Websites to Shun - Violate Copyright Answered

More and more websites are doing it now...taking pictures and info from instructables and posting it without giving credit.

(Link Removed - Just in case I'm crazy, because no one else seems to recognize it)

I found that using stumbleupon (and gave it a thumbs down).

Post up the links to website to avoid...websites that don't respect copyright laws. (in relation to instructables)

Can you guys help me find the original instructable that the linked to website copied?

Have you killed the wackyarchives site? All I get is "problems loading page".

I think the Instructable you're talking about was posted for the Halloween 2007 contest. I remember a similar project too, but I also remember it was not just a "ghost". The metallic skeleton was used as a support for ivy (or some other vegetable). I think it was about "how to make vegetable sculpture" or something ....

It may have been for the halloween contest, but it was definitely about using it to scare people.

No, the picture that kiteman posted was the exact one. I'm sure of it.

I've even seen pictures from iBles, or at least ones that had been uploaded to it, used in commercial products.

If you have a look at my "Led throwies" forum topic, that was one of them.

Many of the blog feeds and "funny" sites do it too. My Barbie doll electric chair ended up so many places that I couldn't tell you all of them. :(
