    using a photo without the owner's permission is not acceptable.

    Dun give a damn to what they said, just do your best to get what is rightfully yours.

    It happened to me too, but not this big la. some macro pics of mine was used to advertised a Macro photography class. I upload it in Multiply and sadly it was my friend who used it w/o asking my permission. Incidently my friend emailed it to me. When I open it and look at it, I realized there is my watermark. Not 1 but 3 pics. It was taken from my multiply by my friend and she gave it to the organization. I contacted her about why she used it w/o my permission and she said she didnt know it was mine. I said thats my nickname and she still defended that it is not. Eventually after few smses and ranting she gave in and apologized. She ask if she needs to pay me, well, I give face to her and said next time dun take people pic w/o permission. After that she scared to check on my multiply. This happens 3 years ago :P

    Well, anyway just dun them face. CLAIM CLAIM CLAIM!!

    just abit of a side question, i believe if they the press win this case, other reporter may follow the footstep and do the same...
    the only things sph did wrongly i guess was "not asking permission first" ... credit i guess they did give bah?
    wat if they tried to contact the copyright owner and unable to get his reply and the pic of the celebrity have to be up on that day(abit like emergency like tat)???

    Anywhere to see the original version?
    I think the copyright act covers having a copy for fair use but I don't read anything about modifying.

    Hi,

    From what I know Copyright is an international law. Singapore is one of the countries committed that condemns copyright.

    I made some check in the past before:-

    1) If you took a photo of someone, with permission, the photo is the copyright of the photographer. else, you are infringing into their privacy.

    2) If you have posted in some website, read their scripts on your postings.

    3) Some websites would have helped you gain some monies for "selling" your photos.

    4) Did you delete the photo from your memory card? the EXIF info is there and it would also have your name/camera body...etc. That is one of the strong evidence the photo is yours and taken by you.

    I am not sure if getting a legal letter to them would sound feasible. Perhaps someone else have suggested...STOMP ? Let the entire community and all those in Singapore know about it.

    On another hand, why did you not limit your photos in facebook to only friends? That would have limited their access.

    Send them an invoice with a fee that you feel is fair, and the usage rights that you wish for them to have.

    E.g editorial use only and so on. Usually they will settle it pretty quickly and fuss-free.

    Also, remember to include the editor in charge of pictures or photos in your email.

    TS should fight for it. At least an apology? Taking stuffs without permission is stealing!
