Celebrate Kansas City $1 Billion Shuttlecock Photo Lawsuit Supporting Public Domain

The fight for fair use continues against online image aggregators as a photog protests but bigger company defends its right to charge for stuff it doesn't own: "It's standard practice for image libraries to distribute content that's in the public domain. And it said it's legal to charge fees to cover costs including indexing, archiving, digitizing and making content easily searchable." Take a look at this case involving a local shot that we've all taken: Photographer seeking $1 billion from Getty Images

Wish I could get a billion for a picture of my cock.

Even Johnny Holmes/Wadd couldn't get that for his.

Damn I've got a picture of Mother Theresa giving the pope head. I wonder what that cock shot is worth.
