And speaking of Flickr …

Imagine you’re 14-years-old and post a self-portrait of yourself on Flickr. A few years later, you find it on the cover of a pornographic DVD.

So, you have a copyright violation AND a problem with missappropriation of her likeness. Probably not a child endangerment or pornography charge, though. But the producer’s response is … well, let’s just say it says a lot about people working in the porn industry.

  1. Lindy,

    As I am not a “house whole name,” everyone, please steal my stuff. Hell, a monkey can take a picture, it’s not like it actually takes work. Ack.

    First link isn’t working. Flickr link does though.

  2. Lindy,

    Oh, this was the NYT a few days ago:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2007/06/04/nyregion/04citywide.html?ex=1338609600&en=40a14194a7027634&ei=5124&partner=permalink&exprod=permalink

    I almost felt a little sorry for the guy at first, everyone has their d’oh moments, but if you read the entire thing, it just sort of makes me mad. Disrespectful, inconsiderate, misrepresentative and unprofessional. Arg.

    Ok. I’m done now.

  3. Kelly,

    this disgusts me in so many ways

  4. Lindy,

    Well obviously that ran over. Link is on my blog.

    Cheers.
