Default The nerve of some people - blatant theft.

Check this video clip folks- I recognize the photos- however I don't recognize the photographer.
Many of the shots are Adam Burton's and I recognize some others as being from TE.
YouTube Link

Anyone else recognize their photos?

Thanks Dan,

What a phoney.

He stole a few of my photos and posted them on his website, I was alerted by a couple of TE members back in February, I was travelling at the time and after I returned, they were "cleansed" from his website, thanks to those members no doubt.

Yes, I bet most of those photos are stolen. Nearly getting eaten by "ants" my a$$. What a disgrace. This whole clip makes me sick, not just the theft of photos but the rhetoric of the so-called "journalistic report". This is the most repugnant lifeform conservative republicans can possibly sink to, oh yes, I think these are the same type of folks who enlightened us with "Swiftboat veterans for the truth", nuclear death by Saddam in 45 minutes, etc etc. They lie, they steal, they cheat, they dupe, yet America falls for it hook, line and sinker.

Disgusting.....

Hey Dan, any jobs vacant for a public works engineer in Vancouver or Montreal??. I'm kinda serious. Singapore's too hot for me though :-).

if you make a complaint with the necessairy links, YouTube removes the video immediatly, they are quite serious about theft of copyrights !

the video will still exist though, scandalising this video in public on YouTube could remove the prove for eventual persecutions, liked in the US ...

A photo-site who would defend the rights of their clients legally will put many others out of the market !

I went to his website, hoping to find some of the photos he "took" from TE. I wanted to see if he was selling them, and how big a print he could make out of an 800-pixel image. But no such luck. All I saw was a very ordinary gallery.

Here's another interesting link about "taking" photos.

I wonder if someone were to write to KKTV, whether they would air a correction of the story.

Well spotted, Dan! I really think it would be worth in this case to follow up with KKTV. The story is simply to blatantly revolting and it shouldn't be all that difficult to sort out, if the rightful copyright owners decide to make a move.

Guess this just shows how careful we have to be with our photos...
