sorry if this topic is useless but I wanted to know if shakiragallery would be available again any time soon or you can't use the domain.
In some days Shakira starts touring again so I was wondering if the web would be up again for that time
thanks!!and sorry for starting a topic of this

It's the possibility that it can happen again. Pictures will obviously have to be approved by admins before being posted now. Isn't that the way it is in the Shakira.com community? I don't go there because, well, ya'll know why.....

I read somewhere else that Shakira's PR did all this on purpose so they can have control over the pictures that get uploaded to her most famous gallery. I don't know...

I understand why they've stopped uploading photos at the moment but is it really necessary to take the entire site down?

They should open it back up but stop all future uploads until they change the methods of uploading photos.

A photo agency paid hundreds of thousand for photos of Shakira holding hands with Pique which they were going to sell to magazines. Someone hacked into the companies servers and uploaded the photos to ShakiraGallery.com. Photo agency very unhappy... threatens legal action against anyone who uses the photos. ShakiraGallery was cited in articles all around the world as the place they were first published.

Wait, are we talking about the pictures where she's wearing black clothes and pique is holding hands with her and getting in the car?

Are those pictures so important? I've seen them in every magazine here and come on...they are not really kissing or anything.

She [Britney] does a magnificent show, but Gaga composes her own music, plays piano, sings, directs...The two that I admire the most are Gaga and Shakira. She's good at everything. She does choreography, dances, sings, plays drums, the complete package.

guys, when 60 thousand dollar pics are involved, we're lucky they didnt do anything to us. closing the site for a while is the best thing to do for now. but in my understanding, it will be back eventually.

The gallery is closed because we need to work out security issues in the gallery. Also we need to verify if there are more pictures that are not supposed to be on the gallery. We aim to re-open the gallery as soon as possible, but we can't tell you exactly when.
Know that we don't like the gallery to be closed, we want new pictures to be on the gallery as soon as possible. The tour is resuming soon, lots of new pictures are coming. As you may have heard or read in the press the police is investigating the leaked pictures, so we can't just ignore this. Beside that, sometimes it's better to keep low profile when everyone's watching you.

@shakiman you might want to think before you speak, apparently you have no idea how big ShakiraMedia is and what is going on. If we aren't carefull we can get into even bigger trouble. I opened the gallery 7 years ago and I'd like to make that a 7 years more.

It's impossible to control (for any admin) if the photos uploaded are legal or it don't compromise the privacy of somebody. The only solution is to introduce a legal notice that can free the gallery (the owner) from any responsibility for all the material uploaded.
You Contact ImageShack (is courios: imageSHAcK.. :shakifanatica54: ) or similar webpages and ask their legal guarantees. And apply the same guarantees. It is the only strategy.

I would re-open, immediately, the page without the function upload.

Yeah but it's something for them to spread rumors with. The press is such a disgusting beast. And holding hands is the most Shaki'll do for them so they have to try making it all up.. the alleged relation, etc.

Oh dear lord, what is wrong with this world?

Obviously it's just justin beibers work... hack the server, steal the photos, spread this stories about Pique dude, kick down the Shakiragallery site, then get the heck out of there. :shakifanatica54:

and the story goes on. At least we got famous for it before the site was down. :shakifanatica54: :shakirachick276:
Whatever the press says, it's the fans that count at the end of the day cause nuthin the press outputs lasts more than a week anyway. Of course the legal issues can take longer than that though.. I hope you're able to work it out easily, I love the gallery!

No, we chose to build in a report function (great work Xandrios!) so they legitimate owner can report them to be removed. It's too much work going through all of our pictures.

Thanks. Yeah I saw those pictures but they could be from the agency that reported two sets of pictures (one being the well known Pique pictures), which are also on that blog. So we'd rather not add them now.

[Well, the admins have searched for other skeletons in the closet. However then they also need check the uploaded videos for potential copyright issues.

Well we are looking into that, but it's kind of complicated. We already had a disclaimer like that on our site, but you can't always hide behind that.

That wouldn't help in a German court, for example.
