First, the story: I’ve been looking for a good digicam recently. For research, there are 3 sites I’ve found that are good online: dpreview, dcresource, steve’s digicams. While checking news at dcresource, I find that pconline.com.cn has many stolen full (20+ page, including images in some cases) reviews from all 3 of the above. This is bad, and mr. dcresource is understandably upset.
Now, the question: pconline.com.cn is (obviously) in China. From a post many moons ago, I tracked http://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ38a.pdf down. It says US (where dcresource is located, I believe) has all sorts of “don’t steal our stuff” agreements with China. But so what? Aside from sending the “cease-and-desist” letter (dcresource did, no response, no result), what can he do? To further complicate matters, dpreview is located in London.
So, how 'bout it? A couple of script kiddies with some spare time could take care of this for a good long while, but what can be done legally?
If you’d rather, you can email the dcresource admin. I won’t post his email here, but it’s on his site.
