Does that means even if they input in their terms and conditions with such clauses that they will not be liable or responsible for their actions. Even if it so, they also do not have the rights to infect our memory cards, laptops/desktop with virus. In the first place, they are forcing all of us who joined the competition to download our images into their laptops. We cannot submit virtually nor in hardcopy.
Would it meant that by adding a terms and condition, i have the right to steal password and information from your pc without being sued by you?
What IF someone who wants to sabohtage the company, shouldn't they have some pro-active action done prior to being sabohtage?
just like a bank with lots of cash, don't they install security alarms, firewalls, camera, etc. instead of sitting and waiting to be robbed? If a bank is without security, who would trust their money with them.
Therefore shouldn't they have pre-installed anti-virus and wiped out viruses before it spread out. If we are downloading using our own PC, then it will be our fault. But this time round, participants were indirectly forced to submit their photos through the organiser resources. Shouldn't they safeguard user interest since we are at their rented venue.
hope u win the complaint but seriously tough. This kind of big company...to go into lawsuit is not their style.but if u push hard enough,which i doubt so, their legal team will be ready to squeeze u dry.unless u have more resources than them.this is not a strong case.at best they give u sthg but that will mean they admit is their fault.and that is no telling if canon is at fault to begin with.
Anyone know if the laptops had antivirus scanners installed?
I do not know if there's any antivirus installed.
What I noticed was, when I was downloading my photo for the 1st theme, the laptop seems to go bonkers. And there's this AUTORUN shyt and the whole process took more than the 1 min stipulated for downloading. I suspect this when my card got infected.
Anyway, my card has been revived and my laptop is free of the the virus thanks to my anitvirus software detecting and deleting it.
Is the result post online? is there a website which i can view.
Canon has just contacted me regarding the above issues and have also viewed this forum.
Pls post your nick and virus if you are infected previously.
At least we get some post action remedy to thoroughly clean off the virus.
Stealing is a crime by itself, which shouldn't be excluded from any clauses. Now, I missed Vince123123.(Nah!)
I didn't take part in this competition but they usually have clauses to cover their ass.
Typically it will include clause like this:
If you bang your head while submitting pictures.
If the hall collapse and crush everyone in it.
By taking part in the competition, you would have to accept these clauses. Go read them.

Just curious cos my 1st time participating with my friends, we were practically "chase" out of almost every mall we went into (the security guards keep following us and reminding us no shooting, no shooting). Is this always the case? Care to share on how do you all (for those who joined before) handle the situation (apart from snapping quickly and quietly)? Rather disappointed and upset in the overall treatment.

Canon has already sent out an advisory email to participants about the possibility of their card being infected and to take the necessary precaution actions. They also offered additional help to those who need further assistance.
Good damage control management!
