Cruise Campus magazine also steals pictures

Posted by Mark

cruise campus

Yesterday I posted about how Al-Qabas are stealing pictures from local flickr users. Turns out the university magazine, Cruise Campus stole not 1 picture but 14 pictures for one of their covers!! Someone should tell them that combining 14 pictures into 1 doesn’t make a new copyright free image. Whats funny is when one of the photographers called them to complain, they told him they got the pictures from a CD which they got off Al-Watan newspaper. [Link]

Thanks to Moayad for pointing out the above.

Al-Qabas newspaper steals pictures from local flickr users

Posted by Mark

qabbas

If you turn to page 48 of todays issue of Al-Qabas newspaper (March 27), you will see a lanscape picture of Kuwait taken by Cajie, an extremely talented amateur photographer. The problem is, Al-Qabas used his picture without his consent. They didn’t email him or try to contact him to seek permission to use his picture. Instead of trying to support a local amateur photographer by at least crediting him, they instead resorted to stealing his picture and not giving him proper credit. Here is the original picture [Link]

Also turns out this is not the first time Al-Qabas have stolen a picture from a flickr user, here is another example. [Link]

And thats not all! Here is even another example! [Link]

If any reader knows someone at Al-Qabas please bring it to their attention that what they are doing is wrong.

Rambo not so hot

Posted by Mark

I was just checking out some pictures off the set of the new Rambo movie and I am guessing there is going to be a lot of retouching and airbrushing before the movie gets released. Sylvester Stallone is really looking old, check out the shot in which he is topless. [Link]
