Today I came across two more "smart" ones, that share stock photos as their own.
First, https://www.clickasnap.com/nimamoud

I have found dozens of photographers on this site who have either stolen from stock or from someone else's page. Sadly, it happens way too often, even in the Posipix competition. Today, quite by accident, I found this gorgeous photo (a runner up in the latest nature competition) on someone else's instagram page. The actual photographer's name is Asko Kuittinen. To be sure, I did a Google search on the image, and up popped loads of hits with this photo connected to Asko Kuittinen. I think, to be fair on other submitting photographers, Mike should do a Google search on any potential winners before choosing. Unfortunately, in this digital world, it's so easy to steal from others. Anyway, here's a link to the photo: https://www.instagram.com/p/CUSnbl9sCRh/

Wow, the nerve some people have! No shame at all apparently. Nice catch!

A new 'trick' apparently, steal photos and put your own copyright message in:

And another one:

This is actually the same user as the marbi one from a few days ago. Just trying it again under another account. What is wrong with these people?
