[closed] imagelogr

Local Studies, Swindon Central Library PRO says:

We just wanted to enquire about the site imagelogr, it seems to strip images from Flickr, regardless of copyright/cc status and present them for download without attribution.

www.imagelogr.com/

Have other found the same probelm? Most of our content is on this site, with no reciprocal link, no credit and no copyright/usage statement.

If they are being drawn from Flickr then you need to Report Abuse - at the bottom or any page.

If they have taken them and they are now hosted elsewhere flickr cannot help you. You need to file a Notice of Infringement to the host site.

This group
www.flickr.com/groups/nomorefreephotos/discuss/7215760552...
will give you lots of help, advice and guidance

The same here. It appears that the site is hosting medium sized images (500x333) and making them available for download from their site, no regard to copyright, no reciprocal link, no credit. Just guessing, but they must have crawled and downloaded the medium images from Flickr.

The site claims to be an image search index. A search on a specific tag that I use on all of my photos returned a result just over 10,000 photos. Looking at the first 20 pages returned and they definitely are my ARR images.

fyi Searching on one of the tags (SIOPMU) from your most recent upload showed up.

Hi there,

One issue is that all photos at that site are hosted at that site, not at Flickr. Which means that since the are the host, people will need to contact them about taking their photos down as Flickr has no control over that. The group linked earlier has resources that can be used, so I'll redirect the conversation to that group for now.

On second thought, it may be helpful to know where you're seeing your specific images on that site to help us make sure that they are not using an API key. So, if you have links, please do post them.

Here's a search on one of my unique tags, which returns a lot of ARR images that it shouldn't

Here's a link to the first page of results, searching on the tag 'p.csizmadia'. While I haven't figured out their sort, photos posted to Flickr within the last week are showing up

Hi, how about a link to one of your photos that you see there?

With a photo ID, we can more easily determine what is happening. :)

I have filed a notice of infringement with that site. Hundreds of my images were there, having been stripped from my Flickr pages and hosted on that site (no API use that I could see).

Every image returned with this search

was mine...

zyrcster says:

OK! Thanks folks, we've got what we need! No more links, please, I can only check so many items at a time in the logs. ;-)

So, what you all can do, since they are rehosting your photos, is to contact that site and their webhost provider and issue a take-down notice.

What we can do is to cut off their ability to scrape our site, so we'll be working on that end of things.

Thanks for your patience.

On a complete side-issue; 'Swindon Local Studies Collection' should probably look into the Flickr Commons project, and the guidelines about not uploading stuff you didn't create.

Also, please do not use this topic to post links about their site or their contact info, etc, as that starts to get a bit too fingerpointy - and can actually make situations worse, not better. Thanks!

So,

Since we seem to be heading down Lynch Mob Road, where the bridge is washed out, and we've taken action against the site but also informed members how to take their own action against the site, we'll now be closing this topic.

:)
