There is an eBay seller who is auctioning signed astronaut photos. Some of them have's water marking appearing in the lower right corner. The marking is viewable when enlarging.

Is this seller infringing on SpaceFacts' copyright?

The seller says the signatures are 100% original. Then, in the next sentence, they say they cannot guarantee they are.

Auctions: 140420729076, 140420730378, 140420727781

The auctions are ending within 9 hours.

The watermark is the one Joachim uses on most of the pictures on his site. I am sure he will clarify this but some of the images are "copyright free" some are the copyright of others.

I have supplied him many pics (I'm listed in his "CREDITS" page) and in one instance Joachim has his "spacefacts" watermark on, for example, an image of Ken Ham that is actually my copyright but I think it more to stop people downloading the whole site and selling the resultant images on cd/dvd's but he knows best.

I'd personally love several DVD's of the entire image archive of the site without the watermarks for my collection.

All times are CT (US)
