    A couple of days ago I stumbled upon www.showyourdick.org where some pathetic copycat is posting my pictures (http://www.showyourdick.org/member.php?w=213264) that were stolen from this very website. This guy must be a member of www.lpsg.org because some of the stolen pics were uniquely posted here. My pics started to appear from November 29th.

    And he's even got the guts to use my nickname! I'm really pissed off with this thing and I want to know who is doing this. I already sent an abuse-mail (with some 'proof pictures') to www.showyourdick.org but apparently they don't want to act quickly on this copyright infringement. They say the copycat is a paid member so they protect him ...

    I'm posting this here (also sent a copy to the LPSG.org webmaster) to ask for your support and at the same time warn you for these kind of malevolent people. I've always found this community very friendly, open-minded and supportive so it would be very sad to be forced to leave because of these rotten apples.

    Thanks for your support.

    Aninnymouse will be along with the appropriated butthurt forms in a moment. In the meantime, I'd like to ask if the material is actually copyrighted.

    You should consider putting a transparent watermark copyright over the picturesand reuploading them. I know it isn't as lovely to view as the original, but it would help greatly with the theft and protection of your photos.

    Ah, thanks very much!

    If you mean that these pictures are mine, taken by my and depicting myself, yes they are copyrighted. But in a technical sense, no (not registered or watermarked or something like that). And, of course, I own the original, high resolution copies of all these pics.

    Hmm ... I'm afraid I'll have to start doing that, yes.

    You're in a position where it's your word against theirs. Sorry. I don't doubt that you're a good and nice person and that the pix are yours, but you really can't do much. There are those who would argue that your pics are now in the public domain, and others who might submit that they are the property of the site they were stolen from. Sucks.

    I used to be a member of fubar and used the same user name there as I do here. Then I found out some 19yr old girl bogarted my name on some lame bb boards... If you do a search of my user name...guess where it leads to.

    Take that 19yr old name wanker. :wink:

    May not be worth the effort, but you could always join that site and post the same newly watermarked pics of yourself plus some new ones to prove you're legit, then call your copycat out and stuff. But since, as you said, they are protecting him they could just quietly ban you and get on with their lives, leading to even more butthurt on your part.

    Just my two cents.

    Yeah I would totally create a name, upload every one of those pictures and then add several new ones that are proof you are the person in the photos. Since you would be the first to come up with those that are verification pics, the other person is going to look pretty silly.

    It is sort of flattering really. I search the interwebs for my stuff every now and again and I find that no one wants to be an overweight, pale redhead with short hair. Everyone wants to be a thin, long blonde hair, tan porn star. It works out pretty well for me. ;)
