While geekmodding, I came across a string of advertisements, and reviews, and the cover from White Dwarf magazine. These images have already been approved. This should be a copyright violation and I do not think someone should receive GG for scanning a magazine.

Links to some of the offending pictures.

I am curious as to why others seem to be letting these images through.

Covers have generally been allowed, similar to game boxes.

Geekmod will usually allow other magazine scans, though an admin may come in and retroactively remove scanned magazine ads (and reclaim the GG related to it).

I assume the scanned review would also fit that criteria (even more so, to my mind).
