No, my guess is that you're looking at the hijacked domain, libtiff.org. Please go to the second google link instead... http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/

Thanks for reminding me what's the issue. I completely forgot libtiff.org has been hijacked domain.

Hijacked! That sucks. Is there no legal recourse available?

I was wondering why libtiff.org showed different versions than www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/. How are users meant to know that libtiff.org is not the real web site of the libtiff project? The real web site makes no mention of it...


The real web site does not reference libtiff.org any more - that's the main clue. Beyond that how much point is there in talking about the hijacked site to people who have made it to the real site?

Whether or not there might be legal recourse, it isn't worth it to us (or at least me) to pursue, and our claim might be weak. Just one of those things that sucks.
