the_sidewinder: Streisand effect
DoomPaul: I generally agree. If I'm a photographer and take a picture of someone in public, I should be allowed to sell that picture. Like that famous picture of the Afghan girl in National Geographic. But making additional products on someone's likeness beyond the picture is going too far.
Warlordtrooper: t3knomanser: the_sidewinder: Streisand effectNot completely applicable. The defendant was making a fair bit of money off of Technoviking. While some of the demands are obviously ignorant (it's on the Internet, it ain't getting unpublished), it's not absurd that Technoviking should have some control of the use of his likeness. T-shirts, etc. are completely out of bounds and the defendant should have known better. The "well, this is just meme culture" isn't an excuse.The video was taken during a live event with the guys own phone. Your logic would mean that any celebrity could stop any pictures of them from being published no matter where or how they were taken. The existence of the paparazzi disproves thisThat's not how it works. There is no expectation of privacy in a public place
comhcinc: steamingpile: PainInTheASP: Huh, never saw the video until today.THANKS, TECHNOVIKING!He always seemed like a douche in the video anyways bullying those around him so fark off German douchebag.You know what other German like bullying people around him?
