Dear Trevor Meeks:
It has come to my attention that you have made an unauthorized use of
our copyrighted work. 3 internal videos, created for our staff alone,
depicting our new packaging being opened, described, and dropped
from a 2nd story building with cinderblocks attached (the â€œWorkâ€). I have
reserved all rights in the Work, ï¬rst published in 2009-12-13, on our
internal servers. Your posting of the Work on the â€œOpen Source Photoâ€
forum (â€œOSPâ€) is in copyright violation and is distributing our trade
As you neither asked for nor received permission to use the Work as the
nor to make or distribute copies, including electronic copies, of same, I
believe you have willfully infringed my rights under 17 U.S.C. Section
101 et seq. and could be liable for statutory damages as high as
$150,000 as set forth in Section 504(c)(2) therein.
I demand that you immediately cease the use and distribution of the
Work, and all copies, including electronic copies, of same, that you
deliver to me, if applicable, immediately and that you desist from this or
any other infringement of my rights in the future. If I have not received an
afï¬rmative response from you by 2009-01-31 indicating that you have
fully complied with these requirements, I shall take further action against
Very truly yours,
KISS Wedding Books
I recently had the chance to cruise down and visit my friends Kevin and Shaun who run Kiss Wedding Books. I got to spend a couple of days tooling around with them and watching the behind the scenes goodies they were working on.
One big thing they’ve done is come up with an awesome new way of packaging their already awesome and beautiful books! Check out a few sneak peaks in these videos (and you might catch a glimpse of me as well):
Rumor has it there might be some even more epic tests of their new packaging to see just how strong this stuff is.
Be on the lookout for a new wedding being posted as well as lots of new photos. I’ve taken the Holidays off to relax and now it’s time for some fun catching up!
