It's been hijacked by a domain squatter and not under our control anymore.

Since the site is presumably hosting copyrighted material, can't someone with a copyright claim issue a take down notice, and get the TIFF information removed?

Graeme,

The libtiff web site material is implicitly under the same open source license as the rest of libtiff, and we can't deny anyone the right to display it.

In any event, the libtiff team does not have deep pockets, and isn't keen on pursuing legal avenues of enforcement (even if we had a legal leg to stand on).

We just suck it up and move on.

Best regards,
--
