Ebaumsworld doesn't have a team of professional thieves.

The content is submitted. Think about that before you blindly listen to everything you hear.

I don't really get it either.  So that site is watermarking stuff without it's creators consent...stuff that was available for free to anyone anyways, only now it's hosted on another site too.  Not sure what the big deal is.

The big deal is that he makes lots of money through advertising. His stolen content has basically given him enough money for a television show.

...and a villa and a team of lawyers. He has gotten an insane amount of money for just a website. And theft has been proved. Several people have spoken out, sent his site the sourcefile to prove they created their picture, and so on. It was only after his page was relentlessly attacked he started doing something to credit the authors. Also, he posted malicious code on his forum, almost leading to the collapse of SomethingAwful.com's forums. Yes, he is a bad guy, in my opinion.

Was it a puppy?

Yes.

And if you're going to hate it, please don't misspell eBaum's World.

We wouldn't want it to get confused with Ebaumsworld, the last great King.
