Some of this may have been covered in earlier thread, but I feel like it needs to be revived.
Is there something that can be done about the glut of stolen photos being posted by Flightaware users? The photo reporting doesn’t seem to work at all. I have my doubts that anyone is even checking them. You can’t tell me no one reported this one:
flightaware.com/photos/view/8343 … tes/page/1
or this one
Is there a way to temporarily remove a photo that has been flagged and have volunteer photo moderators look them over for violations of the FlightAware Media License? How about of reviewing the photos before they are allowed to be posted to the site. You could at least weed out stuff like this gem: flightaware.com/photos/view/8239 … tes/page/1 Maybe it was the background of an EFB thereby making it aviation related???
I am hoping some of you will post your ideas to chase away the photo fakers, and maybe Flightaware will listen to them. Whatever system they have now doesn’t seem to deter photo thieves from posting here. Flightaware photos are rapidly becoming the wild west and a few bad people are eager to flaunt their misdeeds in front of the law knowing they can get away with it. hondajet.honda.com/news/landing.aspx they’re kind of hard to find on the Honda site)
There are mostly good people here that want to show off their legitimate work. Those good people need to work on making Flightaware a great place to post their pix, and not let it turn into an anything goes, mycraigsfacelistspacebook.com.
