    Sciphone.net ripping off CA.org'ers

    Hey guys,

    I was just at sciphone.net looking for some iphone wallpapers, under their fantasy section I noticed a ton of familiar art that has been posted here.

    I suggest everyone have a quick look through to see if you have given permissions for them to use their work.

    Cheers

    Okay well.. that's a bit too obvious to be a rip off. Nobody can be that stupid really.

    one of the solutions is to report them to google now. that way they stop making money off others hard work. google will turn off their advertising revenue if they find out they are distributing content illegally.

    But it is quite flattering isn't it?

    Woah, this is insane... I see:
    - Geztar
    - Marko
    - Velinov
    - Kei (partner of Bobby Chiu)

    Most of the pix have been uploaded by this guy: Streetfight

    I'm not sure if who's supervising this or who to contact regarding this person. The site does link to other mobilephonesites, so the pix might spread even further....Their faq does mention that stuff in the public galleries is free, but i'm not sure how true that is, that guys profile is public too.

    maybe posting stuff with a huge old watermark will have to do the trick. :/

    Their biz model does not require them to sell it...they are selling advertising which if their traffic is very high could net them thousands of dollars per month. They need to remove the stuff...a cease and desist letter should do the trick...but i would definitely refer them to google so their revenue takes a hit. google will shut down their adsense program for that.
