EPIC ERIC BOWERS COPYRIGHT FIGHT!!!
Interesting note about the adventures of Kansas City's greatest photog . . .
ERIC BOWERS IS IN THE MIDST OF AN EPIC KANSAS CITY COPYRIGHT FIGHT OVER HIS PHOTOS!!!
The images he creates are always in demand and it seems that more than a few local companies are playing fast and loose with rules regarding fair use i.e. they're using his hard work to make a buck for themselves . . . And so, Mr. Bowers has taken to calling out and, even better, sending SURPRISE INVOICES (!!!) to offenders . . . Here's an update on how it's going from our favorite photog . . .
"So far I have walked into one place and delivered an invoice for $1270, which I’m supposed to receive in 10 business days or less. There’s a local guy I’ve dealt with in person before who I’ve pretty much caught red-handed in blatant copyright abuse as well - and I am planning on paying his office a visit this coming week."
Look but don't touch Eric's awesome work @ his photo blog . . . And we offer this note as just a bit of insight into the rough and tumble world of local art & biz.
