I went to the wayback archive site and checked out Acme Audio's website and here is a real photo of his work bench, I like the refrigerator shelving unit. I guess his test equipment runs hot.. :-)

His industrial shelving behind him must consist of milk crates and wood from old pallets...

Hey Sal, did you get permission from him before posting those photos here? Smile Smile :0

Will you be sharing with us how you got them to do that?

Let's see how long it takes Wile E. Coyote to realize his Acme Audio site is down and for him to contact the provider for a reason why... will he be surprised??

I got a feeling that wasn't his day job as much as he wanted it to be.

I guess it's back to the old test equipment locker (refrigerator) picture for Integrity Boy affraid

Just send him and his webhost a DMCA takedown notice, easy to do, very effective
Here's a sample copy:
DMCA Takedown notice

Do a Whois search. The results should give the owners address and his web hosting company.
The web hosting company did not do anything the first day so I sent them a bill worded as follows:

*****************

My rate for commercial use of the photo is $100.00 plus $1.00 for each day it has been used.
The page and photo has been in use on your server since Wednesday, August 12, 2009. (434 days).

If the photo is not removed today I will expect payment of $534.00 for the past use and a advanced 1 year non-refundable payment of $365.00 for any further use.

Payment may be sent to:

(Your address here)

I understand that Bluehost did not post the photo but since your client has not responded and you have not removed the photo after several requests I will expect payment from Bluehost if the photo is not removed immediately.

The simple solution is for you to remove the photo by the end of business today and inform your client of the violation.
*****************

Seemed to work. Smile

Clear your browser cache. You're pulling up a cached version. The actual site is gone.

Steve,
One more question, how did you know the photo was used since 2009?

Just read through this thread. Glad to see "refrigerator man" shut down. Looks like business is not so good so I guess Einstein, De Forest and Armstrong will be looking for work. Smile

In response to my DMCA takedown notice, the UK company has also removed my photo.

Sal,
In some web browsers (I use FireFox) right click on the page and select "View Page Info".
It will show the date the page was last modified or updated.
On other browsers Page Info might be in one of the drop down menus at the top.

Okay, three pages worth if this so far.

This only goes to show -- keep a messy workbench, nobody will steal your photos. In fact I don't even post a photo of my bench on my OWN website!

Things are slow right now -- should I clean the place? Naaah!

No, the test equipment is filling up the shop AND garage. Half the radios around here are in the trunks and back seats of cars. That's why I have four of them . . .
