OMG RB seem intent on ruining this site…. This is so un-user friendly…. I have no idea, where to see new works, new posts or anything……. The new profile page looks horrible. Why oh why do they change things when they aren’t broken?
Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas. I am thinking of selling my Canon EOS 500d. Comes with kit lens EFS 18-55mm plus Hoya 58mm PL-CIR and HOYA Skylight (1B) Filters. It’s a superb camera but I haven’t used it much in past year as I now have the 5d Mk2…. I kept it as a spare, but I need more funds to buy a lens my 5d so deserves! And I need new lights as one of mine is playing up, which when photographing children I cannot afford to happen! Any sensible offers considered, please in box me! I still have the box etc for it!
There has been some action taken behind the scenes regarding the stolen art from RB onto the Pixdaus site. Initially it was just Zafar1 who we knew was stealing, but on going through the site there are many more who have other peoples work up as their own. Afew more are Jchip8, GOTINHA, LILLY & EBITARY, there are many more, but I didn’t record them. We don’t have the support of RB, they advise us to act on our own behalf, I have complained enmass to PIXDAUS and others have too. Some of the artwork has been taken down from the site. So if you are aware of any stolen work whether it is yours or some one you know (please inform them) then start sending the emails, the more they get the more they will have to act.
To this person: firstname.lastname@example.org who runs Pixdaus, send…
Pixdaus seems to be a cowboy website with no control over what is posted there. There are comments dating back to 2008 re stolen artwork and Ellen Van Deelen tried to get her stolen images removed months ago but nothing has happened.
As you maybe aware many stolen RB have been found on there.
Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act you can contact the ISP and inform them of the copyright infringement and they will remove the infringement from the world wide web.
Now this can either be done collectively, and even though my images have not been stolen that I am aware of (they aren’t good enough!) i will willing act as an agent for all, or individuals can contact the ISP direct.
Either way this is what you must do if you wish to act for yourself. ####################################…
Does anyone know why RB has changed your public profile page? I had always sorted my art into my best and most popular pieces of work first and then followed them by other favs and some of my newer work, then subject matter throughout my pages. The images were always sorted to have some sort of colour scheme too so that it was asthetically pleasing to the eye. Now it looks a damned mess with the latest images loaded first. Is there anyway of changing this back? Yet again this appears to me to be change for change sake. I DO NOT LIKE THIS AT ALL.
