    Maybe the one that streetdirectory.com hired to fight their case
    against companies that leeched maps off their website.

    FYI the company paid them $10K

    However, it would be good to know what can come out of this matter, so that all of us can learn from your episode.

    You or your lawyer will probably inform the company engaged in the chatline advertisement and give them min 3 days to remove the pictures. Chances are they will remove the pictures and I doubt you can ask for compensation of any kind.

    However, I did remembered that one opposition MP (lawyer-trained too) also got some kind of damage when one resturant used his photo to adventise his resturant. The MP sued him and I thought he got some sort of monetary compensation.
    Anyway, good luck.

    thats chiam see tong.

    Streetdirectory is fighting a case with a lot of companies regarding the use of their maps. These companies has dealing with a few law firms too, thus the law firms involved will not / cannot fight the case for Streetdirectory (conflict of interest), thus streetdirectory got to find other law firms that does not have commerical dealing with the defending companies lor ......

    Oh... Thanks, you said it, not me hor...

    Anyway, Krik should restain from saying anything on this website or any media if he intend to sue the company. Let the lawyer or lawyers do the talking. Any written communication regards to this case, including what Krik said, can be used as evidence. So in order not to say anything that may affect the case, don't say anything is the best until the case is ended. However, if the company choose to settle out-of-court (assuming that the lawyers manage to do so), they might sign a non-disclosure agreement. Bottom-line is, we may not be able to know the outcome afterall.

    I'm not a lawyer. So take it that I'm farting if I said something wrong. Hehe... please don't sue me hor ...
