South Bay Gold ( of Torrance, California, USA & Copyright Theft
Perhaps we should be flattered by the number of people including dealers who continually infringe our IP (Intellectual Property) rights by using our copyright images, but we do not find it amusing, and will take legal action against any copyright thieves.

South Bay Gold & Copyright Theft
South Bay Gold ( of Torrance, California, USA, are just one of the many coin & bullion dealers worldwide who commit copyright theft by using our copyright images without our permission.
At least three of the pages of their website use numerous of our high quality copyright gold coin photographs without our permission.
Their index or home page uses six of our coin photos.
Their "Bullion, A Good Investment" page uses four of our photos.
Their "Sell Your Gold Coins" (shown) page uses seven of our photos.

Copyright Theft is Dishonest - Can You Trust This Dealer?
Using other people's copyright images is illegal, it is dishonest, and it is unethical. Using the hard work of a fellow dealer to sell the same goods in competition with him demonstrates an extremely low standard of ethics. We would not recommend anybody to transact business with this person or company.
Who would have thought such an honest reputable company would resort to stealing images from their competitors?
There is a copyright notice at the bottom of every page on SouthBay Gold's website, so they can't claim innocent infringement or ignorance. Copyright infringement is theft.

Trusted by Everyone? - We Disagree
Trusted By Everyone - SouthBay Gold is one of the headings on their Sell Your Gold Coins page. We would not trust these guys as far as we could throw them.

Sam Who?
The name of the registrant is shown as Sam kaoud.
In the BBB (Better Business Bureau) profile, the manager is shown as Samuel Kaud.
It sounds like it's ssupposed to be one and the same person, but does he not know how to spell his own name? Is it just laziness that he uses a lower case k instead of K for his surname?

What's Wrong?
It is dishonest and unethical to pirate and steal other people's work by using high quality copyright photographs without the owner's consent. To do so in competition with them is doubly devious. We can partially understand why they do it; it is quick and easy (but then so is robbing people).
In this case South Bay Gold could not be bothered to take the time and trouble of photographing any gold coins for themselves, or paying a professional photographer to do it for them, so decided it was quicker and easier to steal ours instead. They probably also thought we would not notice.
For these reasons, we conclude that South Bay Gold are dishonest and unethical, and we recommend anybody to avoid doing business with them. If they will cheat us by stealing our photographs, what would they do to you for your gold coins, your prcious metal or your money?
