Private domain registrations should NEVER make it to the SERPS. Unfortunately Google is placing them in front of all the legitimate content owners with our stolen content. The few I have been able to track down are coming out of Thailand.
This is like a virus and it's devaluing peoples images when they appear on deceptive sites. It's sickening and Typhoid Mary is spreading the disease. Way to go.
It's costing honest webmasters millions if not BILLIONS in lost income and IP damage.
I will add, it's not just Google either, Bing is having similar issues. Simple solution: NO PRIVATE REGISTRATIONS IN THE SERPS!
