Re: Omfg

no don't think it's that they don't care. they just have to investigate it a little otherwise you could just claim all your competitors were frauds and have their profiles removed. it might take a little while but do what you need to and you'll have them shut down...

there's no way they could verify that every upload is a legitimately copyrighted image...

I don't know... it's why they call them self MODS -- If I have an account to be approved and it' a girl charging U$D50 and she works for DIOR and MAC I'd get a bit suspicious ¬¬

The MAC adds COME ON!!! Moderation on that site SUCKS

Re: Omfg

It looks worse than it is - and that's probably whats intended, its just a "we cant be arsed to do anything" standard legal thing. A translation of their requirements … as far as I can see…
1 A written letter clearly stating that you are the 'creator' of the images, and that those images have been directly taken from you AND the Photographers.

A Your signature

B A list of exactly which images on the site that 'High-end anonymous Retouching, Female' is claiming are hers - the ones that you did. You can't copyright them - that's for the photographer, THEY will have copyright

C As above, and a link to the material that you want them to take down "or access to which is to be disabled"

D Your written statement that the photographer who owns copyright, does not authorize the use of those images by 'Retouching, Female" - and needs to be signed.

E A statement of accuracy - just means "…*the information contained in this letter is complete and accurate"
A threat with legal action (advice, doesn't necessarily have to be followed up of course) - that's the best you can do.

OMG OMG OMG

How can we stop this? I HATE MM and i don't have an account there because I think it's a very amateur site and most mods are jerks. But I think I should create one, just to let them know about this!!!!

Wonder how many of my images are out there?????
