Exclamation Stolen photos - foto rubate

Dear friends,
this forum would like to inform you that there is a site that steals our photos: http://explore-the-earth.tumblr.com/

The owner of this site has justified yourself by saying that the pictures published are not his, but by law I believe that before publishing a photograph does not own, should make the same request to the owner.

I invite you to check whether if one of the many photos, are those yours.
I had found a photo of our TE friend (jpgmn), from Portugal and is among those of the Home Page.

The photo of our friend is here: http://it.trekearth.com/gallery/Euro...oto1111590.htm

You can see photo stolen, here: http://explore-the-earth.tumblr.com/tagged/portugal
__________________________________________

Cari amici,
con questo forum desidero informarvi che c'θ un sito che si appropria delle nostre foto.
http://explore-the-earth.tumblr.com/

Il proprietario di tale sito si giustifica dicendo che le foto pubblicate non sono sue, ma per legge io credo che prima di pubblicare una foto non propria, bisognerebbe farne richiesta al proprietario stesso.

Vi invito pertanto di controllare se tra le tante foto, ci sono anche quelle vostre.

Una di queste l'ho trovata io ed θ tra quelle dell'Home Page nella pagina dedicata al Portogallo.

La foto appartiene al nostro amico: "jpgmn".

La foto del nostro amico θ questa: http://it.trekearth.com/gallery/Euro...oto1111590.htm

Potete vedere la foto rubata, qui: http://explore-the-earth.tumblr.com/tagged/portugal

See you soon!
Francio

Default Alert!

Hello Francio - I posted the same alert on 15 May under feedback and support, and have a whole thread running about copyright etc under the topic Pinterest. Explore the Earth is just one more site where our images are being displayed without permission or credits. It is my opinion that until there is a groundswell of complaint from TE members the TE management will not do anything to protect us. TE is a business and the more people that walk over the front step the more revenue they collect. Tumblr is another of the link buttons that we now have under the shots we post. TE is clear in its copyright terms but who bothers with them when the pinning links are so clearly displayed. I am considering leaving TE but at the moment wait for Admin and Management to come up with some positive ways in which to help us with this issue.

I'm glad that you seem to be concerned too..... Let's try and get this sorted out!

Rosemary

Thumbs up A wrong policy!

Dear Rosemary,
thanks for your reply.
I noticed that the owner of the site "incriminated" has made ​​sure that anyone who sees a photo, can also know from which site has been taken.
In fact, clicking on the picture, is possible open the site where is the original photo.

This action does not yet justify the fact that he takes possession of our work.
I find it very wrong this policy.

Best Regards!
Francio

Default I Confirm

Hi all
Many pictures from Trekearth and Flickr were picked into this site
Here is the French section

http://explore-the-earth.tumblr.com/tagged/france

But the site owner says that he is not the owner of all the pictures you can ask him to remove it
http://explore-the-earth.tumblr.com/ask

Thumbs down Open House

Didi - Yes the owner of the explore the earth site does say we can ask to have a photograph removed but what I want to know is why he doesn't do so when he is asked? I have asked and no response! I also wonder how people would feel if a thief came into out house, took something which did not belong to them and then left a message in an obscure place letting us know that he would give it back if we asked! To me this is just wrong. There is another site with my photographs on it, the owner says the same thing. No change though when I requested my photographs be removed. http://africamemorias.blogspot.com/2...e-namibia.html

Post Delete Photo

Hello Didi,
doing so, however, won the thief who still remains in possession of the photos that are not his.

Default Remove Photo

I think that explore-the-earth.tumblr.com should be done to close as it uses photos stolen.
I will never blot out my photos on TE. I posted my photos to share and not to delete, even if they were to have been stolen.
If anything should make delete the site which contains our photos stolen.

Best Regards!
Francesco

Default I agree....

it doesn't make mush sense to remove our photos that explore the earth linked to. After all we are not in the wrong here. I have written to them today to ask them to remove about 20 of my shots. I had to detail each one by file name. As of this moment they are still there.
