I have been blogging from my phone/tablet and haven’t been able to email them back (they apologized and offered a compromise) but there have been some new developments in the case
I was looking through my old photos and noticed that someone mentioned the owner on this video I posted long before the whole thing went down. So they knew who I was and they could have easily asked for permission (which I wouldn’t have given and they wouldn’t have lost all their money). Knowing this now doesn’t make me feel as bad for taking away business from them.
They claim they didn’t know the implications of using my image and want to give me credit but the fact of the matter is they look my image and altered it thinking that it would fall into some creative-commons loophole
I feel bad they lost money but at the same time, they’re running a business and need to learn right out of the gate that shit like this wont fly.
