    Hi I am posting because I've noticed this user: Kaitheman9898 reposting a lot of things that other people have posted for free, but charging for them. I wasn't sure where else to post.

    @tesAuthorTeam
    Please see the post above.

    @Adasgupta
    You can use the report button on any resources that you know are the work of others.

    Thanks for posting this, I found one of my free resources that he had copied as well. I think it would be good to have some kind of 'report copied resource' button. At the moment the only way I have found it to email TES directly.

    I may be being melodramtic here, but isn't what he is doing actually illegal? Plagiarism makes me so angry...

    I highlighted this user a few days ago but the moderators chose not to publish my post. No doubt they will choose not to publish this one either! Not a good sign when more effort is given to censoring reporting than dealing with theft. I emailed TES directly too, so no excuse.

    This resource even states that it has been taken from somebody else. In fact it has been stolen from another user on TES. Even the description has been copy and pasted.

    They are also selling resources freely available on other websites-the year 6 SPAG underground map being a good case in point, again using the original author's description

    That's outrageous and so obvious with some of their resources

    Oh dear. Shameless behaviour. And yet TES have not shut him down. Gonna see a lot of this sort of thing I fear.

    I do think they need someone to be in charge of checking paid resources when they're uploaded. Like they should have to be approved before they are available for purchase.

    A "report copyright infringement" button (as used on ***) on every resource page would make it easier to report people who are stealing others' resources.

    Quite a big job, but I agree, even if it means there is a delay before resources are made available.
