Mar 26, 2010 ... Defendant: Icon Global Artists, Inc. Beth Fiore Does No. 1-10 ... 1-10, Beth Fiore, Icon Global Artists, Inc., filed by Peter Langone. ...
Photographer's assistants, hair and makeup personnel, stylists, on set-digital techs, retouchers, companies and advertising agencies must be extremely careful when working with Peter Langone. He has threatened nearly every person he has worked with in the past from using the images to promote themselves of the recent work they have completed.
Creative Director Beth Fiore, is hired by international advertising agencies and companies to conceptualize, brand and create images for advertising and fashion editorials. Ms. Fiore has worked with Fortune 500 companies all over the world. Having worked with photographer Peter Langone over the past 7 years, she decided to stop working with Peter after he relapsed into drug addiction including cocaine and heroin use as he continued to refuse payment to her for her services. [continued below]....
Upon his last photo shoot managed by Fiore, Langone stole $3000.00 from her for the Unique Autosports ad campaign in Miami. Then, Peter Langone continued by stealing her cell phone, destroying all the contact information for her business and used psychological abuse against her while threatening her life. Pete Langone has also been witnessed berating and assaulting hired personnel on set.
In his latest attempt to attack her, Peter Langone has filed a bogus lawsuit for copyright infringement, after he signed a release contract granting all reproduction and copyright release for unlimited usage to Ms. Fiore's company and it's affiliates for an UNLIMITED duration and unlimited media at no charge. One of the documents Peter Langone signed granting permissions for unlimited usage of images can be found online here. http://iconglobalartists.com/Peter Langone Release.jpg
Every person associated with any assignment where Peter Langone is hired as a photographer must beware of his attempts to destroy the artists who attempt to use work they were hired to produce in order to promote themselves. Can you imagine being a wardrobe stylist on set for an ad campaign and the photographer sues you for putting an image of your work online to promote the project you completed? Peter Langone will go to any length to destroy you if you do so. Even if your name is published in association to the images produced. Peter Langone may take the picture, but he doesn't create the idea, he doesn't style the wardrobe, or do the hair and makeup, and he certainly doesn't retouch the images before they are published. There are many people who are associated in making these images, and the people who work on them have the right to display the work as their own for what they have done to make the images what they are.
Examples displayed in the bogus lawsuit were in fact created by Ms. Fiore as the Creative Director. After being hired to create the ads, Ms. Fiore hired Peter Langone to capture the images she conceptualized and created. Langone then sued the Creative Director Beth Fiore for showing samples of her work online. Fiore created the these layouts and compositions, she then hired and paid Langone nearly $18,000.00 to take photographs, and now he is attempting to sue her for displaying the work she was hired to develop. Do not ever work with Peter Langone under any circumstances. He will work you to death for less than $100.00 per day, berate you and then threaten you, assault you, and then sue you for showing your work.
This case will be thrown out of court.
