Blacklist of Copyright Infringing Websites

Copyright infringements are a pain in the neck not only for photographers. There are too many parasites out there who misuse the work of others. On this blacklist will be websites with a commercial purpose only, which means they either have advertising or sell directly or indirectly via affiliations.

Some extreme "free" ones are also added like e.g. the "Russian Facebook" VK which refuses to take down infringing conten unless you send by mail to Saint-Petersburg "confirming documents, e.g. - raw materials (digital, paper, etc.) that appear in the process of creating the work, a copy certified by a notary of the text, musical notation, etc., other materials (at the discretion of the authors).  This is of course a ridiculous attempt to do nothing against copyright infringements!

This blacklist will be updated regurarly and shared through the social networks.
Feel free to contact me by e-mail if you think a website should be listed here.
