Now THIS IS Inspirational
« on: February 28, 2013, 06:36:25 AM »
photogs can be asshats when it comes to copyright, VK Tylor is a good example. However this photog did it right...copyright trolls should make note...If Linda had done this with her "Brand" she would have made a much larger impact in a positive way,, instead her dash is getting trashed on a daily basis..

Most questions have already been addressed in the forums, get yourself educated before making decisions.

Any advice is strictly that, and anything I may state is based on my opinions, and observations.

That was a great article, add his name to the list of those who are doing it right like Jim Beam who sent the nicest C & D letter ever a while ago.
Every situation is unique, any advice or opinions I offer are given for your consideration only. You must decide what is best for you and your particular situation. I am not a lawyer and do not offer legal advice.

So, a renowned photographer was screwed by a retail chain.  The retail chain was not an innocent infringer.   I believe 35 photos were in question and all the photographer wanted was $100K donated to a charity which after taxes for DKNY would translate into something like $70K at most.

Team Ellis wants a $100K penalty for the use of 1 of her poems in a book where the book's author truly thought the poem's author was unknown.

Guess what Team Ellis.  That photograph is yet ANOTHER person who understands the internet and will make 100x more off of their works than you ever will because of his knowledge of how the internet works.
