Find A Grave owner Jim Tipton is a thief he creates a website for members to add burial information thus creating so called "memorials" he uses these memorials for ad space and charges members to sponsor these memorials.He makes hundreds of thousands of dollars a year from the deaths of others loved ones and provides no service to the survivors.

He and his administration have a set of so called "faq's" that only apply to a few. Find A Grave members constantly steals obituaries, steals photos and information from newspapers, websites and funeral homes. Information provided by the family to the various media with permission for the information to be used only in those media forms NOT Find A Grave.

Find A Grave is notorious for violating copyrights and allowing its members to violate copyrights.Members are out thousands of dollars from their free work so that Jim Tipton can make a profit. 2d8f5a6

please note that the f.a.g faq's stands for frequently ask questions and the answers to those questions have been changed 3 times in the last year. people are confusing the abbreviation of frequently ask questions "faq's" as facts and that are far from FACTS!

I have seen actual newspapers obituaries posted on f.a.g., apparently the faq's only apply to some. I believe they call it copyright infringement. I know because before we had our Mom's obituary printed in the local paper we ask about it being copied without our permission and they said everything printed in the paper is copyrighted that is each specific article is owned by the author such as a personalized obituary such as the one we wrote for mom. It's scandalous for the people sitting home and taking photos and obituaries and posting them on the f.a.g site behind anonymity.

F.A.G.'s FAQ's states no copying of copyrighted material and not to post anything you did not personally write or photograph and do not have permission from the composer or owner....yet the site is full of scanned obituaries, copied obituaries and photos. Call any newspaper and they will tell you that obituaries, photos etc.. are all copyrighted. Funeral homes will also tell you that unless you are the one that provided the photo and information. F.A.G. is full of thieves and vultures. Family pays to have their loved ones obituary and photo in the newspaper, the family pay to have their loved ones photo and bio placed on funeral home websites. Family pays for the grave plot, family pays for the monument...NOT THE F.A.G.ITS ON F.A.G.!

F.A.Grave members are just people who don't have anyone to feel sorry for them. They thrive on sympathy instaed of standing up and cowboying the F--- Up . Do you know where you come from ?? Well then why do you think I give a C.R.A.P. who your family is. Well the truth is I don't and neither do the rest of the people on this planet. If you have this info and Pics then why do you need to show off. It is run by an elite few with the domain name being in this jeks name- nobody else. As long as your info and pics are on there they are the property of F.A. Grave. Get back on F.A. Grave and spend the time deleting all your Pics and info now. before it is too late. Copyrights of pictures you post are there property according to their diclaimer when it changes hands or when you are suspended for not jumping when the top 50 contributors say to jump.

It was a real blow to find out from another website that findagrave had been sold to ancestry. Considering findagrave is moderated by Jim tipton and several other administrators non of them posted on the findagrave forum of the sale of findagrave before or after. Jim tipton only commented on the sale after members posted their complaints on the forum. So much for the findagrave facts and loyalty. Jim tipton has proven what most intelligent nonmembers knew all along that he was in fact a thief, liar and greed driven cult member.

You can't steal something that isn't owned by someone. Prove to us that someone else owned something he stole and then call the cops. Otherwise STFU you bored ret4rd
