This isn’t news, it happened a couple of months ago, but I must have been away or had my head buried in Greek ruins at the time, because I missed it. Basically, a photo or two of Anton Sheker was apparently used in a newspaper article and not credited to him, read about the entire episode here. He then tried to bill them for its use, he wasn’t paid, was then apparently threatened with a criminal lawsuit, and he has fought back by filing a copyright infringement and damages suit against the newspaper. GOOD ON YOU ANTON! It’s about time that newspapers et al understand that stealing a photograph or using it without permission is in fact WRONG. I have had several pictures “stolen” or used without permission from this blog before, but in all cases that I was aware of, I was able to extract apologies, get the photos removed, etc. so a lawsuit wasn’t necessary. But I fully support Anton’s (even though I don’t know him from Adam) cause, and I hope the case prospers in his favor. I would also ask readers to remain vigilant when they read newspapers, magazines and other media and they spot photos that appear to have come from another uncredited source… I know that is how I found out about a lot of the photos that were taken from my blog in the past. Good luck with the case Anton!
