I found this on one of the threads today and thought it was hilarious:

He is just an honest business man how dare you move your own images. LOL, wow. The stupidity of some people. He wasn't even smart enough to download the images to his own server. Of course he was also taking your bandwidth. Just goes to show that people feel entitled to things these days, free music, software and images.

That's amazing!

I hope the person who posted that note on DPreviw sends him a note telling him that he'll get his lawyer after him for stealing images :)

Point him to your IStock portfolio ;D Then let him sue IStock for putting watermarks on the images... I'm sure both their lawyers would have some fun... LOL

Wow...that's flippin' amazing. It would be funnier, if it wasn't so prevalent these days...

A thief, stealing someone else's intellectual property, is a common thing. Music pirates, hotlinkers, plagiarizers... But this is something completely different. This guy is not only a double thief (stealing images AND bandwidth), but he's also completely without common sense (in other words: moron, idiot, wanker, tosser...).

Things like that make me so mad... A person I know got sued (in the States of course) because he broke a leg of a burglar. He caught the guy burglarizing his house, they got into a scuffle, he pushed him down the stairs and the guys leg popped. Month later he got a subpoena. Fortunately he won the case, but not outright. He won only because it was proven that he was acting in "self-defence of his life". The burglar had a knife...

Not just a thief, an incompetent one. He didn't steal a copy of the image, just used a link to the original location.

Hey, have a sense of humour, guys. It's a joke.
EDIT: I hope

well i have wondered if it is a joke... but it wouldn't surprise me at all if it was real either.
