Hi fellow EPZers. I'd like to bring something to your attention that has been brought to my attention on another Website I use. Virtually my entire PF has been uploaded to this Web address, www.fotosimagen.com without my permission. During looking at this site I found images not only from myself, but also several ePHOTOzine members as well. My images have been taken from the two sites that I use on a regular basis, so If I were you I would put a Copyright onto all the images you post. It's not so bad for the smaller images, but an image of 1000 pixels is good enough for a quality A4 Print. I'm not going to name the names I've seen on this site, as it would'nt be right, and besides there are far too many of you on there!! be on your guard, as digital theft is all too easy, and very common it seems.
Regards to all,
Paul Rosser.

had a look at the page source and the images are what Google cashes, they are not hosted at the server, rather they are hot linked from google, if you don't like it don't put your valuable images online.

By the way there is many hundreds of mine there too!

JJGEE, basically it's "click on the image for the original source"
