Default Corbis Wins Injunction Against TemplateMonster Web Sites

The Corbis photo agency has filed a lawsuit against TemplateMonster.com and Ultravertex.com, web sites it claims are engaged in large-scale piracy of stock photos. The lawsuit, filed in the Federal District Court in the Southern District of Florida, seeks $109 million in damages.

Corbis accuses TemplateMonster of selling web site templates that include Corbis stock photos, thereby infringing on Corbis's copyrights and encouraging customers to do the same. It also accuses Ultravertex of running a stock photo subscription service priced at $49.95 for a six-month membership that re-licensed Corbis photographs without authorization. In total, 623 Corbis images were available through the sites, the lawsuit says.
Much more here

What a surprise, when you consider that they (templatemonster) are usually quick to prosecute anyone found to be using their images in templates or in any site design graphics.

When I consider the number of sites I have reported to them in the past, it comes as rather a shock to me that they are in this predicament now
