If the press really publicize this, probably this is a good chance to make Singaporean aware and respect copyright of photos, esp photos that are posted online.roti-prata or his clone ....... due to your lack of sincerity in your apology, we have informed THE PRESS.... We are sure you have created all this "hoo-ha" because you wanted attention ....not bcos you wanted easy access to the photographers' pictures...... Good try..think of a better excuse next time
Let this be a lesson to you and all those who intend to emulate you ....yes, I am stressing this again.
If you been to other local-based forums, you will see there are tonnes of leeching of photo or re-posting of content that are "stolen" from other websites.
Many pple have a intention of sharing, but never realised that they should not copy and paste everything, from text to picture, and re-post somewhere else. For me, I will at least post the link of the source and quote only a few lines.
this is one example where u see everyone copy and paste news articles from elsewhere, such as ST website, u need to paid to read these news at ST website, but by doing this, ST already losing $$. I wonder why ST never take any action about this
