NO CAN DO --Appeals Court Upholds Copyright Infringement Damages Award to Louis Psihoyos - David Walker: “A federal appeals court in New York has refused a textbook publisher’s request to reduce a $130,750 award that a jury granted to photographer Louis Psihoyos last year for copyright infringement. Psihoyos sued publisher John Wiley & Sons in 2011 for infringement of eight of his photographs. Claims over four of the images were dismissed before trial, but a jury found Wiley liable for willful infringement of two of the remaining images and awarded statutory damages totaling $130,000. At the same time, the jury found Wiley liable for non-willful infringement of a third image, and awarded $750. It concluded that Wiley’s use of the remaining image was not infringing.

JOHN HANCOCK DID NOT SIGN IT. Rolling Stone Cover is Weird, Wrong - Chris O'Shea: “On the cover of the latest Rolling Stone... Two thoughts: 1) It is weird, sexist and sort of pathetic. Why is Julia Louis-Dreyfus naked? What does that have to do with her being “The First Lady of Comedy?” It’s so over-the-top for no reason that it comes across as desperate. 2) It is wrong. John Hancock did not sign the Constitution, he signed the Declaration of Independence.” SOURCE: http://www.mediabistro.com/fishbowlny/rolling-stone-cover-is-weird-wrong_b209733

GRADUATE FROM FLICKER -- 7 Signs You’re Ready. Sarah Jacobs: Flickr can be great; when it comes to building a community and a following, it can be a good platform to help get your work found. But once you’ve gotten that first client, or even once you’ve decided to go after that first paying client, you want to make sure you have the tools to back up your chops. Your photography may be grade-A, but when presented on a not-so professional platform, you can quickly lose your credibility.
