Site found breaching copyrights

Not sure how many of you guys publish your photos/art on the net and/or on stock sites, but this link may be worth a check through.
http://wallpapers.gworld.cz/
I've just found my photos being offered as downloadable wallpapers without my permission. They were ripped off the sxc site by the owner of gworld.cz, and he has now been sent a legal notice requesting they be removed. He will also be receiving a bill for the 622 unauthorised reproductions he has made of my photo to date

What the Duck is an online comic strip. Viewers are welcome to link, post, copy/paste, or save the strips to their own sites, blogs, forums, newsletters, etc.

Good luck, Chris!

I saw one here that I haven't seen in years! It's amazing that some people think that they'd get away with this.
