Just discovered this site today and if you're a photographer who actually works hard for each and every one of your photos and clients, you'll love it too: http://stopstealingphotos.tumblr.com/

The thieves are simply pathetic. Expose them for what they are and get them out of here.

Aloha,

figured out a couple of things;
they company that is doing it has a few other photographers the are stealing from, all connected to one lab,
Talked with my  account rep and will start to dig deeper into the theft tomorrow, my best guess at this point is someone who was employed by the lab managed to get this gallery some stolen prints, contacted the other photographers and will be calling the lab to develop a plan Monday...

Thanks for posting this, Ellis. Just another way of misrepresentation by hiding behind the anonymity of the internet. A thief by any other name...

Aloha,

All's well that ends well.

the person that disposes of damaged prints, thought it was a shame to throw the rejects out, sold them all at his church yard sale to a gallery; the gallery posted these online, that's how I found out.

The lab went ballistic, took care of everything in less than 48 hours!

back to square one, which is a good place to be...

Sadly because those losing out are generally small businesses you'll not see anything close to the reaction against copywrite thieft that effects larger businesses.

There are two new updates on http://stopstealingphotos.tumblr.com/ including a hysterical reply from one of the photographers who's been caught redhanded.

A site like this is badly needed. But sadly this one is very poorly laid out. All the data needs pulling off of tumblr and putting into a proper website.
