Greeting Friends,

Just to inform you guys that I have removed all of my photos from 500px and moved them to my own gallery in https://templeszone.com

After 4 years of membership in 500px I found out that my photos could be easily copied from 500px server using scripts, this is clearly a Copyright Infringement and I've complained this matter to the 500px Support Team but haven't received any information back.

Since 500px is now 100% owned by a Chinese Company based in China, I no longer feel safe uploading my photos here, because, I've personally experienced that Chinese Company in China does not honor DMCA or Takedown Requests.

Only a few photos will be uploaded to 500px in the future and that too low resolution ones (max 850px longest side). This is to protect our photos from theft.

Regards,
