tineye works a lot better too if you crop the image so only the part you think may be "borrowed" is in the picture. Sometimes the background and added details confuse it. Heres an example (I know the dragon hein345 is using is an amd logo and allowed just demonstrating the process)

cropped dragon: http://www.tineye.com/search/eb0012dd8d ... 2b9b5e7b9a

1 result vs 9!

Everything is getting out of hand eh,lol. If I can suggest anything, I'd say not to worry much about it, let the judges handle it all. Whether they pay attentioned to the rules or not is up to them, it'll make em or break em.

Yes, the judges will be the decision makers. I would just like to think that they wouldn't bend their own rules. Using copyrighted material is against the rules. It was very clearly stated and people violating that rule should be a little more concerned about it.

That tineye is a great site, BTW. I didn't know about it before.

Just added up 12 more and shot an e-mail to AMD letting them know a number of these posts are using images and will need to have written consent to use those images when chosen. As other people said if the winner picked is using an image they are not supposed to then they will be DQ'd. A few of the guys/gals in this thread seem to be keeping a close eye on this, so I don't think someone will slip through any cracks.

Sorry, but I am no longer going to be posting any images that are obviously not going to be allowed due to legal issues. I doubt Ford Motor Company is going to give you written permission by next week to use their logo:
