www.tygpress.com is harvesting our posts (site has been currently taken down tonight)


http://www.tygpress.com  has been harvesting our posts for their site. Fandango made this photo to make sure it shows up in the posts they harvest. I found mine on there and many of my friends including those I use for prompts.

I just checked them tonight and they have taken the site down and put an “explanation” up and “apologized.” I don’t know if I believe them or not, but they are currently down.

      They were getting slammed. Thing is they aren’t the only ones out there and I have heard of this happening before. Some of them take credit for the work that was done. This site didn’t take credit for the posts, but still they didn’t have permission to help themselves to our work. A reblog is different. If you put a reblog button on there you give permission for someone to reblog. They just copied everything. I saw it before they took it down and added that super sweet apology.

          I know others who paid a lot of money to have their work removed from a site like that. Someone had connected the link. I think Fandango’s photo that he created and people are posting to the their site caused them issues because it was the first thing to come up and they didn’t get all the posts, just a bunch of posts saying they didn’t have permission to post these posts. They did a quick turnaround.
