  • Because Betamax would only record 1 hour.
  • And we meet again Professor Moriarty. Not "owner of the [tangible] photograph..." I can only guess who you are trying to identify and my guess from the rest of the sentence is that you mean to ...
  • You don't seriously think that a$$wipe revived the thread on the level, do you ? No you do not. I've read your posts before. You are not remotely that naïve. PS, not that I believe anything that ...
  • Merits a 1 on the Troll Meter (scale, 1 = pi$$ poor troll attempt and 10 = the art of the troll).
  • Are you trying to be cute ? They can open and close when they want. When they open they'll run it in compliance with the law irrespective of whether it conflicts with their own religious or ...
  • What's your position on metzitzah b’peh, buddy ?
  • Subject to a multitude of federal, state and city law all of which will trump your religious or philosophical code.
  • If you don't like the law in NYS, live here and then lobby your representative to change it. I have zero interest in debating on this forum what the law in this area should be though, to be ...
  • How about $240,000 for photographer and nothing for you ? Would that annoy you. If so, maybe don't sit in Central Park looking so good. In fact, don't strut around the city. Because you sir MAY BE ...
  • I wanted to add after taking another look at your post, I don't see how you determine whether a use is trade or advertising until you learn exactly what the use is, if that point wasn't apparent. ...
  • That is not "one big reason." It doesn't matter if I saw it. If I sat down and read it. If I shouted it out in song from the top of the fountain steps for all to hear. Could the NYS legislature be ...
  • I did. It made me smile as well. I presume some genius thinking, hey, maybe someone could assert a claim that we said we'd use their image and we didn't.
  • Plaintiff: use is trade or advertising Defense: no it's not it's incidental use, no its not it's newsworthy, no it's not it's [fill in other argument not to find trade or advertising use] ...
  • Same post every year.  That's how I'm sure it's October.
  • LOL. I don't think you have to listen if you don't want to. If you mean can they gather there routinely to do their thing thereby prohibiting everyone else from enjoying the space without the show ...
  • All your posts made me laugh.  Howabout the Krishna's that have taken over a prime spot in Union Square Park -- apparently forever.  And can they learn another song already. Your turn.
  • Actually in NYS "It's all based on" NYS Civil Rights Law 50-51 (we don't have a common law right of privacy). To wit, whether you are using someone's likeness for trade or advertising purposes. You ...
  • Doesn't work. Between the two of us I'm the only one admitted to practice in NY so I'm sticking with my view. You want to persuade me otherwise you need to show me specific cases. Good luck with ...
  • There is no way that show had a permit to shut down any part of C.P. let alone Bethesda fountain.  I'd like to see that permit. People would freak out.  Central Park is untouchable.  I can't ...
  • Send me $25 and I'll put you at ease.
