Content pirates!!
#17
Back on topic, here's an interesting turn of events:

I emailed him, asking him nicely to remove my material:

Quote:Dear robbyahh,

Hi there, I noticed that you've copied and pasted the entire text of my review on Shuttertalk, and not only that -- you're linking to images on my server.

While I am slightly flattered, I would ask you to please kindly remove all offending text and images, as this material is copyrighted.

You are welcome to post a link to the review, but please be a bit more original than cutting and pasting.

I am reporting this matter to ebay authorities and they will in due course suspend your account and all oustanding auctions if this matter is not rectified pronto.

Thanks kindly,
Julian

And he replied today with:

Quote:My apologies to you for doing this. I should have asked your permission first.
I actually cut and paste if from someone elses ebay advert, but that does not make what I have done right.
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...eName=WDVW

I am happy to change my advert and remove your review if that is your desire. I will do this shortly.

My apologies once again and keep up the great reveiws. When someone like you who is in the know can publish reviews like this if is very helpful.

Thanks

Rob

I noticed that his auction description on ebay reads much differently now... I have to give him credit for apologising and doing what was appropriate. Big Grin

Now, to go after the guy whom he copied the ad off... :x
