Click on the Full Size and then see the Passport Image from a file picture of Mints’ Web Page (not available anymore) I hope they find my use of the screen shot a fair use.
That passport picture belongs to me. They have taken it down from the website now.
By now this is the second time I am dealing with the Hindustan Times.
I know who to write to.
They immediately acknowledge the mistake and offer to take that image down, as if that would be enough.
When I retort that I need compensation and credit, they say they will not use the picture but give me the money.
I have to ask how much,
They say 2K and it is high because this is a plagiarized image.
Like a fool who is hard pressed for time I agree, I am equally the culprit.
This is a very hurried post as I am out of town for work. More thoughts on this when I come back.
And I am waiting to hear more from Spicejet too but that is another story and a little different than the straight lifts.
