Pilfered Magazine… game over!

A few people might have seen this briefly lived online photography magazine, that was basically using other peoples photographs found on the web to make a 50 page online magazine every month, without so much as a credit to the photographers. Anyone could submit images (not even there own images!) for potential inclusion in the magazine. Well, it didn’t take long for a few photographers to see there images being used without copyright permission and to slap a few law suits in the direction of Pilfered before the site is “re-imagining our perspective”..
