The people who posted the profiles surely has very low morals and ethics when it comes to abuse pictures of other people.
My request to have fake pictures removed has been completely ignored og I only recieve automatic responses showing.
I therefore see no other way than to warn to be very carefull in trusting profiles on these sites The content (my photos) on the sites are breaking international copyright laws as well as the privacy/integrity of the models depicted.
This was obviously never the aim of my photographs or the wish of the models posing.
In most cases the fake profiles was deleted promptly by the administrators after I contacted them.
You will also need to have staff going through the profiles to check them out, compare photos cross-posted and banning IP-numbers.
Site owners ARE responsible for all material posted and hosted on their site. Luckily some sites actually are taken these precautions.
These people are just looking for easy cash, so....
be VERY much alert and aware if you are using online dating sites.
Most will claim that they are not responsible for what their users post on tehir server, but they are not ready to give away details on the abusive users. I have personally been writing complaints to at least 30 sites by now!
But sadly most of them really do not care about fake profiles, pictures being abused by strangers and paying users being played for fools by other users.
In my opinion the dating sites should take the problem and their responsibility more serious.
