They are tanks from TBAC, a competition arranged by ADA Thailand (Apr 2013).WOW.. that is pretty hard..
We have this saying in BG.I understand protecting one's intellectual property, but it's these poor hobbyists who work their butts off.
I don't get this. Pictures can go on IAPLC Facebook page, no problem.
You're giving out the right of that specific photo. Nothing else. You have other one where fish is in another form? Or created in a different stage of it's lifecycle. You can do anything with that ..... unless you're with the best ones where not just that specific image is protected, but they would like to keep protect the unique appearance for the party.So you give(unless you are a top winner) your hard work and intellectual property to ADA to help them promote and build their business eh?
Its only about the print appearance. Never seen that someone would be disqualified for forum, FB posts.The final pictures of the disqualified tanks have been publicly viewed since Apr 2013 here.
I'm trying to understand the reason they (ADA) did that. It seems they think
that magazine used the pictures to draw in advertising or something, even though
they (ADA Japan) had contacted ADA Thailand to inform them (the mag) specifically
not to do that.
On the other hand, you can, of course, think that posting images onto facebook
can generate income from ad as well. Well, up to you.
Since ADA is not using signed agreements or release forms like AGA then by all means they do not have copy right to anything.You're giving out the right of that specific photo.
Its a common practice in the states, but i rarely seen elsewhere when i worked in the creative agency world.Since ADA is not using signed agreements or release forms like AGA then by all means they do not have copy right to anything.
Still rules are rules.
It is a common ego problem. Folks too much in a hurry to measure their noodles, get famous, rip glory.Everybody knows the rules.. so they should have stuck to it.. simple as that..
Had my works been on top 300, I would have waited till release them.. simple as that. Top 100? No way I would even post it on facebook or forums.. top 30? Man, not even I would look at it..
Well the gentlemen from Japan have kicked in the as 5 contestants and exactly for what?Its a common practice in the states, but i rarely seen elsewhere when i worked in the creative agency world.
It is a gentleman agreement between IAPLC and the contester. Noone will go to the court with this. Still rules are rules.
Personally i would act much harder on other stuff like photoshop things etc. Publicity is always good no matter how this happens.
But negative campaign also good for marketing just a pr article and everyone talks about it for a week at least.
