In my PIC OF THE DAY thread, bigbadger's take on people using other peoples pics on the internet (holy shit he is stupid):

GNAR, while I appologise profusely for not following the rules of posting in this topic (you will see that I dug an old pic up of a local to post so that I will be in compliance) it worries me that you don't care about people posting pictures that they don't have a legal right to. Remember the Napster lawsuit? Posting pics here without permission of the owner is under exactly the same legal grounds that got the owner of Napster sued into oblivion. It is perfectly possible that the owner of one of the images posted without permission could sue this site out of existance as well. And the last time I checked, I don't own a road bike, shave my legs and arms, or talk about being cat one.

Hydroboy, thanks for that rousing post on just how little you know about copyright law. If you believe that you could get permission, and I don't doubt that you can, then it is on you. I agree that the KOXX pics are really crisp. That's how I know that chances are good that someone was likely paid to do them. From what I know about the industry in Europe, they got paid a lot too and would expect to get paid even more for unauthorised use.

I guess it is on you to care or not but I think that if you enjoy having this site around you might do well to not behave in such a way to endanger it.



On the topic of the coustellier video, from markov (he gets the ignorant dumb fuck ass award):

Street?

I know I'm going to get flamed hard for this but in my opinion they don't have muh style. All they did was do big pedal ups on cement blocks and occasionally pull back and fakie out. Sure it was good and all but I much prefer Ryan Leech and Morley Wilkins to them.

Basically that was a comp ride on cement.
The icing on the cake, holy shit this is the dumbest thing I've ever seen (besides his comments on what rims to use, and any other advice) from p3boy when someone asked how to go higher, the person who asked said he could up 3 palletes which he measured as 1.5 feet:

Welcome Haz, so this is your first post; hope to see more, but as for your question, I have one of my own: What are pallets? if you tell me this i'll be able to figure out how high you're getting much easier

And this kid was at a competition made SOLELY of palletes.

Did anyone see the Southpark where all the shitty musicians quit making music to protest napster.Rather than making music for the art of it .The video being replayed is further advancing their rising fame.It's not readily available for sale,and they are not paying their rent by its sale.Ryan leach's video on the otherhand is,so please pay for it ,maybe.....If there were an infringement, a cease and desist letter would most likely precede any serious legal action.If real-tv used it without permission for profit it might be different.I don't think Bill is pimpin an Escalade just yet.
I'm sure I'll make it to Andrews' best of dumb ass post'r boys yet.

Peas!

:) I'm not even making enough on ads to pay for the bandwidth we use. If the site ever does actually go further than breaking even :eek3: I will reinvest everything back into making it better.

Yeah I saw that get changed, does stefan not fucking realize that HARDCORE ****** porn with donkeys is a click away for kids??

He honestly wants that site to be for little children, when he doesn't seem to accept the fact that if they type one word wrong in a search engine they will see 40 " dildos going into fat peoples butts. Naive? Ignorant? Stubborn? Who knows...he can stay there living in fantasy land.
