My Rights have been Infringed

16 September, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

no no no… this is not about SoETT. has nothing to do with curfew. it has to do with a Trinidad and Tobago Media Group taking something i shot and using it without my permission. Yes it is on YouTube. No they cant just use it. Under the License i set, it can only be used by YouTube and well me. no one else. i didnt set an Creative Commons Attribution to it coz well… i was looking at creating and selling stock footage to earn some income.

original video

this so reminds me of Mark Lyndersay‘s series on You Stole My Photo

the report filed by Roger Dwarika is between 21:50 – 24:16 and the full news hour can be seen here. i just ripped the part i wanted to use like Kaplinsky

    Send them an invoice and a legal letter. Invoice at three times the rate you would have used.

    P.S but is Roger the producer as well? May not be his doing.

      not sure. either way his name is on the report that used my material without permission. thereby forever linked with copyright infringement.
