I’ve let slip numerous times finding photos cropped and taken from my blog before. But when a company crops a photo from my blog that I took from one it’s competitors to use as their own, this just crosses the line. A reader bought to my attention a picture I took from Lets Popcorn’s oreo which has been cropped and used by Popcornopolis.
Basically Popcornopolis took the photo I’ve taken from Lets Popcorn, cropped it then tweeted using the photo saying they’re oreo popcorn is amazing. I wasn’t expecting this from a brand this big but when there are barely any copyright laws in a country. This is the sort of stuff you end up with.
Update: Had a long phone call with Popcornopolis. Turns out they had a social team manage their account which did the mistake of using the photo. They did apologize for the mistake and everything went better than expected.
