BuzzFeed being sued for copyright infrindgement

Don’t for one second think that the owners of BuzzFeed don’t know the law. If someone’s registered, intellectual property is used without permission then that person, or company, has the right to sue for damages. Don’t blame the Intern for not knowing the law, someone at the company they are working for should have explained this to them. No one is born with the knowledge that we don’t stick metal objects into electrical sockets. We are taught this from our elders. If the future generations plan on being in the information business, they need to be taught what the law states and how to obtain proper licenses for image usage. Digital media is only going to continue to grow, with new and clever ways of distributing information. The people who create that information should be compensated for their effort.

About Jack Foley

Beginning my journey in the film lab business many years ago and was lucky to have some great bosses who were also great teachers. They gave me a priceless education into what happens to film during the back end, which in turn taught me, how to be a better photographer. Being a bit of a nerd I moved to digital capture pretty quickly and have never looked back. I do miss those long quite days in my darkroom, but I don't miss the toxic chemicals we used. I have shot everything form weddings to high end fashion advertising and loved most of it equally. I also teach at the Center for Digital Arts and am currently working on a new body of work that will, hopefully, inspire some and become many of this blogs topics.
