      Gymnastics fans and copyright issues

A lot of (Romanian) gymnastics fans, want to share their common passion and open new websites. This is a nice thing.

Not so nice is when they " borrow" photos from other sites (not ours, is not because of this), not even mention the source (author and agency), use copyright, agency- protected articles like they own the rights (but they don't ) and start promoting their websites around, to enjoy their "victory" .

A lot of Romanians newspapers, for example, don't even want to hear about giving permissions for their articles, after their articles being stolen and translated for years (this is as very serious felony) without permission, until they have heard about this (only few newspapers gave latter such a limited permission, after the copyright scandal have started, as they were not asked before).Such a bad event affects all other honest people, who may want to do it properly from beginning. No wonder same person have "borrowed" from us some news, too, and have included the source only after we asked to do so, despite their past bad experience with copyright laws. There is a saying, "bad habits are difficult to remove".

We do not encourage and we stop at once these
"webmasters" to promote their sites into our special forum, because we don't encourage copyright laws infringements and immoral actions against our colleagues with other sites, for which they have had worked hard. We also respect the hard work of all gymnastics photographers, one of the most difficult photo task to have is taking gym photos. Bad light, fast move, difficult access on stage. We don't like those who want to simply steal photographers work and use to show up with sites looking more like Aladdin-Cave (having stored a lot of nice goods, but all of them being stolen).

Same for videos, taken from TV stations and re-posted somewhere else without their prior permission is pure and simply breaking the law, and TV stations are very powerful in term of law enforcement. If you download such a video, you also broke the law and may be asked to pay fines later.

"Ignorance is no defense and buys no excuses"-said one of the Internet rules-details on

Last year alone, few hundreds music fans were asked to pay important fines (up to $3000) and also important copyright fees (and they have paid gladly, to avoid further criminal charges), because they have had downloaded music from sites witch promised "free" music. Well, they paid more than if they got it from legitimate shops.

When you start a download, the server will record your IP and this may bring to you any law action from TV stations.

"If we publish files on the Web (graphic, music, html, etc) we did not create (direct-linked or not), not in public domain, and without the creator's permission, we may find ourselves facing charges of copyright infringement, which involves fines and/or jail time. Infringement: files, intellectual property, including graphics, composed by someone other than the one publishing it (illegally) on their site"-
