Tried that AOL search and see different results. Interesting we found a Chinese website travelbbb hosting several of our (and presumably other) stolen images.
We sent take down request to webmaster, host, root, abuse and they all bounce back.
They use a clever gadget that scrolls up a Google Adsense advert that obscures like 10% of the lower portion of the stolen images which is where most copyright watermarks go.
Most pages are stolen images littered with Adsense ads.
Hark! Just found another site travelppp that appears to be a clone of travelbbb - same Wordpress theme and the gadget to push up the Adsense Ad I refer to above.
I note the gadget says Powered By Pixazza and Ads by Google.
P.S. Have to some more research on this tomorrow but this appears to be a big stolen pictures farm with domains that use travel$$$ where $ refers to the first letter of a country for example using "p" Peru etc. They then tend to steal images from legitimate websites relating to the target country and stuff it into a scrapper site with Adsense.
