Default Walking Dead wiki weapons

On the Walking Dead wiki here: http://walkingdead.wikia.com/wiki/Weapons, a user named BanishU appears to be completely copying the weapons pics and even the screenshots that I've been putting up for their site. I looked further BanishU's name is Liam Michaels from the UK. Is it who I think it is?

Sounds like it. I would sugest that you send the admins of that page a note.

BanishU appears to be an admin on that site.

There are ways to report the admins of those Wikis. there is a link on the list of Admins. If he's reported as stealing copyrighted images to the people who run the Wiki service they might act on it.

I looked up it up too, and I think it's just a coincidence. This Liam appears to be a bit younger, and they maintain two separate Twitter and wikia accounts. While it's possible that our Liam maintains two separate accounts, I think it's unlikely.

I think we need to contact MPM2008 as those are his photos and he has copyrighted them. I was looking at the Wiki Terms of Use and Liam violated them heavily. If someone sends a message to their copyright people then just maybe we can get the photos removed from that site. I do know that the other users would be really happy with him for such actions.

It's possible he is just trying to be clever.

Part of me assumes that even if they had copyright info templates he'd just slap Public Domain on to them because "Anything you can find on the internet is public domain."
