    I know, that's why I included the "evil" smilie. mwink.gif I've got no bones with the global warming movement. Better to be safe than sorry, I always say. I just don't appreciate Al Gore's cheesey attempt to sensationalize the cause. It's just grandstanding. Why else would he stand on a ladder making wild gestures and claims without ever actually citing the number?

    Let me repeat. The movement against global warming, good. Al Gore, bad.

    Darn thieves
    I was watching the said "IT" movie today and I now think Sid is right!
    Just a few minutes before his picture was shown, they used one of mines, too!
    Here it is:

    PS. What's weird, I took that picture in January 2007. I guess they were waiting for it and put it into the movie the very last second..

    Yes, Nik, please go see a lawyer immediately. I am looking at both a still from the movie on the right of my screen (as I'm watching it a 2nd time, pic in at 1:04:59) and this page on the left. They are eerily similar. So much so, that I'll bet we can extend this thread many more pages.

    I don't see any recent posts on this thread. So, I just want to say, Sid, your photo is absolutely awesome. I don't know how you could have thought that was your shot. Their shot is terrible. So dull and boring. You should call them up and see if they might buy your shot and update their tape.

    Congrats on a great shot!clap.gifclap.gif

    Hmmm, is that a bump?

    Did I mention I've been a Chelsea fan for decades. :cry

    Darned game was on Setanta here, couldn't see it. Sounds like a great comeback, though. They sure can score a lot of goals. eek7.gif

    seriously though wax
    after reading and sometimes :lol :lol4 rolleyes1.gif (thanks crazy dgrinners) through 23 pages of this I'm still wondering DID that limo co. pay you for the rights???

    (didn't think you'd mind the bump since you just responded yourself...I was getting worried and thought you really weren't going to check back until a year had passed mwink.gif )

    (all this because I got into a thread debating the use of much PSing in our LPS contests - - I personally love to PS my pics [don't hate me], have a degree from an art school, think photography is an art...sorry, wrong thread)

    but SID!!! ...about that limo company???

    Hi Amy,


    Much to my embarassment, the photo in the film wasn't mine (which is why this thread has been running for so long. lol3.gif)

    Thanks for making me have to admit that again! :bluduh

    Laughing.gif Sid I think your missing what they are talking about.

    They found what they believe is your photograph being used by a limo company. And they where wanting to know if that limo company is authorized to use it seeing as you lost out on the movie deal money.

    Surely, to succeed in getting retribution from a clothing company, wouldn't the strategy be to sue their pants off? rolleyes1.gif

    Yeah, pls give us an update Sid. So that we'll know what to do if (more likely, when) people grab our images and use them for promotion.

    And good luck, I hope you receive the compensation you deserve.
