Side-by-side comparisons of photos Babble has stolen for stories

this is all just insane to me... my jaw is touching the floor right now. i've followed the trail of posts to this particular blog, but starting with parentdish's post on the subject. as editor of a fairly large content site (parenting-related, no less) i'm just... in awe, i suppose is the best word. babble has always been pretty highly respected in the industry -- and now... wow. and, having the position that i do, i can attest to the fact that nothing goes up on our sites without the approval of a senior editor. we all know where our photos come from and who is collecting the photos. there's no way that a photo intern/assistant would have the freedom to just pick images willy nilly without anyone else knowing what was up -- especially considering babble's previous history with nicked photos. i'm so sorry this happened to you and the other artists in the same boat -- not only is the copyright infringement inexcusable, but the potential endangerment of your child is beyond disgusting... you have my sympathies...
