Jorge Saad of Mexican distributor Syscom has no qualms nor ethics about stealing IPVM content repeatedly.
We understand that people make honest mistakes once in a while, but Jorge Saad, despite repeated warnings, continues to steal our content.
It started early this year when he emailed us about our calculator:
"Hi, we're a cctv distributor at Mexico.
We'll release next month our iPhone app, we'd like to embed your camera tool in it.
I'd like to ask you for permission, we can have your logo an some text inviting to your website, I'm sure many México integrators would be interested."
We declined this.
Then two months later, he stole our Super Low-Cost Chinese Camera Shootout report, reposting it on his forum.
As soon as we found out, we demanded he remove it.
"Delete this immediately and confirm.
Your company has NO permission to use any of our content or resources."
We just do not allow vendors (Syscom is a Hikvision distributor) to use our material for promotion ever.
Nonetheless, just a few days ago, he copied another IPVM post and we found him taking image comparisons and using them to promote Hikvision.
We will not tolerate it and since Jorge evidently does not care to respect the law and ethics, we will at least make this publicly known for those considering doing business with him.
UPDATE: After this post and after Hikvision spoke with them, Syscom has removed the stolen content. If anyone sees or hears of any other issues, please report them to us.
