It is a bummer as many of you guys post great photo's, I enjoy the pron here, Rick's efforts are pretty fine stock work if you ask me.
Yes, people pirating other people's work has been a problem as long as their has been publishing. Thousands of years...

In this case it wasn't pirating. It was a misguided attempt to do a good thing. I've always found it to be a good policy to look at someone's "intent" before I got offended at something. From what's been presented here it doesn't look like malicious intent or someone wanting to steal someone else's work. Just someone trying to do something nice.
