Why Do Airlines Think They Can Take Our Images?

Thu Feb 13, 2003 9:58 pm

Hi All,

Following on from Derek's copyright issues with Air Omega, I have discovered that Britannia UK have been helping themselves to my images.  Pissed

Have a look at http://www.britanniadirect.com/bd/planes.htm where your find my 767 shot and if you click on the "view more" link your find another 4 of mine.

Lets just say the issue is in the hands of my solicitors at the moment  Acting devilish

Cheers

Paul

Bet they would soon see things differently if you tried to blag a ride on one of their flights  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Please keep us informed on the litigation process!

Yah, Air Holland did it to me last year.

At least they didn't try the "it's our aircraft so it's our image" on me, instead going for the "we got it through email and didn't know it was copyrighted".

Intersting Paul,

9 minutes before you posted this I was emailed by Britannia requesting my terms for a license to use between 1 and 5 images for their website.

Have they learned their lesson very quickly ?

We'll see what happens when I give them my terms  Smile

I am suprised that Britannia UK would take your images without asking. I didn't think they were like that.
