Growl, screech, fume, fuss, etc, etc, etc. Insert Yosemite Sam temper fit here. I really don’t think I can be coherent in the face of such things as the linked story. Color Run STOLE a photo and is SUING THE PHOTOGRAPHER for daring to demand payment for his OWN photo.
To clarify, the photographer gave permission for the photo to be used on social media WITH photo credit/proper attribution. Apparently Color Run thinks this means they can use them in advertising and other non-social media locations WITHOUT even bothering to put a simple credit line on the image.
The photographer is raising money for the legal battle. Consider donating.
