full of stolen work.

How bad. I hope you get them removed. The bad thing is facebook lets them continue too long before shutting the page down :( The do only something if a lot people report but it doesn't look as if many have a look for their photos there.

If the page owner is not cooperative you can report copyright infringement to Facebook -- www.facebook.com/help/40028785…

I hate those kind of people! Fly killing
When I was young I didn´t know either anything about copyright and that it is actually
real crime if you spread pictures which don´t belong to you.
But I bet they´re no kids anymore and they´re doing it on purpose. Otherwise they would have
deleted them after they got told so. Like I was shocked back then when I heard about that and
never touched someone else pics again...
You don´t have to beg them to delete your pics though. You can sue them for arttheft and you will
actually have very good chances, especially because there are a lot of other artists who
would support your back.

I don't like them either. I think a lot people had that time when they didn't know but that should end if they're told that it isn't right. To sue them, I need money first to pay the lawyer..
