    I just found some of my Fotos I've posted here, in a yahoo-album:
    http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/bigballal2003_7/my_photos
    I think its ok to copy pics for private use, but not for making them public.
    They should only be for this site and not for somewhere else. Isn't it possible to make it impossible to copy fotos from here? What would you say, if you would see your fotos somewhere else? This gal has not even asked me if he could use them for his album. I think thats not fair-play. What do you think?

    All I can say is, you are in great company there, some major sized meat!

    All kidding aside, they're your pictures and you certainly have a right to be upset.

    Still, I love seeing all that massive cock there in one place.

    Yeah, it's harsh. Theonly saving grace is that she at least used your name, rather than attributing them to someone else or using them on a pay-for-porn site (as I've had done).

    Email her and ask he to not use them. She may be a reasonable person.

    You could try e-mailing her and ask her to NOT use them since you have not given her permission.

    Or, you could ask her for a cut of what she makes on them , since she is apparently selling them.

    Regardless, they are your pictures and your magnificent cock, and you have a right to decide who sees it and under what terms.

    Ask her and see if you can reach a solution.

    Oh, I thought someone had said it was a she...

    I'd start with bigballal2003_6@yahoo.com and asking that your pis be removed.

    If you don't get a respose, then go to Abuse at Yahoo to complain. Yahoo takes this stuff seriously.

    Yea, i had a similar situation, in which my cock pics were in the LPSG "hall of fame" in the photo section without my permission. All I had to do was politely ask th mod......though he may be compelled to ask you for some proof that you are who you say you are. He initially tried with me, but relented because i guess we had a good rapport and he believed me.

    anyways, it's worth a shot

    You said something in your initial posting about "this gal" so I assumed you knew it was a woman. That's why I used "she" to describe her.

    I still think all the pics are super hot, and that you are in impressive company.

    Handle it how best you see fit.

    I will say one thing............Those have got to be the ugliest dicks I have ever seen. Maybe one or two that would be nice to hold. For the most part one can understand why most women do not like to suck dick.......from the looks of those dicks. No offense............but I would think a long time before posting a pic of my cock on the internet for someone to post at will anywhere. If I was going to I would make sure it was as photogenic as possible before I would post it. Those were some ugly cocks.....................

    I have pics and vids of me floating around the net.. I make sure my face is NOT in any of them.. I can tell you that if you post them, they will use them in their own sites.. You could do like I have seen a few girls do and superimpose over the pic a message or something..

    Bigballal was a member of the old Yahoo LPSG site but I don't know if he's a member here now.

    I've admired those collections of pics for quite a while, I think it's one of the best collections of big dicks on the net. It's clearly a celebration of guys with big dicks and intended for the enjoyment of others.

    I don't see this instance as 'stealing', but more a case of 'collecting'. I think once someone has posted a pic here then it's deemed to be in the public domain. As far as I'm aware there are no copyright notices here saying that pictures shouldn't be reproduced without the owners permission.

    As Pappy knows from my correspondence with him, I am very against people stealing images and claiming them as their own, and have pleaded with guys to add some unique identifier to their pictures to reduce the risk, but I don't see that in this instance. As others have said, the owner of the pics was acknowledged and, from the spirit of the site, even celebrated for being a special guy.

    I don't know Al and have never chatted with him, but it seems to me that he is a fan doing a great job of collecting images of hung guys for the enjoyment of others. I doubt very much if he even intended to offend or embarrass anyone and I'm sure he'd remove your images if requested.

    cheers

    Dillon

    I am "so" glad I'm not in that situation.

    Yes, it's collecting, rather than stealing/misrepresenting. Still, there's a common courtesy among civil people to actually ask permission to use -- regardless how -- that which isn't yours.

    "Public domain" is a legal heading used for works that become free to use and have no copyright. Currently, any work that is created by an individual after 1977 has an automatic international copyright term of the creator's life plus 70 years. The work doesn't need to be formally registered. Photography almost never falls within the 'fair use' clause.

    Posting pictures does not automatically convey public domain status unless explicitly granted by the creator.

    This is obviously very difficult to enforce in this context. I've also had my photos used in commercial and free sites without my permission. I typically request the owner to remove them.

    Karma will prevail... eventually :)

    I've said it before and I'll say it again - I just don't understand the need for people here to lie about themselves, here or elsewhere on the net.

    What does stealing someone's picks and using them as your own accomplish?

    If you go on here claiming to be well hung, when in real life you're not, what does this accomplish?

    I'm not trying to be rude, but I just can't figure it out. I could come on here claiming to be 12 x 9, with a bunch of pictures I stole of Kazaa, but I'm not that big, so doing so just seems stupid to me.

    I come here to learn from others and share my own experiences, many of which I could have experienced with a penis half mine's size. You're not hung? That's okay, people here don't seem to judge others about their statistics, in fact the only judgment I've seen here is usually against people who say derogatory things - and many of these people are the ones claiming to be big.

    I'm sorry for the rant... I know it's mostly off-topic, but it's late and I'm in a bad mood.

    Holy Crap! I had no idea this discussion was here...

    #1, I'm taking off the offending photos right now. Honestly, it's basically just a collection for myself and I don't want anyone angry at me.

    #2, My profiles clearly state that none of the pictures are me.

    #3, I'm a man, but I think Dominik20 meant the "she" to imply that I'm a bitchy, swishy queen (which I'm not). The "she" a gay thing - no problem.

    As a side note, now that people seem to have figured out that my pic collections exist, there is an ethical question here. Not that this is an excuse, but anyone who has posted a pic on the internet must know by now that, if it's a hot photo (which Domink20's certainly are), people will copy it. I'm certainly not pretending to be him and I'm not selling them or anything and I stand to make no personal gain here. Actually, I've just been collecting pictures for years and my hard drive was getting full, so I threw them up on yahoo. If this is a problem for anyone (I'm sure a few of the guys I have pics of make it onto this site occasionally), let me know.

    Hi Al........... :D
    Personally I love your collection of genuine huge cocks, Its one of the best collections I have ever seen.
    I am in there too and in my opinion if guys dont want thier pics to be seen, then they should not post them in the first place.
    Folks should remember that in the heat of the moment it's easy to press that send button, but......once that is done all control over them ceases to exist.
    Its cool that you have taken down Domimiks pics as he asked, that was a gentlemanly thing to do (many would not have) and hopefully Dominik is satisfied that his wishes have been honoured.
    As for you Al...............KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
    ;)
    Oh yes, Dominik, they were very hot pics, I for one definately enjoyed seeing them....... :)
