I don't think such letter will get published.Originally Posted by mattlockit is with regret that I inform everyone that The Straits Times has not replied to the second letter sent to them. In light of this, I will be sending an email out to the Forum page.
So although nothing big came out of this, I am thankful for everyone who has supported the letter,and remind everyone to be aware of their copyrights and be unafraid to pursue the matter so that in the least, the paper will be aware of its readers' feedback.
email to Forum page:
On the 30th July 2006 issue of The Sunday Times, 24 pictures of bloggers taken from their blogs were used in a montage with the title " iwant2befamous.com", without their permission.
In light of this infringement of the Copyright Act, 86 of us signed a petition stating our displeasure, which can be found at http://www.petitiononline.com/STCopyr/petition.html
This letter was sent out to the Forum Editor, The Editor, the Deputy Editor and the Life! Editor, via registered mail on 7th August 2006.
As of today, The Straits Times has yet to provide any printed response to the letter.
We would like to ask if the sentiments of 86 people towards copyright infringement is not worthy of The Straits Times' attention. One would expect more accountability from a leading media publication in Singapore.
We express our disappointment at The Straits Times for its indifferent attitude towards intellectual property and the Copyright Act, and the blatant disregard of the concerns of its readers.
