You have many things to learn, kid. I would not be surprised if a1_motor_sales decided to go after you, for theft of intellectual property is not something that most people take lightly. He may ignore it, he may choose to go easy on you due to your age, or he may seek whatever damages that the law allows. I wouldn't blame him. Put yourself in his position and think about what you would do.Rang3find3r wrote:Hi, I just thought I would inform you of some of the childish things that some kids on the internet will do these days.
We have a member that frequently posts content that is questionable at best, and this thread was no exception. Have a look:
I took it upon myself to investigate the matter, and it did not take me very long to find your auction. This young fellow apparently thought it would be a good idea to use someone else's intellectual property as a way to boast about his new "purchase". Sadly, this young man didn't think about the consequences of his actions. I can only hope that this incident helps to open his eyes, and straighten him out.
My intention is not to get him in any more trouble, mainly to inform you that there are people out there who will steal your images(and other people's) for their own personal use, without even thinking about asking permission. I know that there are laws against such theft, but that doesn't stop many of these people.
This usage does not even represent the majority risk, as you're no doubt aware - Scammers would present the greater risk here, so considering these events and the combined risk, it would be wise to watermark any images you post for future auctions. Hopefully this small action will help prevent further thefts such as this one.

makes you wonder why he tried so hard to get admiration and exceptance from people that he looked down upon. not only why he would care about what they think, but why he would think that a "forum full of hicks" would actually want to felate him for his purchase. pretty sad.enførcer[<o>];20102528 wrote:I like how he mentioned genmay as a "forum full of hicks driving 20 year old FCs and 80's GM boats"

No it's not for any of my relatives. Yes I paid for it. No I'm not selling the Intrepid right now.
In all reality I doubt they would go through the trouble of finding out what his IP is, seeking the IP from the out of country ISP, and then pressing charges in another country.Rang3find3r wrote:Touareg208, I'd also like to inform you that I sent this note to a1_motor_sales, the party responsible for the eBay auction in which you stole the pictures:

He has a business to run, and you toy with it as though nothing in the world matters but your own selfish desires. That's just unbelievable.
I hope for your sake that you use this learning experience to relfect on the mistakes you've made in this forum, and surely in the rest of your life. They may go unpunished when you're 17 and living with your parents, but things change a lot when you go out on your own into the real world, as an adult.
Oh I agree, I doubt anything would really happen. I'm sure the seller would get a kick out of it probably, because it's so unbelievably stupid. But it's good to keep people informed, you know?boshi wrote:In all reality I doubt they would go through the trouble of finding out what his IP is, seeking the IP from the out of country ISP, and then pressing charges in another country.

We disagree on 99.9% of things, but you're a good shit man.Rang3find3r wrote:Here's another thing you learned today:
25. The difference, as you've no doubt begun to realize, is that yes, I actually do drive 60's(and 70's) domestic boats. I own them, I maintain them, I am entirely responsible for them. I didn't steal pictures from an eBay auction so that I could try to make myself look like the ultimate hot shit of the internet. Perhaps one day you will understand the difference between someone who works hard for the few things that they have, and someone who pretends to have everything and in reality has nothing.
I have a clean conscience when I go to bed at night. I'm proud of what I own, meager as it may be. I'm proud of what I have so far accomplished with my life so far. Perhaps I don't have a flourishing business with 15 high end cars and everything else under the sun like you would have us believe you have, but what I do have, I worked for. My cars may not be worth a shitload of money, but it's entirely irrelevant. Why? Because they're mine.
Your opinion of my cars or anyone else's is totally worthless. You're going to talk a load of shit about my cars when you steal pictures from eBay auctions to try to prove to people that you're some rich asshole? Haha. Let me know how that works out.
You wanted some high level of acceptance and admiration from people, and the only way you know how to acheive it is by lying through your teeth, posting pictures of cars that aren't yours. That's just amazing to me. I wonder what happened to all the people in the world who were proud of their own accomplishments, modest as they may be?
You've got some serious problems, kid. I may not be the very nicest guy on the forum, and I may not have the fastest/most expensive/best handling car on the forum, but like most people here, I've worked for it and I *gasp* actually own it. I'd rather own a shitbox Yugo with a blown head gasket, 3 flat tires, busted windshield and no gas tank, and have people look down on me for it, than pretend to own a Touareg and have superficial people look up to me for it.
When you understand that simple concept, you will make it in life. You just might. The sad thing is that I don't expect that you're going to see it, until something really happens to you.
