So, I made this DIY thread a few days ago, can be found here: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1288250

While trying to research more about my problem with my flash, I ran into this website.

http://photography.for​umsee.com …part-sigma-530-flash.html (external link)


Anyone else know about this website? To me, it seems like one of those websites that takes threads from other forums, and just posts them, while having tons ad real estate and making money off of it. It has happened before with one of my automotive forums, and we were able to shut them down. Anyone have any opinions?

Is it still wrong if they've stated where they got the information from? (in the heading)

If they don't ask permission to reproduce content in its entirety, yes it is. Besides, they aren't crediting the poster, just listing where they stole the content from. Unfortunately the hosting services tend to be awkward about actually taking down material that's in violation of copyright unless the copyright holder has big bucks for their club; Pekka's tried to get other sites that copied, verbatim, many threads from POTN taken down, to no avail. You can always contact the hosting service. By pinging the URL, I found that the IP address is 217.160.130.69 and checking the RIPE database, it's administered by Schlund Customers:
inetnum: 217.160.128.0 - 217.160.143.255
netname: SCHLUND-CUSTOMERS
descr: 1&1 Internet AG
descr: NCC #1999110113
country: DE

The email they provide for abuse is: abuse@oneandone.net (external link)

Good luck!

(Care to bet this thread doesn't get picked up there?)

I just find it weird how they only took my first post, and not the rest. LOL. No pictures posted either. If other sites weren't taken down in the past, I'm not even going to bother trying with this one. Just sucks that someone is most likely making money off of the content from this forum.
