Page 10


Here's page 10 from the Oregon FNAWS 2008 Spring Newsletter. What's wrong with this picture? Well, for starters none of those antelope were photographed in Oregon. In fact, all 5 of those bucks were seen in Arizona's Unit 19A. At least 3 of them were taken last year. Also, and more importantly to me, is that all 5 of those photos are mine and no one asked my permission to use them!

I wonder a few things, 1.) How much did the Auction tag go for?
2.) Did the winning bidder bid that much money because he was influenced by those pics?

The auction tag sold for 10k. I have no idea if he was influenced by those pictures. The issue isn't whether or not their marketing scheme worked, it's that their marketing scheme was misleading and the pictures used were used without permission.

Eli,

As I posted over on AZOD, you already know how I feel about this. Please let us know what the response is from them when you talk to them.

I am not saying you should sue, but something serious needs to happen to them and it will have to start with you.

There is just no excuse here. They blatantly lied and stole your pictures. Hell, one of them has your freaking name on it and they still published it!!

ELI,
I THOUGHT YOU PUT COPY RIGHTS ON YOUR PHOTOS?
