  • Reread the cases that rdefen provided to you.  They accurately state New York law on the issues.  You have an opinion, which is fine, but your opinion is contrary to what the law actually allows.
  • Does the case law under section 50-51address whether the use of someone's likeness in a TV show or motion picture is a use "for trade purposes"?  It seems to me that that question needs to be ...
  • What utter nonsense. You are essentially arguing that, "she called me a name, so I am allowed to lie about it to make my point, but you still HAVE to believe everything else I wrote, or YOU are a ...
  • If you hold your mouse over each bar of the graph on your challenge entry, you can see how many votes were received for that rating:
  • The more you attempt to deflect attention from the inaccuracy of what you wrote in your original post, the less inclined I am to believe anything you've written.  So you can keep trying to prod me ...
  • Your original post claimed that she made more than one such allegation in her original disqualification message. You are correct that I do not know what she said in subsequent posts, but I am not ...
  • Here is what you said: "The host of the challenge sent me a private message, saying that he or she had checked the EXIF of the photo (the wrong dated EXIF), and had disqualified my photo since I ...

  • You asked Erik what he would do if someone were photographing his house at 4 AM.  His response was, "Nothing."  How, exactly, is that an "emotional response of rage"?
  • Replied in Social media

  • Replied in Social media
    This is a different question from the question of whether uploading copyrighted material constitutes infringement in the first place. As to the question of whether uploading copyrighted material ...
  • Replied in Social media
    I agree with almost everything else you wrote, but note that Congress did in fact address remuneration to some extent in the fair use exception in Section 107 of the Act, which makes "the purpose ...
  • Replied in Social media
    This example doesn't support your argument. As Judge Posner wrote in Flava Works, Inc. v. Gunter: " Uploading a video to the Internet is commonplace and simple to do. ... Uploading is the source of ...
  • You've posted to this thread 14 times to complain about how other people crave attention.  You really don't see the irony in that?

  • It may well be that they have absolutely nothing to hide, but simply do not wish to be in your pictures.  Is that concept really so hard for you to understand?
  • You might just be seeing the effect of the larger aperture on the wide shot.  What happens if you keep the focal length the same, but start with the aperture wide open and then progressively stop ...
