GameSpy has lifted and published (yes, illegally) a list of "The 25 Worst Videogame Stock Photos". It's here.

 Well, as always an email to CE is better than a forum post.... but wow, who are these morons that think they can use our images like this? Oh yeah, its probably the same idiots who've chimed in over here complaining about the other recent crackdown on image abuse....

What is this shit with bloggers thinking they have the right to use unpaid for watermarked comps as free content for their sites? Asshats. But I'm glad to see the blog I reported to CE was taken down, even if some people are not happy about it.

They almost certainly won't, but they'll issue a cease and desist.

i figured i would put another post on here since it is linked in to in the comments section,


the reason why stock photos do not accuratly depict "true" gammers is no advertiser is going to purcase a photo of a 30 year old overwight virgin that lives in his mother basement and works at a fast food resturant.

Actually I take great personal offence at that. Mother always calls it the Lower Ground Floor.

Gawd, whose idea was it to tell every blogger in the world that they can steal iStockPhoto comps without credit, linkback or paying any licensing fee?  Would it really be that big an expense for gamespy to just *buy* the 320x240 photo so they don't get all this bad press?  Word is we sell these photos for like two bucks.

Good news is, Getty pays lawers to sit around all day and plan how many spikes they're going to drive into the financial future of the next company that thinks they'll get away with a content licence violation.
