It seems that Planet of Internet has changed ownership and management.
An unknown company called Pixoftware LTD sent us several emails to cease accusing them of copyrights violation.

We saw that you still didn't delete this post:
Please delete it as quickly as possible.
Then write these forums that we do not brake your Copyright stuation.
Here are the some links:
THIS PROJECT IS NOW PURCHASED BY PIXOFTWARE LTD.
Thanks for your cooperation.
In our response I wrote:
We will not delete any posts. The fact that the website had stolen ALL it's images from our community is a fact and we will not change history. It happened and we will not deny it. I suggest that you post a reply on those forums stating that it was an unfortunate situation by the previous owners and that you would never commit such a violation. What I shall do for you to 'clean your name' is write an article on PixelDam that it is under new management and that you promise to not violate any copyrights in the future.
Good day to you sir.
We have a response:

As you see now, the planet of internet web site is clean. We removed
your all images. Because we don't need them. Our Isometric Pixel Art
Department create all images.
There isn't any illegal situation from our part. But if you do not
remove (delete or change) that post, you will create an illegal
situation. This is not our problem what happened in last time.
Is there any copyright violation now? The answer is exactly: NO
So if you want to create illegal situation, Do Not Delete, Change Or
Remove that post.
We will not send you any e-mail again. This is our last Warning.
Planet Of Internet is absolutely clean right now. So remove, delete,
change that post immediately.
Thanks And Regards.
And my reply to this 'last warning'
2006/12/16, PixelDam email@example.com:
I feel silly having to exlpain this to you, but the specific post you are referring to is 'archived'. That means it is old news. There are no active nor current accusations from us that you are violating copyrights. Thus, there is no illegal situation on our behalf so stop whining about it.
If you read the 'active' news on our home page http://www.pixeldam.net/ you will see a new post about your current situation and this conversation. But, alas, since you are all wound up about it, I will take the trouble to update the archived post, denounce the violation accusation and refer to the new article.
Best of wishes,
