    Default Infringement of Copyright - Cosplay.Sg

    Not my intention to start off my 1st post here with such a heavy note. As i think since they could have just took an image and use for their own advertisement, even if i send them an email, i guess would go into the spam box.

    (i believe this is the meeting point for cosplay.sg?)

    In view of the copyright act (chapter 63), you have not obtained my consent, the copyright owner, to use the following image in your advertisement.





    You have 24 hours to respond before i take any further actions.

    To address this matter. We did receive the above mentioned email.
    An email was replied to Mr. Andrew.
    Firstly, we like to apologise to the photographer who took that pic for Jesslyn.
    We tried to contact Jesslyn immediate upon receiving the email.

    To clarify the matter:
    All the other images used, had permission granted by the member/ staff of our network and was taken by us (Except for Jesslyn). As Jesslyn was busy and she cannot attend the photography session we arranged, she send us a few images from her own collection.

    Before the usage of the image provided by herself, we did brief and inform her about the usage of the image.
    We did ask her for permission and also should we/ or she herself inform the photographer of the image taken. She said is fine as it was taken for her by one of her friends. (She might not clearly understand the rights of usage when she had the image taken, thus caused the misunderstanding)

    Once again, we apologise for this misunderstanding to the photographer. We had already taken down the said banner and replace with a new one.

    To Del_CtrlnoAlt: my sympathies. This should be made a bloody sticky in every forum related to cosplay. I am not surprised that this has happened. This (picture stealing) is not the first time neither will it be the last. I've experienced it myself too earlier this year, when one of my pictures snapped at Cosfest appeared in local media without my express permission nor knowledge. I was damn pissed, but decided not to pursue the matter any further at the time since it was a few days since the pic had already been published.

    I just hope all cosplayers will come to realize this point and give proper credit to the original photographer where it is due. This is especially so when the pic is being used for commercial purposes or in local media.

    Correction, the photos should never be used commercially at all!! Giving credit is only with the approval for use by the copyright owner.

    +1 on ash.

    None of the photographs should be used for commercial entity at any cost, unless permission is given by the photographer ( that might, or might not, includes a request to give proper credit to the photographer )

    If all the photographs are free to be used for advertisement etc, the full time photographer's family later got nothing to eat liao T______T

    Please note that full permission and acknowledgement was granted by the cosplayer (Jes) herself before the usage of her own image. She thought she got the full rights to her own images as an exchange for posing free for photographer(s) who took her pics during that photography session of hers. (That’s was what she being told & promised)

    She was not aware that there are certain restrictions bound to her also. She did not sign any model release agreement with any of the photographer(s) during that photography session as well. Thinking that is a normal unofficial shoot. Exchanging her freedom to use her own pics for posing free for the photographer(s).

    Cosplay.sg did asked and confirmed with her regarding the rights, usage of image and even asked reagarding the photographer. Assuming she herself got the full rights, she commit to us that those pics were taken by one of her “friends” and she was being promised that she is able use the image freely. Based on that, cosplay.sg was ensured that is safe to use the image which was provided by herself. The rest of the images are taken by our own company photographer in our own studio (Which are paid for).
    Anyway, we will arrange for another session for re-shoot of new materials

    This is not a theft of image. We believed is a miscommunication between her and the photographer(s). This matter had already being addressed and resolved between those who are involved, including the photographer.
