Checking Image Ownership
May 15, 2012

( this is an area where Raptor excels )

So, I have checked every image submitted in my challenge. Three images appear somewhere else on the net. I can't determine if there is foul play or not. One is probably fine as both sites (this one and the other one) list indicate the person lives in Spain (but has wildly different user names). I guess I can leave that one alone.

But there are two others bothering me. I found an email on one site and emailed the owner there to try and verify but no reply after 24 hours has gone by.
.

And the other one is listed for sale on another site. Certainly, it could be another site that the DPR entrant has but how does one go about verifying an image hasn't been stolen?

The challenge:

And I list the images here I'm trying to check NOT to be taken as an accusation or declaration but as an attempt to make sure everything is fine.

(this is the image I found at "Youngdoo" site and to whom I sent an email)

Thoughts?
