Here's the thing. I didn't get those pictures from P2E. Yes, on P2E's myspace it says:

Had I got them from that website, I would not have posted them. I can read. I know what it says. I understand Copyright laws.
The first time I was told I could not use their pictures without permission, I took them down. I figured that if my site was told to take them down, that all other sites with them up would be told that as well. I was wrong. All other sites kept theirs up. That didn't seem right.
After that, I put up a video of the girls from their first ever concert. The video did not belong to P2E, it was a fan video. I was not aware that the attendees of the show were told ahead of time that video taping was not allowed. I was asked nicely to take the video down. I did so. P2E was not "mad" or whatever you want to call it at me or my site, they simply told me to take it down and further went after the girl who took the video. Not my site. My site had nothing to do with it.
After that, several new photos of all of the girls were being released that had P2E's tag on them. Again, I did not get them from P2E's sites. I put them up. I was never told to take them down. They were fine with it.
Later, Alissa put up some pictures from a photo shoot she did with P2E. Again, did not get them from P2E's myspace or Alissa's myspace. So I put one up with a link to the rest of the pictures that were on Alissa's myspace, simply to inform fans that she did have new pictures. Therefore, I did not take the pictures, I simply told fans where to go see them. Again, did not get in trouble for this.
So when I got pictures of Alissa from the show a few weeks ago, again NOT off of P2E's myspace, website, or Alissa's myspace ( where the copyright warning is ) I thought I could use them, seeing as how the last few times, it was allowed. I could not put a direct link to the source because not everyone would have been able to see them. So I did upload them to a third party source. I apologize for doing so. I didn't know I wasn't allowed to use them. ( because I did not get them from the site with the Copyright warning. ) They had the P2E tag on them. Most agencies I've worked with before allow their pictures to be used when they have the tag on them and are credited.
But I was told, once again, to take them down. I did so. And further stated that I had, in fact, emailed them at the email address I was given by the same person who told me I could not use them, concerning the "permission" I needed in order to use the photos that they keep telling me about, and that I had never heard back from them. That's all I did. Did I have some attitude when I said it? Yes. I apologize for that. It's extremely frustrating when you are not given equal rights as everyone else.
I am only upset because other websites that don't get the attention that my website gets, are being allowed to use these pictures, while I'm being told every single time that I cannot, and that I need to email them to ask for permission, but when I have tried to do so, I've been ignored. They are making it impossible for my site to use them by ignoring my request, which is being unprofessional.
Trust me, I get it. I understand professionalism, Copyright laws, etc. more than you understand. I've been in this business for over five years. I've dealt with photo agencies, celebrities, managers, etc. many many times. I've gone through this same process before with another celebrity I worked with and it was handled much easier than this has. So please stop making false accusations against me and my website. You don't know the whole story, you don't know the details, you are not involved. I'm sorry if you don't like this website. If that is the case, stop clicking onto it. It's as simple as that. But you don't need to go around calling me and my site names, spreading lies and picking fights. Grow up. Be more mature.
And to whoever left a comment that said
"A good site is made up of reliable information and the owner of this site should be more responsible because it could be sued for slander."
I don't know where you get off saying I'm not responsible. This site has NEVER reported something that wasn't true. Look up what slander means before you start accusing people, kay? The comments that are posted on this site, do not come from the site owner, a.k.a. me. They come from fans that post on here, sometimes anonymously. Therefore, any false information that is said in a comment, is not from this site. Therefore, you cannot say that this site is not reliable and should be sued for slander. And if they could sue commenters for slander, you too would be a contender in that, seeing as how much of what you said is not true facts. So before you get all preachy about things you don't know about or understand, do your research as well. Long story short, no one is forcing you to read the comments. If you read a comment posted by a fan, and it turns out to be false information, my site is not responsible for that.
And lastly, I'd like to thank all of the fans that have always been loyal to this site. I have become such good friends with many of you and I appreciate your support, loyalty, and help. I apologize for the drama that sometimes comes from this site. I hope you continue to visit this site despite some of the rude people that like to cause these problems. I plan on continuing to be the number one provider of information about all of the girls ( Destinee, Paris, Ariel, NMD, and Sara ) and hope that you will continue in that with me. As soon as I get news about Destinee & Paris, I will provide you with it. I cannot make there be news about someone when there isn't any. But please stick with Clique Girlz Media, I will be having exciting news soon as well as many more rares and exclusives that I have been saving for you guys (:
