PostSubject: Interesting situation...   Wed Aug 06, 2008 8:25 am

So fellas how many of you can watch videos on the TV portion of Inside Lacrosse?

If you get a chance check out one of the videos. Specifically the MLL season-Top Moments (7/28 )

At the 1:02 mark of the video, there is a portion where it's mentioned about the MLL Rookie class of 2008. The first mention is of Chicago's Steven Brooks and a short video accompanies the mention. Then it goes on to talk about Mike Lavielle and about Rabil and acouple other rookies. Well you will notice a photo instead of a video that is accompanying the discussion of Mike Lavielle.

Well it's one of mine.

This one...

It's actually kinda of a crappy shot but that isn't where the problem lies.

They didn't get the rights from me to use it...

It's funny that within a full month's time I already have a shot in the Aug. magazine. There is another shot slated to appear in the sept. issue (InFocus again).

But now this rears it's ugly head.

I don't think it's going to be a problem as I sent off a nice email to them about it. But I just wanted some of you guys to at least go and view the video to say that you saw it. Just in case (which I don't forsee happening), if they say it wasn't there and pull it down.

The problem that I am running into is that it was used, and I wasn't told about it nor was I going to be compensated for it. Who knows hopefully I will be able to get some decent equipment out of it, as thats what I asked for compensation.

So Im just asking for a little help if needed.

Thats it for now.

Thanks,
Ross

That's kinda lame on their part.

What's the link to the video?

Well the link that I tried to use sends you to the stupid video of one of the guys from the San Jose Stealth putting on a fu manchu beard. So that doesn't work.

Here is what I am talking about



But then today I went into the webpage again and on the main portion there are two more photo snippits of mine they also used.

Here is the link to the main page http://www.insidelacrosse.com/



Recognize these guys!




So I get on the phone to try to talk with someone at IL and was told that there isn't any budget to pay me. So I told them to pull the shots...

Hmmm are they down yet?

No.

Mad Evil or Very Mad

Great chance to make some money the good 'ol USA way. threaten to press charges...although then they may not want to do business with you anymore.

I'd just ask them for something of value to you, even if it's not $$.

DEMAND A PHOTO PAGE!

Every month your shots will be featued... sound baller? And you get paid for them too.

But you would think their design department would have copyright and what not on lock. Im an art student and would never jack photos like and use them how they were used. But clearly they are doing it for beneficiary reasons.

Or they just figured Ross would never have noticed, I doubt most photographers would have, so props to you for noticing it.

I best some plebe intern thought that since the pictures were technically posted on Inside Lacrosse's website, they were property of IL.

Absolute copyright infringement. With a good lawyer, you could potentially milk them for every hit they have had since using your pictures, which realistically, is a ton of hits.

I know your a nice guy, but I would threaten a lawsuit to get what you want. Also, I wouldn't disclose too much information on here, because they could likely use it against you. Facts about what is going on is fine, but don't express any personal opinion of IL on these pages.

Unless somewhere in the fine print it says any pictures you upload to their site are then their property.

Hey guys sorry I haven't been on here in awhile.

I have been in Indianapolis and New Orleans for the last 12 days.

Ok so as it stands right now I haven't been paid for any of the photos I have taken that are in either issues.

On top of that I haven't had a chance to discuss anything with anyone at IL about the photos that were on their webpage.

So I am going to deal with this today as I finally have a full day to get things straightened out.

One question I do have. Who out there has the latest (Sept) issue that I could see possibly and borrow for acouple of days? You will get it back but I need to check it and verify the issue against shots on my computer and then I will give it back.

Apparently there should be 2-3 more photos of mine in that issue and I need to verify that.

I don't know if Barnes N Noble has the latest issue and even if they do I really don't want to purchase any issues from them (IL) until this is all resolved and I am happy.

If you know what I mean!

So I will fill in details as we go...

While I understand why you wouldn't want to purchase one, if you can't find one the payoff if they stole photo's would be worth the few bucks.

Update: So I am to receive a check before this Thursday for the photo in the August Issue.

So there is a start.

The thing that I found out was the person who was in charge was out of town for 2 1/2 weeks so that is why the mixup happened.

The same person is going to be getting back with me before the mid to end of the week about what is up with the photos that were on the webpage and if I will be compensated for those.

So It looks like this is going to be resolved nicely. Which is all that I wanted to hear.

So stay tuned to this bat channel for details!

Good to hear that you'll be compensated, and good to head that it wasn't intentional on IL's fault.

Ok well you guys don't have to go out and do that as I finally got paid today for the first photo in the August issue.

So I am still speaking with someone at IL about the photos on the webpage.
