    actually there is no case here. It's obviously the singer's greed and stupidity.
    XMM comes to my shop, see nice things, trying to save some money, borrowed them to shoot nice pictures, promised to give me the images .... then what do you expect me to do with these images she gave me? expect me to forward to bro SION?

    From business point of view, if the bridal shop is not allowed to use the photos, then why would they want to lent the gown to the "celebrities"?
    Looks like a trap to me ... borrow the gown ... then give the images to the shop ... and after they use it, sue them.... $10,000 for each of the 30 shots, totol is $300,000. Noting that she claimed she received $85,000 a year in publicity endorsements., it is close to 4 yrs of her publicity endorsements income, sounds too good!

    Did she EXPRESSLY give permission for the studio to use the images in the wedding shoot DVD, in its coffee table book?
    Did she EXPRESSLY forbid the studio to use the images in the wedding shoot DVD, in any publication?
    She may have a case. She did not forbid them beforehand from doing something, does not mean they can do it.

    She wants money. She was lent the expensive gowns free. After using the free gowns, she gave a DVD of her photos to the shop.
    The whole case hinges on whether it was a quid pro quo for the loan of the gowns. Giving the studio a copy of a DVD to see her wedding photos does not mean they can use it in a commercial publication. But asking for $10,000 for each of the 30 photos means $300,000. Is her public image worth that much? After all, she is not an international Oscar winning actress or a famous singer with 10 platinum albums track record.

    Actually most of us here in CS never heard of her before reading this thread. So finally there may be 1 more motive behind this suit. She desperately wants visibility.

    1. WHO is she?
    2. To rent a wedding gown for a week or 2 is already not cheap not to mention she took so many....... what the bridal shop 'pays' in lending her the gowns has to logically be equivalent of what the shop will get back in return .... even implied

    And there seems to be more than a few precedents in the past with more famous personalities weddings in Singapore .... and the sponsoring bridal shops have used these personalitie's images for their own promotion .... everyone happy

    Wang should have had Wong sign an agreement with the appropriate clauses

    But at this stage .... looking for potential $300,000 when her endorsement income per year is so little ..... she is making herself look like a predator, cheap and scheming .... and paying lawyer fees to do it too !! lolzzz

    I doubt she did that (in black and white), else she would have won the case easily.
    On the other hand, the studio is experience enough to know that without stating in black and white that the photos are exclusive, they can justify using the photos given they are lending the gown which easily cost few thousand dollars.
    She is perhaps naive enough or think too highly of herself that the Bridal studio will lent her the gown for free in exchange of images on CD which they can't use at all!

    On a separate incident that happen a few years ago, there was this lady who approach me for a TFCD shoot together with her male friend who is so called an actor (or celebrity) with mediacorp but she doesn't want me to use the images at all. Sounds like doing me a big favor by letting me shoot! In the end, I simple ignore her email

    Ignorance is no excuse ... it's probably Nature's way of preparing one for grandfatherhood

    Not too long ago, we were in China, and a friend with his very beautiful female senior police officer volunteered herself for me to shoot in her private hotel room for some sexy shots. After 2 hours of hardwork, she asked me to let her copy the images to her pc. No problem, gave her the SD card and she "cut and paste" all the images .... how to ask the images back?

    Don't write anymore to the card, use image recovery software to recover the images

    Like when someone asks you to delete a photo, delete it infront of them and retrieve it later
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    Next time use a camera with dual card slots, then save the images to both card. After shoot, give her one card and you keep the other one.. both of you go home and stay happily ever after

    Actually you still have ALL the images after [cut & paste]. She does not know it. Any image recovery program will easily retrieve ALL the images from the SD card.
