    I've noticed recently that more and more (paid) resources on TES contain materials which have been taken without permission from other places. These include: pictures of well known actors, cartoon characters, and even screenshots of text books!

    All of us have used images in our teaching in our classrooms but uploading them to, or selling them on, TES and claiming to be the author could get you into a lot of trouble.

    Come on people.

    You're better than that!I

    I have a real bee in my bonnet about this and I have started reporting users for passing off other people's resources as their own and trying to sell them on here.

    The number of resources I've found which contain screenshots of the Pearson French and Spanish GCSE textbooks is quite astounding.

    Quite simply, it's theft.
