How to Follow La Vida Leica

Our new (as of early this year) server is awesome and should have no problems next week. But if you'd rather... You can also follow our news on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Flickr, Reddit, Pinterest and YouTube. At the very least, it'll suck less than Apple's live streaming on Tuesday. ;)

Leica Rumors and Theft of Content

We've bitten our tongue enough times now, but this is it. We've noticed over and over again the theft of our content by the site Leica Rumors. Typically it means they glom our news posts in an effort to shortcut us (they admittedly have more followers, for now) and provide content for their site. For proof of this, look at the posts on that site, and then look at the posts on this site - specifically, the time and date of their posting. You'll notice that more often than not, we were first. But such is the nature of the online "news" business... But the thefts are blatant and obvious, and happen repeatedly. Now we've seen, directly, a second time this has happened and are going live with this story - which we've hesitated to post previously. Read more below for the full details and examples of all three.
