    Just read about this a lil bit ago, and figured I'd give a heads up here... apparently is running through the web and is collecting images without attribution to the original image copyright holders.

    Here's a link to the article:

    Thomas Hawk Digital Connection Blog Archive Is Trying to Be the Largest Copyright Infringer of All Time?

    Apparently there was enough uproar that they have now shut their site off and are making changes to appease the copyright gods. :thumbup:

    Never heard of the site, however, so I'm not sure if it was something that just launched or has been flying under the radar. The domain appears to have first been registered on April 1st of this year though.
