    Hi everyone – I’m a journalist and I’m currently working on a TV story for SBS focused on helping educate small business owners about intellectual property and would like to ask if anyone has had a bad experience which resulted for example in their business IP being stolen or used unfairly by another company. If so, please get in touch with me on private message for a confidential chat. This is for background and research purposes only at this stage.

    Thanks very much.

    Hi MsLinLin – my local council, [Edited to remove council name] in Tropical North Queensland, has stolen my photographs on a number of occasions without my permission and also without attribution – and yet for other local photographers they have given attribution ( and I would suspect have sought permission ). When it ended up in court for copyright Council filed a fraudulent document to try ( successfully ) and coverup what they did. Of course I have all this as direct evidence and more than happy to share it with you.

    Hi Paul,
    Thanks for joining and posting. Just a quick note to say that I edited the specific council name from the post above. We welcome discussions around these sorts of issues and how they impact business owners, but as per our community guidelines we avoid public disputes between named individuals or organisations as.

    The area of intellectual property is a big issue for creators of all types, but particularly hard for photographers whose work can be readily used.

    To privately message mslinlin just click her name and then on the popup click ‘Start a conversation’ and you can be in touch directly.

    Cheers,
    Peter

    I’m so pleased to hear the focus of education in this space. It’s something I’m super passionate about and feel more should be done to help educate, particularly for smaller and start up businesses. I’ve replied on PM to you [USER=111758]@mslinlin[/USER] and hope I can help somehow.
