Default plagiarism

I must bring to the attention of all members of trekearth that username japiey 's (Jean Paul) post OMNIPRESENCE ... is a copyright material of digitalblasphemy.com .

Here is japiey's post,
http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Asia/India/photo693921.htm

Check out the wallpaper named "Satori"
http://www.digitalblasphemy.com/freegallery.shtml

I believe such instances plagiarism go against the principles of this site. I am asking the members of trekearth to respond to this.

After looking a lot at them, I think you are right, these are the 2 same pictures, except Japiey's is cropped, inversed and processed vs the other one. Maybe jean-Paul has something to say about it.

Satori has been my wallpaper for a good while a couple of years ago. It's one of their first artwork...I hope Jean-Paul works for DB. I'm sure there is a good explanation for this. Let's wait and see.

Hi,
That sounds quite nasty! I wonder why someone would do this.... maybe he is the author of the wallpaper in digitalblasphemy??
I hope so , for JP's sake! He is a nice fellow, actually...

Looks like at least another one is also present on Digital blasphemy. It's called Glenwood and was published in 2001: http://www.digitalblasphemy.com/mpages/getreview.shtml?i=glenwood&t=Glenwood
Jean_paul's picture is called Enchanted forest and can be found here:http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Asia/India/photo696741.htm
Again, I hope Jean-Paul has a good explanation for this,
Marc

Looking at all of his other photos, a lot of them are in the same style. It's most probable that he didn't plagiarize. Perhaps, the photo in that website is his.

Default to komal

You have done a great job,Komal.
I should thank you for this.
The first thing, you could have contacted me..
I have sold many images..to many photo agencies
very earlier, and now had thought to share here too.
Now it's better that those are not here...
Thanks.

Default Loud and clear

Why in bloody hell would you delete your entire gallery, Japiey ?????????

There is NO BETTER confirmation than this, that you have indeed copied your pictures from the websites... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's just a matter of question: HOW MANY OF THEM ????
Marc asked: You better have a good answer to this suspicions, JP.
And you gave us an excellent one...
Loud and clear...!!!!!
-------------
BTW
It's called: Stealing...
Plagiarism is a mocking of the original to some extent...
