I really do not like to hear this, this is very embarrassing and sad. I think you as the owner must also direct rebuke of the comments section of each photo belongs to you.

His tag line says "I STEAL PEOPLES PHOTOS - my account is being deleted. Again..."
Maybe they are making an example of him like in the old days putting him on public display in a big wooden collar so people can throw rotten tomatoes at him. :)

There are TWO stolen pictures in the top ten of yesterdays Mobile Photos leader board.

Both are repeat offenders.
They should be banned from Pixoto.

The one under Toni Geib was deleted once before but it seems pixoto does not keep a database of known cheaters as this one signed back up useing the same name.
I believe Pixoto currently has no way to prevent this other than depending on the members. I know they say they have a duplicate file filter but we have already shown that does not work well at all. Also apparently they have no way to stop repeat offenders at this time. As Jason tells us "They are working on it". All we can do for now is be vigilant. In case I havn't said it before. Mariko and
Jay and all the others....Thank you for all your hard work. Pixoto would not be as much fun without your help.!!!!!

The duplicate image filter only works for images that have not been deleted. Soon we will be able to ban facebook and twitter accounts but unfortunately that won't stop people from being able to create new accounts. As Mad Eye Moody says: Constant Vigilance!

Ah yes. Harry Potter is alive and well at Pixoto-Hogwarts. :).
Also I hope you don't mind but I am going to test out your filter soon. I will post the results when available and verified. Can't hurt to be sure.

Not sure what you mean by filter but if you can upload it to your submit page then we didn't catch it. Images have to be identical and one of them has to be currently live (i.e. submitted and undeleted).

When I say filter I mean whatever software you have in place to find and or prevent exact duplicates from being uploaded. Also if one of the photos is deleted then it is no longer a duplicate. :)

should be instant (i.e. when an image is uploaded).

You may want to investigate the way it is configured as I uploaded a picture an hour ago that I have had up since july 9th. Exact dups and they are both up there.

Let me know when you don't need the duplicate up any more so I can delete it. It would be ironic if I get flagged as a cheater for trying to help. :)

i still don't understand the use of winning with other peoples stolen image Mariko.. I dont know what they gain out of it.... These days i lost interest in reporting them too .. since there countless numbers of them and i find it difficult to report each one of them.... even regarding the watermarks on many images...sometimes i use to report these days...i guess if these people are mature enough...

Yes but there is to much money to be made from the more than 7 million instagram users to ban them from this site. The more users a web site has the more potential income their is. Pixoto will have to up the quality of the infrastructure before it it collapses under its own weight. There are holes in the foundation and unless they fill those holes people will always find ways to exploit them. IMHO

And the same with Toni Geibs account. Still there. Just the one photo I've reported was deleted.

So people post stolen photos and get not punished at all. These people should be BANNED from Pixoto.

there must be a way to sue these people. If pixoto cannot do it they should inform the real owner of these stolen pictures so that he could sue them. Personally i would like to have these cheaters in front of me. I mean posting duplicates is also cheating but not as bad as stealing somebody's else work. There must be somewhere, where we can report them!!!

Both of these were deleted last night. I checked myself. They both re established their accounts overnight. Unfortunatly Pixoto does not seem to have the technology set up yet to prevent this. Jason had said in a previous post that they can't do anything to prevent these losers from creating a new account yet but "they are working on it". All we can do is keep reporting them and hope they get tired of setting up new accounts.
Jason. Can't whoever does your hosting for you block IP masks from accessing the servers? They have to have logs they can cross reference to see which are the offending addresses.

Well actually now that I think about it I didn't check the other pictures in the account. Maybe you are right Mariko and all Pixoto did was remove the copyright pictures. Hopefully we will not have to wait till Monday to find out and have anything done about it. Oh well. I will be VERY disappointed if they only removed the pictures rather than the accounts even knowing these are repeat offenders. If that is the case why should we bother to keep helping Pixoto......(sigh).... I really don't mean to be negative. I am sure there is a good reason and explanation behind this.

Pixoto did delete accounts of such people. Maybe not this one yet (it's week-end) but then, they open new accounts, maybe with another name. And they will do it again and again... we should report them to the owner of the picture so they can sue them. I thought there is maybe a place, not on pixoto, where we can report them. This is against the law. They should pay more than just get their account deleted.

Hi Michelle, I think they just simply forgot to delete their account. Why do they delete the reported photos only? It can't be so difficult to delete an account. Now it's weekend. And there is another copyright infringer to be deleted...

These people are like cockroaches. You think you got rid of them but they somehow ressurect. It's just horrible. They even multiply...

When a person has a cancer they need to cut it out and destroy it. Unfortunatly Premkumar these people are like a cancer and left to themselves will continue to grow. They need to be found and eliminated from Pixoto or the cancer will spread. If other dishonest people and cheaters see that nothing will happen for this then they will take advantage and make it bad for the rest of us. We need to stop them before they spread. Report as many as you can as often as you need to so we can stay one step ahead of them. The only way they will stop is if we make it to hard for them to cheat. IMHO

Notice the copyright mark in the upper right corner of the photo. It was supposedly taken with a mobile android phone.
