Looked up the link above. No mention of punitive damages. What's your point?
I just discovered that the person corresponding with me is the producer of the newscast. This person has won awards for their excellence in journalism.
I'm really thinking there has been a misinterpretation of copyright laws but then, I tend to think really nice things about most people. But you would think a senoir producer working in media would know all about copyright... wouldn't you?
But you would think a senior producer working in media would know all about copyright... wouldn't you?

Is anyone else having issues with portrait clients "screen capturing" their images (even though they are watermarked), and having them printed via Groupons etc. for Shutterfly or similar? I'm finding that many high school seniors have photoshop skills, and are quite capable of cloning out watermarks with their "student copy" of Elements! I've actually gone to a client's home to pick up my daughter (3 months after their shoot)...to find several framed 16x20's on their living room wall! After a bit of private eye work, (high school kids talk:)...I learned that the KID actually saved the day, and some bucks for her mom! No idea how to avoid this trick, because right click protection and watermarking CLEARLY miss the "mark" here. Frustrated beyond belief.

But I have since found that my image of a Columbian Ground Squirrel has been edited and seems to be somewhat popular. I had to laugh!
