Storeberg Invest & Copyright Theft
Storeberg Invest, actually Kristian Vik of Agotnes Norway is yet another dishonest website owner / dealer who has used our copyright images without permission.

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 (although they do not claim this) reputable company would resort to stealing images from their competitors?
We could not find a "Contact Us" page or "About Us" page of their / his website, only an -mails address
We advise surfers to treat sites using pirated images with extreme suspicion, and anonymous or "no contact" sites, with even more cuation.
We found a total of 11 pages on his website, of which 8 use our images.
The "Austria" page of their website features a consisting of obverse and reverse sides of an Austrian one ounce gold philharmoniker coin, sourced from our website, which we reproduce along with our own photographs.
His "Gullmynter" (Gold Coins) page is the same as his "Australia" page, and uses two of our images, and 21 which he appears to have sourced from elsewhere.
His Austria Canada China England South Africa and USA pages all use our photographs. Of all his country pages, only his Dubai page does not use our photographs.

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 Kristian Vik, owner of "Storeberg Invest" could not be bothered to take the time and trouble of photographing a gold coins, himself, or paying a professional photographer to do it for him, 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 Kristian Vik, and Storeberg Invest 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 or stamps, or your money?

Snaps or Schnapps?
We know that in cold northern countries like Norway, many citizens like to keep out the cold by the medicinal use of vodka or similar, usually know as schnapps. Perhaps while Storeberg was at our snaps, he was also at the schnapps?
We come to this conclusion because when we went to create evidential screenshots of his various pages, we found the page names were nearly all wrong. At first, this confused us because when we went to save the Australia page, our system informed us it already existed, until we worked out it was taking the names from the title tages. There is other evidence of poor website design, but there is no point us giving free advice to Storeberg.
