it looks to me they are just some kids playing ... site designed by <a href="http://blog-themes.kalinawebdesigns.com/wordpress-themes/" target=_blank>Kalina webdesigns</a>, whose authors also design free Wordpress templates ... not to be submited for downloaded elsewhere (so they do understand the concept of copyright) - contact available only through a contact form (free script :) - on their Wordpress site.

they also publish photos from National geographic, but could very well be from TrekNature too

Yes, it doesn't look very professional! But they should at least ask for permission, which almost nobody would have given for free ;D But at first i got kind of shocked to see all these pictures from TE, thanks to vesalius who found the website! I think they have to find other photo source!

Default Treknature, post in the forum please :)

If someone is a member on Treknature also, could he/she post in the Forum there?
Maybe members that are more active there then here do not know what is going on, and they should look into this also.
Thanks for your help teodora!

too soft, Laurent!

All with you on this. Threatening action is definitely what to start with, since they did not asl permission. I found some pix of mine on sites, but with my name and most often "blue" link to the TE page, and they were only blogs, not commercial sites. No problem with that, when it's done within reason. Not the case here.

Hi Laurent,

I took a look at this site. On first sight I saw no pictures of mines. Maybe someone else found one that belongs to me ? Please tell me, if you did.
Anyway, something must be found that theft of our shots should be stopped.
Maybe some among us will think or say : please stop these "stolen pictures" items on this forum... but no ! It's important to mention it again and again.

Luc.

I had found some of my pictures before, on blog type of sites, but i never brought it up on the forum... this one is different in the sense that so many pictures are there and from many members...
Sorry for those who are bored with stolen photos threads, but i had to bring it up...
