Struth, someone there is even giving advice on how to attract customers over the internet:
He fails to mention suing MTB forums, or maybe this is a new strategy!
EDIT can’t see what he’s moaning about “get people to link to you, build a reputation, and the net is yours for the taking”
He’ll soon have a reputation, just might not be the one he wanted….Posted 6 years agorogerthecatMember

It’s certainly not always practiced on forums but I think ideally the OP should have credited where he got the photos from in his first post.
I don’t see why it should be STW’s responsibility though.
There’s an irony! They were linked from the Edale MR Facebook page as I mentioned when the TV bloke asked, even said that they were not mine. Never even knew they were owned by a third party, perhaps they should speak to EMR and ask them not to make pics available on a public social media platform.Posted 6 years ago
Here’s the hotlinks from above minus the IMG tags..
It’s not clear where they are from. Does anyone know how to decipher facebook image urls?Posted 6 years ago
er, let me Facebook that for you, Mark
(I typed “Edale Mountain Rescue” into the search box on FB)Posted 6 years ago
yes, that I know how to do thanks 🙂
I was trying to pin those specific facebook image tags to an account.
As it happens my good friend Julian has already been over to the Edale MR Facebook page to investigate for himself.
No sign of the images on their page, although it’s a moot point anyway as NO ONE HAS DONE ANYTHING WRONG!

I don’t think there is a way to decipher a FB image URL. I’m getting
as the URL for the first one from the SafariQuip FB page, which is presumably the same source as the ones hotlinked on here given the last bit of the URL is the same, though I don’t understand why the first bit is different (I’ve tried and can’t get a URL looking like the ones you’re giving for a FB image).
Edit: you asked for a direct link to the FB page – I did wonder why that was so difficult! I can confirm that I can’t see the images there either.Posted 6 years ago
If they were there it looks like Edale MR didn’t know about it – maybe they were linked in a comment or a now deleted post from EMR who have buckled under the might of SafariQuips legal heavyweights…

@edalemrt Hi. We were told these avalanche pics were yours: http://bit.ly/10mbXic . Do you mind if we use them on the BBC News website?

Interesting to see who’s browsing the STW forum 😉
Shame that you’ve chosen to threaten Singletrackworld with legal action because forum users have been hotlinking.
I for one will be buying nothing from you and I can imagine there’s a lot of posters on Europes largest MTB website (and thus a lot of people who enjoy exactly the sort of activities that you seel equipment for) that will feel the same.Posted 6 years ago

Julian’s not going to be happy with [edited]another publication[edited] either…
Edited to make it harder for Julian and his crack team of internet legal experts to track down people who are actually doing what he incorrectly accused rogerthecat of doing. If some unemployed bike riding numpty can find it then I’m sure his top team will be onto them in no time.Posted 6 years ago
Looks like Glossop MRT have some pix that are strikingly similar to ‘old Julies.Posted 6 years ago
