Well, I've been banninated on Cultopedia; allegedly for bullying!
The banninator hasn't had the courtesy to reply to my email requesting an explanation.
So I've started going through their uploaded images & informing copyright owners in those cases where they have litle or no justification for publishing on their "Educational" website.
1 reply so far, it is Saturday after all, he's going to consult a lawyer friend on Monday!
Heh! he's just come back again with a load of anti-imperialist American opressor stuff! (1/2 in Spanish!)

Sent: Mon 4/21/08 12:22 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Inasmuch as you are in the business of selling Educational material, I think that the following might be of interest:
An image on your website has been copied* and published* on the internet at Conservapedia.com a right wing fundamentalist Christian website. Justification (Fair Use) is claimed on the first of these web pages. A procedure is laid out at (http://www.conservapedia.com/DMCA_Agent) for objecting to this usage, but I would suggest that the 'legalese' of this document is spurious and a mere email to: email@example.com (with "copyright" and "Conservapedia" in the subject line) should be enough in law to satisfy objection.
Should the justification satisfy your requirements, please ignore this email.

- Mr Aschlafly I have discovered several images which have been uploaded under the GFDL license.
- Image:Kasbah of Algiers Mosque.jpg
- Image:Kamakura Budda.jpg
- Image:Great white shark.jpg
It is my understanding that GFDL images are not acceptable here as the same license must be imposed. Also there are many images which claim to be fair use but are only used as "eye candy" on a page, instead of identifying the image subject matter and making critical use of it.
