Copyright gets personal???

Remember the picture that circled the internet of the stunned and confused Michigan fan after U-M’s recent defeat to Michigan State?? Well to add insult to injury, an Ohio t-shirt company is now using that image to promote Ohio State and profiting off of it!

The problem is, the company does NOT have authorization to do so. Consequently, this poor fan may now have a claim for the unauthorized use of his likeness. Additionally, the individual who took the photo may also have a claim. Under current copyright law, the person who takes the photo is the copyright holder. Click here for the full story!
