FIFA is apparently like shark infested water when it comes to copyright.

Maybe for their marks, but I have a hard time believing a number and a ball are protectable.  That could be used for anything to do with soccer in 2014.

That's like saying 2014 and a baseball is owned by MLB.

Agree, but you never know with FIFA, Blatter and his consorts are corrupt as the night is black. A lot of power at their display.

on the mother ship (Getty) a search for world cup nets 588 images. All creative, lots RF, some RM. Does that mean all of those will be deactivated too? Editorial has over 50K images already and the event hasn't happened yet!

I looked because it dawned on me that Getty had some FIFA contract and....

Trademark holders have lawyers.  (In the case of FIFA, I'm betting they have lots of lawyers who are just dying to file lawsuits.)  Contributors don't.

Istock must have gotten nailed hard legally for some loosey goosey trademark, and now piss in their pants at the hint of another one.

MichaelJay took the step of using logic and examples to point out that there isn't an issue, if anyone wants to see a better interpretation in that thread.

Indeed, that was perfectly clear and logical.

And the mod dismissed it with a "that's the way it is" type of response, and then locked the thread saying the critique forum is not the place for such discussions (he himself being the one who moved the thread to the critique forum in the first place  :o  ::) ).  Brilliant.

Pieman as in Lobo? Yeah, I thought that last comment sounded a lot like him. Is Lobo still around?

Good question. I honestly don't know. Maybe he was given a golden pie and retired.

He's still around. He has avoided answering the question as to whether we'll get paid anything under the free month of subs offer and said subs from April will get paid as soon as they can.  ::)
