Travel Photographer Wins Infringement Suit

One could probably start a daily blog on cases of unlawful uses of photos, but in the case of travel photog Robert Burch, this one has a happy ending for the photographer. His photos were unlawfully used by a US travel agent and when the case went to court, he won a $64k settlement.

This story from PDN states that, “A federal judge recently awarded Burch a $63,866 judgment against a New York City travel agency, finding that the site used four of Burch’s photographs on its Web site without permission.”

The story says, “[Burch] is confident he and his attorney will be able to collect on the payment.”

It’s nice to see one of these infringement cases quickly resolved in favour of the photographer.
