    Image theft by WallPart.com

    Hi all,
    Just a heads up - Just read a post by Nasim Mansurov regarding a new website called WallPart.com making money out of stolen images.
    They seem to have accumulate as many images off the web as they can so they can sell them as posters

    https://photographylife.com/how-to-d...ne-image-theft


    As an example, I searched the site for Everlook Photography - yep. You can buy a poster of one of Dylan & Maryanne's amazing images for a measly $5.59 ! None of which will come back to the photographers of course

    If you post/display/share your images on the internet, it will be worth checking the site your own images.

    I will have a look. I recently notice a photo on another forum that looked just like one of mine. I asked their admin to check it out. The next thing I know it was gone.
    I have been taking photos for 50 years. I am now trying to get into Photography

    They do seem to have stolen images from many people, but their page seems to be not working.

    It seems it isn't quite what people think it is.

    They pull your photos from google and then they use your take down notice requests to build up a spam list. The description is often the same description as shown in google.
