Pilfered Magazine shut down by Copyr. Alliance

The Copyright Alliance has succeeded in closing down, at least temporarily, Pilfered Magazine, an online publication that uses photographs without permission from the photographers.

“Thanks to your actions in mobilizing the visual arts community, friends, and other creators, I am happy to announce that over the weekend the site took down all infringing images. And, it claims that it will only solicit works from rights owners,” said spokeperson Lucinda M. Dugger.


“Through your comments on the Magazine’s website, the Copyright Alliance’s blog, Twitter, personal blogs, and other sites, we see how quickly artists can influence change when speaking with a collective voice as a community.”
