@Pekka, I remember this action very well and I have learned my lesson.
What I do not know exactly is the name of the moderator, but this is not so very important, isn't?

Long, long dekades ago there was a professional photographer in Hamburg, his name was Gustav Boedecker with 100 000 or 200 000 or more photos from ships all over the world coming to Hamburg.
If you need a special ships photo, just ask Boedecker, he had a photo.
When he died in 2000 or so a bookchandler Hafenfuchs purchased all the photos including all rights from the children of Mr. Boedecker.
Many, many german websites, DDG Hansa, Chr. Biedekarken, Peter Hartung, Poseidon etc,etc. had photos from Boedecker on their webseites when Mr. Hafenfuchs started a trial against these website owners, and he won the trial because of mass copyright violation of his photos.

An extract from a forum, dated 2009 in german language, but I think Google can help to translate.
http://forum-schiff.de/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=1463&start=110

But one special sentence:

Von den 13 betroffenen Webmastern sind 3 oder 4 nachgeblieben, der Rest hat wegen geringen Beträgen gezahlt. Thomas Kraft und ich haben seit langen einen Rechtsawalt mit unseren Interessen beauftragt.


Translation; From the 13 involved webmaster 9 or 10 have paid the demands (many 1000 Euros)of Hafenfuchs, the other 3 or 4 have hired a lawyer.

Finally all the Hafenfuchs (Boedecker photos) have been removed from the websites, or the websites have been closed.

I remember what happened shortly after I became a member here in May 2006.
I had uploaded a birds view photo from a beautiful portuguese cargo ship, of course without copyright and permission.
The finnish moderator that time, (was it Pekka Laakso or Alexi Lindstroem ?), contacted me and advised me to delete the photo immediately, but I ignored. Then he contacted me again and gave me 1 hour to delete the photo, otherwise he would suspend my account. Such warning also should be given to Gena Anfimov.

But now I hope the present Admins will take necessary action, if not I go.
I have not uploaded all my photos I made withinh the last days, I will just wait and see.

@Clyde, I have nothing against old, historic photos, but the copyright or explicit permission to upload must be clear.

Hi @ll dear shipspotter.

I found 4060 stolen photos in the Instagram-account by spanish user @perebisa
https://www.instagram.com/perebisa/?hl=de

All the photos were taken from Marinetraffic, but many, many of these photos are also uploaded from Shipspotting-member.

I could manage with 2 reports to Instagram that 85 of my stolen photos were deleted, but that guy continues every day with uploading.

Owen,
I can report about dozends of managing directors contaccting me every year.
Indeed, some of them are paying for my photos but most of them are not willing to pay.
And I check especially these companies every 3 month looking for one of my photos they have "borrowed" after cutting off my watermark.

Hello @Frans and hello @3SX

the next copyright violations of @Paata Tabagua have also been hidden on the MT server and will also be deleted from the database after Christmas.
But now the photos are no longer public visible.

Request to the @SS-Admins

@Paata Tabagua is also a member in SS and because of his mass copyright violations from collegues here in SS he schould be banned

Hi @ll,
all 28 photos were hidden in the MT database, they are no more public visible. After christmas I will inform MT to remove all the links from their server.

Merry Christmas to all of you,

I have checked his account and found in the first sight 28 stolen photos, I have forwarded the links to the MT collegues and I am sure the copyright violations will be history today, I report the success later.
