    I feel honored...
    I was going to watch 60 Minutes tonight, but instead wound up reading 46 pages...

    This is one awesome thread. So it seems that Sid has vanished. My question is who is still here that was present in the first few days (i.e. five or ten pages) of this thread? I think you're a part of history.

    BTW, when I clicked on the limo link, Sid's picture was there, so they must have come to some kind of understanding.

    I'm honored to take part in such a historic thread.

    Oh, and bump...

    C&C always welcome. I can't learn if I don't know what I've done wrong or could do better.

    I heard you can get your photos in movies by reading this thread. Is that true?

    I was watching An Inconvenient Truth this evening when I saw a very familiar image.

    They zoomed in a quite a bit, and made the taillights more red... but it's this pic all right.

    Now I'm torn. Not sure if it's worth a big hassle to get the $150 they owe me. Or if I should spend a lot of time and effort to hold them accountable.
    You should definitely pursue this. I have had copyright infringements before and I always pursue mine. There are other things to consider than just the download charge that you would normally expect. And I would suggest asking for a large settlement. This is Paramount that you are dealing with and they should be held accountable for an unacceptable practice. If this is truly the case.

    I suggest you contact them here:

    I would sincerely recommend to read a bit further than just the lead post. You may get a better idea of what has been going on here... for a couple of years now:-) mwink.gif

    After 48 pages and 2 years worth of writing, I'm feeling bad for Al Gore now ne_nau.gif! He has to put up with so many people saying they have the copyrights to his images.:cry You know, its not fair to him.:cry He crawled up onto that bridge and stuck his lens out that fence.bowdown.gif I heard he used a Kodak disposable camera though, hence the poor quality. rolleyes1.gif
