Copy Righted Photos
Jul 18, 2013

I considered myself a professional sports photographer in quality, but I do not make money from photography. Last week, I covered a little league game in Texas City, TX, which a pitcher was injured by a line drive ball to the side of the head.  He is suing Little League 1 million dollars. Today, I found out that the local CBS TV station, KHOU, Houston, used my my photos that were posted in one of my facebook page without my permission. I found out when another news organization requesting the use those same photos, which I refused. Do I have a case against KHOU for using my photos, which were clearly marked with copy rights watermark? As you can see, the watermark is clearly in the center of each photo they used.
