Isn't imitation the sincerest form of flattery?

Maybe not.....

I've had the same thing in the past with photographs. Once they're out there it's probably too late.

I totally dig that thermal imaging camera nowadays, I didn't see need for it before but it's hugely helpful.
I also recognised the guru3d test rig.

the solution is one that many others have already used for a long time:
Splash (or watermark) the guru3d logo diagonally across all used photo's (including benchmarks)

Of course it's stupid that you have to brand your own property in that obvious fashion but, in the outside world this has also been needed to since the 80's.

I can remember a time where the front door could stay open all day and night and nothing.
Now you have to brand your kids coats and bags, just so others don't run off with it and thats just a small example of the necessary changes required to keep your personal property personal but as everyone can see......jackers jack more, hackers hack more...and now even reviews get stolen.....what is next...tooth robbery?

Can you imagine what a thermal imaging camera has costed Hilbert?
Now that spend time AND money is just stolen and used like that.

Intellectual property theft is also something that you bang a person head against the wall for

We did so in the past but it just looks bad to have logo's inside charts and photo's. I might have to revisit that choice it though, this is happening more and more.

it's way obvious the guru3d style so no need for that thankfully, imo.

Perhaps you could put a guru3d.com texture on the background of charts or on the bars on charts or something.

And again, intellectual property is being stolen because the wrong doer is fairly sure he won't get sued. Strange...

As far as I know, this is a chronic problem in China where the idea of "copyright", explicit or implicit, has very little value unless the government gets involved, and in such cases they simply don't. As it's already been suggested, watermark your photos. It's a PIA but most of us would understand and clearly support if it means your hard work not getting ripped off especially without credit. Good luck and thanks for making us aware of www.fashaoyou.net disgusting unprofessional business practices.

Not surprising it being a Chinese website - the country in general has little to no regard for copyright infringement, reverse engineering, etc.

Nowadays there is no such thing called as reputation, it's all about money...wars about money, violence about money, medicine about money, food about money. I wouldn't recommend watermarking your pics, that's one of the things i always liked guru3d. When i was a pupil i had few webs about e-sports, and i was stealing all information from other sites, but it didn't live long, it just became not interesting, i shut down those pages myself, didn't get any warning. Btw, they also indirectly advertising guru3d, so don't make an elephant from a mouse.
