Today while I was surfing the web to see the works of amateur artists, I noticed on a website called Lulu.com that he is tryiong to sell the card with my picture on it! Further more, this jerk got it copyrighted!
I have looked up the laws concerning this violation to privacy and it is a felony in New York State to use someone's picture for exhibition or sale without a written model's release! He also has for sale a picture of an ex-girlfriend of his and her friend dressed in Hawaiian fatigue. If anyone knows the names of these young women, please contact them and give them the info listed on this report.
I have left messages on 2 attorney's machines tonight and hopefully will get to meet with them by this weekend. I have also emailed the webmaster of Lulu.com and told him about this. It is listed in their terms that all photos of private people must be put on with the model's consent. Any violation to their rules will result in the loss of Lulu.com membership and could be referred to by the authorities (which I'm hoping).
I will update this report next week.
