CONTENT THEFT assfire . com
It has come to our attention that a company who call themselves assfire.net or alternatively xxxmatch.com and cams.com has stolen an image published by us, courtesy of the TEZART website and illegally linked their own website to it; this image and link appear in Google’s search engine.
The company has instigated ‘content-theft’ by lifting a photograph belonging to TEZART (the artist painting ‘Temptation’ from ‘The Art Of Forbidden Pleasure ~ Tendrils’ series) from this website and added their own website link to the link and image, thereby directing all google search custom to their website, instead of to this site.
The image this company has stolen is above and the link they have attached to it is as follows; (warning: adult content within)

We (Tezi magazine) and the artist are in no way associated with assfire.net, xxxmatch.com, cams.com or any of its affiliates.
We have contacted this website and requested that the link be removed forthwith or legal action shall ensue.
We thank a fellow associate for finding this anomaly and reporting it to us immediately. Should this link remain active, or should anyone else stumble upon any other images belonging to us or any of our associates/contributors which have been stolen, published, displayed without our consent or knowledge or illegally re-linked, we would very much appreciate being informed. Many thanks.
For anyone else suffering at the hands of ‘Content-Theft’; here’s a few places to begin before taking ultimate legal action.
It seems to us more and more as we journey through the intermittent quagmire that is life that laws are made for crooks to break and not to protect those who stand in the right.
If there is one thing we abhor as much as a liar, it is a thief! Given a choice we would prefer to simply slit the throat of anyone who stole anything from us, but given the dire legal ramifications of such an action and the fact that this would create more problems than the very issue I need resolved, the only recourse left to us is to follow the laws of the land which these very thieves have hitherto broken!
What must be done, must be done, however…
