    Default Anyone here recommend an attorney?

    While in Denali this weekend my wife handed me a book and on the cover was a photograph of Denali. Same photograph other place in town used without my permission. Didnt even mention my name, or anyone elses name for that matter as to who took it. Can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is mine as I have the original slide and the cloud patterns and leaf colors are 100% identical.
    Tired of getting ripped off so this time no matter what it costs me I am hiring an attorney.
    Can anyone here recommend an attorney who specilizes in these matters?

    Default Possible Contact

    Randy,

    I have never requested this attorney's services but you might try Carolyn E. Wright (Decatur, GA), the author (and photographer), who wrote "Photographer's Legal Guide". You can reach her through her web site, www.photoattorney.com (BTW her weekly blog is well worth reading). If she can't help you maybe she can refer you to a local attorney who has experience in this field.

    You should be able to review her credentials, and any other attorney's credentials, at www.martindale.com

    Good luck,

    Tracey

    Well I figured hell, he must be handing the darn things out or something. Freebies are nice to get when you can. Ha ha...



    Randy, you know I am on your side and joking of course. I would be pissed!!

    Good ending to a messy situation. After a few emails the company in question paid my fee of $250 for one time publishing rights and agreed to add my name to the photo credits when the book is reprinted.
    Seems the previous owner was less than honest and the new people did there best to make the situation right.

    Excellent outcome considering lawyers run 200+/hr
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed
