Potential plagarism by ST: Titan TV series fan campaign?

I've been following the recent fan campaigning CBS for a potential ST: Titan TV series for a wee bit now.

A while ago, the page admins posted on their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/StarTrekTitan) and YouTube a CGI video of the Ent-E going into warp. Amidst glowing praises by rabid fans, a YouTube user immediately revealed that A) the animation was a fan creation and B) he was the original artist and they stole the video from him.

After being called out on this, as well as not giving credit to the artist, the video was pulled (or at least, made private).

More recently, the Titan fan page admins posted this:

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

Again, no attribution or credit given to the original artist(s), and an image lookup revealed that it was cover art from an upcoming ST novel.

I've bought these issues to the attention of the page admins, who have so far deleted my comments.

Thoughts? Or am I making mountains out of molehills?
