stealing on flickr continues...

    Newer Older

    There are few pathetic people who steal pictures from others photostream and put it in their photostream.
    My photos have been stolen by one such person! He stole 2 of my photos and posted them in his photostream. I requested him to remove my photos, but that shameless creature still continues to keep it in his stream.

    I hate to see my self potraits on this stream. my pics may not be the best but still they are MINE!!
    Go and check his photostream maybe you'll find another stolen shot!

    Lets make everyone aware of such people, lets block them, let's help knock this crap off!

      How do these picture thiefs profit from it anyways? Flickr should have a "report" function.

      I used your photo for an assignment I had to do at University of Phoenix Online (GEN/105). I gave you full credit and a link to this picture. The school classroom is secured therefore making it impossible to provide a link to my assignment.

      The Internet as a whole is nothing but a BIG HUGE encyclopedia. My favorites ones, however, are and There are a lot of pictures that can be stolen as well. It is only proper etiquette or netiquette to provide the link back to the photographer like I did below to show where I got the photos from (photos are attached).

      The picture attached is from
      Username: samiksha
      Picture came from

      The second picture attached is from
      Username: unchartedworld
      Picture came from

      I just used your great photo for a class assignment on VoiceThread. Thank you so much for putting this under a creative commons license. I'm glad the whole photo stealing thing worked out, too.

      Here’s the link...

      Sorry if it isn't there when you check, I might have to delete it for space (VoiceThread only allows 3 presentations at a time)

      Thanks again!

      Those type of people need to get a life. Stealing someone else's photo's doesn't make them a better photographer. It just makes them "loser's" without a life.

      Here is another site who steals photos. I sent a message and asked that my photos be removed. It used to be if you clicked onto any of the three photos you see on the link below ( that are mine that are stolen ) would take you right back to my flickr photos in my photostream. NOW it takes you elsewhere.

      The site is terrible. Someone is profiting and you can....EDIT....the title of the photo....YOUR OWN PHOTO. It stinks:

      These three are my photos and two of them are marked as private....I have no idea how these people who stole them got my photo from a story where the photos are marked as private....

      Has anyone else had trouble with NACHOFOTO ??

      Very Creative. This has just happened to me. A person had posted 4 of my photos on their stream. I was in the process of emailing them when 3 were deleted. One still remains. I then also commented on the photo asking them to remove it. To my disbelief, this person had the nerve to delete my comment, block me from being able to email or comment on anything else & left the photo on their stream. I created a temp flickr account to make 1 last request for them to remove it. People are unbelievable!

      How do your photos get stolen? Are they copyright protected? Did you set to only let yourself download your images? Watermarks?
      This is for my info and maybe your own :)

      A great image. Too bad people think that their images are equivalent to any any image.
