    Nah....I think he was never there to begin with.... The first PM back from him was him apologizing for a photo that I didn't even know he stole? I was mad about the Pelican Grand shot...and he apologized for my Top of the Rock shot in NYC....he used both of them!...Who knows how many more????
    I think the guy is full of crap!

    He knew where he downloaded my shots from!...Why did he not credit me when he posted them?

    Cheers, joe

    UUilliam - IP addresses are not unique, which is often why they are not used to ban someone from a website - since there is always the chance that someone else will end up with the same IP address and thus be banned without reason. If you've said nothing and done nothing then chances are this has happened to you.

    As for the case in question I can't comment (Can't see the site) and as for the situation I think you dealt with it hte best way - though you could try to sue I doubt you would get very far. As for the guy could always be the case that hte just googled around and found your site one night and then save the images to his harddrive - thus forgetting wherever he found the images from - unless he hotlinked them from your site

    You can see the site. The link in this thread that points to that thread now just goes to a login screen because the thread in question has been deleted.
