    I went back and checked, and the first post is in fact post #1. But based on Nikolai's comment, maybe this post here should really be considered post #523. headscratch.gif I'm curious what Sid thinks. :D

    I heard it was chilly in Atlanta this week. Maybe with the clean air, you could get a pretty decent image of the skyline at dusk. I hear the movies are clamoring for this type of shot.

    My opinion
    To sue you wouldn't get any damages so it would cost you more to sue than you would receive. In my opinion, I would confirm it is your photo and then market that your photo was used in the movie. What a great way to get free advertising to everyone who saw the movie, and maybe sell a few more images?

    Wow - has it been almost three years since Sid's images was lifted? Man must be rolling in dough with that copyright infringement cash cow from Al.







    No - wait - hold on a sec...

    Just think about the interest on the late payment alone! (providing the movie company & Al Gore hasn't already made payment) rolleyes1.gif rolleyes1.gif rolleyes1.gif

    Say, what? Even The Weather Channel? I used to like them, and now even they'd stoop so low as to rip Sid's photo? How dare they?

    There must be some way Sid could talk to them about it. Doesn't Sid live near Atlanta? And isn't that where The Weather Channel's HQ is located? If only Sid could somehow get some sort of compensation from The Weather Channel, from this connection.
