BEWARE: Photographer Files DMCA Claim Against Ludacris Over IG Post

Posted July 21st, 2014 @ 2:54pm

Ludacris posted a picture of himself on the beach and failed to credit the photographer who took the shot.

The Australian photographer, Paul Pichugin, is upset because it wasn't his to post.

The photographer stated, "In general, it’s absolutely essential that photographers are credited so that people know who took the photo and who to go to if they want similar photos taken for a business or tourism campaign…

"There seems to be a very basic misunderstanding of copyright on the internet, that because something is posted on a public website it’s OK to use. That’s not at all true."
