eBay meet Flickr meets copyright theft  
Charles Arthur pointed me at this story, which I thought was unusual: how often does someone come up with a really new kind of theft? Published today. To me, this really *is* piracy, as is selling counterfeit DVDs and other types of merchandise. I don't think it's the right term for file-sharing.

The non-tennis fans who read this (almost everyone) can avoid my blog postings from Eastbourne at tennis.com.

It's not new - it's been around as long as the web has.

Yeah, professional web designers were amoung the first victims - perhaps the very first.

Did people really sell emailed copies of Web pages over eBay?

It's been around for nearly five years and has been worked over by many thousands of diligent contributors.

There are idiots paying for digital images?

trying to stop it
Wendy,

I'm the CEO of a photo company focused on trying to help people facing this issue. We wrote a blog post on our blog (blog.photrade.com) recently about all of the photo theft that is happening all around the web. I wanted to try to get in touch with you to learn more about the cases you've reported on (notably in the Guardian) as we're trying to get in touch with people with this kind of problem to try to help them.

Sorry for the comment spam here but couldn't find another way to reach you!

-Andrew Paradies, CEO Photrade.com (acp (at) photrade (dot) com)
