100% agreed, they should not be allowed to just steal photos. Lemme know if you need any help dealing with them. They may try a fair few excuses on you but there is always a counter foil to them....... even the old "cheque in the post" one :)........ he suggested that copyright infringements should be invoiced at three times the "going rate" ... we have to treat it as picture theft.
So they get caught out and pay a bit over the going rate - but how often do they get away with similar theft (I bet the maths comes out in their favour )good good!
still struggling to believe that national papers are still upto this!! have they not been proved wrong enough times already???
It would not only be good, its your legal right, It sounds like you've got it all covered but Like i said, give us a shout if ya need, Talking to the NUJ is a last resort but they should be a fairly good stick to hit 'em with if needed.Yes, will do. I've got a couple of Plan B's in case they're reluctant Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and it would be good if they're forced to pay for everyone's photos, ie. Gorecki, Defqon and Lost's too.
That'd be legit I'd think. It's a pretty safe way to do a money transfer. Faster than cheque anyway. Probably seems less dodgy for them than sending a cheque to some random bloke.Got a letter back from the Sun today, stating to give them my account details in order to make BACS payment into my account.
Anyone had this before? I stated cheque on my invoice, and the letter refers to this. You think it's genuine?
