#354160 Threatening to violate copyright. At least they're upfront about it!

Posted by Poliwog on 08 November 2014 - 07:37 AM

You might be asking your friend at the lab to place himself in legal jeopardy by printing those files she lifted.


This may or may not blow itself up into something a whole lot bigger, but if it does, he could be held liable for copyright infringement as well.


If it did go to court, he would undoubtedly be called as an accessory to the infringement. He would definitely have to have legal representation which would be costly.


Some, if not most, photo labs have policies about printing files that do not belong to you and if your friend is a reputable printer, he will probably have a similar policy in place.


This individual that wants your prints for nothing is just thinking about herself and not you. I would cut her loose and have nothing more to do with her if I were you.

#345900 The Daily Planet Show, Discovery Channel Canada

Hi Kaj,

Discovery Channel is owned and operated by Bell Media, the same people who own Bell Telephone, The Globe and Mail newspaper, Bell Satellite TV, the CTV Television network, Bell Mobility Cellular and various other smaller companies.

One of the companies that you might be interested in is "Exploration Productions" which produces the "Daily Planet" show that you are having trouble with. Their webpage is located here at:


A further internet search lists their physical address as:

Exploration Production Inc
9 Channel Nine Crt
Scarborough, ON M1S 4B5, Canada
Phone: (416) 332-5700

I would like to help you further but a very urgent family matter will be taking up most, if not all, of my time for the next several weeks.

Good luck with your inquiries, hope it works out well for you. Please keep us posted as to how if goes for you.

P.S. As a last resort, you may want to contact "Imagerights". They specialize in recovering fees for photographers who have had their images used in unauthourized manners without compensation. I have heard varying opinions on their effectiveness and have no personal experience with them but it might be worth a try. Their website is listed here:

Smile recognition on a friends camera worked on a flash of female breasts, during a rather drunken last night of a dive trip in Gozo smile.gif

HA HA! I knew there would be a use for it somewhere! :)

#231044 Second hand strobes

Try manually firing the strobes with just a paper clip and no sync cords, it may just be a sync cord problem. Sync cord wiring diagrams can be found on the Ikelite website Here. The diagrams are about half way down the page.
