this could be a ground for copyright infringement right?

I don't know who deleted the photo, I believe the copyright infringer himself, but I ask you, Pixoto, to DELETE his account. That's what you do with copyright infringers, right? I'm sure you can check the image in question even if it has been deleted already.
Do you need the name?

ive read in one of my post before that pixoto doesn't tolerate togs violating copyright infringement law. pixoto still have a record of the photo even if this user deleted it. Pixoto can even re-post it as one tog in the past requested for his photo to be recovered after he accidentally deleted the image.

Im not sure but this tog might be receiving special treatment here. He has been reported as some of his photos are in question but pixoto has never responded to it.

We take copyright infringement very seriously. That said there have been cases where photographers have uploaded ot instagram photos that they did not take that were then autoposted to Pixoto. Because instagram is a social network people share all sorts of stuff on there. This unintentional posting to Pixoto is one of the reasons we now require #pixoto to post (which has in fact reduced submissions by 90%).

I will need to research this situation in particular to see what happened.

Wow, look at all those #1 of the day awards. The sad part is he can keep finding new ways to get his account back.

Here's another example of an easy case of copyright infringement- a photo of Avril Lavigne in a tiara, which is found just by googling her name- there's a site to download free wallpaper of this image.
This person has won an award for a month and a year for this image- so it's either gone unreported or pixoto hasn't done anything. (I reported it)

I only saw this because it was in a duel with one of my digital art images, and at first I thought "cool, one of Avril's professional photographers is here..."... but it doesn't appear to be so.

Hmm it says "avirl lavigme" ... maybe it's a picture of Avril's twin sister :D
Feels like seeing a bootleg shoe called Raybuk, or a bootleg apple laptop with a full apple as logo (no bite marks) ...

Copyright issue aside, can't believe that pic only got top 20% award! I mean she's hot and all.
