TYRA STEALS PHOTOS
BIG PHAMRA RECREATES PHOTO FOR AD CAMPAIGN
A LAWYER WEIGHS IN ON BIG PHARMA IMAGE RECREATION

  • Tyra Banks Steals Photos For Instagram
  • On a freckle kick
  • Taking and sharing multiple photographers’ photos WITHOUT credit
  • One photographer reached out via Instagram DM (@visualdon), and received no reply
  • Only wanted proper credit
  • Audience stormed to Don’s support commenting to credit photographer
  • Photo was deleted.
  • Big pharma ad agency re-creates photo for huge ad campaign
  • US Photographer Edward McGowan shot this photo in 2011
  • Has seen multiple infringements on YouTube over the years
  • Was alerted by a friend in Germany that his photo was being used for ads.
  • Turns out it wasn’t his photo, but a VERY faithful recreation of his photo
  • Not sure what (if anything) he’s going to do about it.

QUESTIONS

  1. Have you had one of your photos stolen before? If so, what did you do about it?
  2. If a high profile account shared one of your photos without asking you, but WITH proper credit, would you be okay with that?
  3. Do you copyright your images?
