Venice, CA – Doniger / Burroughs has brought a copyright infringement and DMCA action on behalf of photographer Kevin Pack (Silvertip Partners) against various media outlets for the unauthorized use of his photographs and the removal of his copyright attribution information.
Mr. Pack, a former firefighter who works closely with Cal-Fire to photograph wildfires, allows his photographs to be used by news outlets in connection with reporting on the fires photographed provided his copyright management information is retained. When he found his images being commercialized, used with altered or removed copyright information, and used in connection with unrelated fires, he took action.
The case is currently pending in U.S. District Court – Central Division of Los Angeles, and is being handled by Stephen M. Doniger and Howard Han of Doniger / Burroughs. For more information, call Grace Garcia at (310) 590-1820
