    I don't know if this is the proper forum to post this. Isn't there anything that can be done about all these sites that leech of this site for the movie news our community works hard at finding or getting via photos and set visits? It seems to be a big trend for all these sites to take pictures and material we put up first via the news forum and not credit anything back here. Then their story gets picked up by bigger sites and only credited back to them. I'd like to know if something can be done about it, maybe making the news section hidden to non-members?

    Unfortunately, it's simply the nature of the beast. We cannot hide our news forum to non-members as that would not be conducive to growing our fandom. If people are truly that concerned about where their photos are ending up, they are more than welcome to watermark them.
