Default My car in a GM resto ad

My car showed up in another advertisement

http://www.gmrestorationparts.com/we...6YHNOXFJ05C&s=

All these pix were shot by a friend about 4 years ago and he placed them on one of those cheap download sites. He gets like 5 cents each time they are used .....whoopie!!

So they've shown up in..
Eastwood catalog...but they changed it to blue
CPP add....very small shot
Cragar Wheels...they photoshopped diff wheels
Billboard in So Cal for some burger place...changed it to blue also
GM resto

I think there was one more, but I've drawn a blank....

Hey, I think your car would look better in blue.

Well, he said is friend downloaded them some years ago. With all entities, such as TV, radio, print media(newspaper, mags), computer websites, etc, there's always a disclaimer that says in so many words, "ALL PICS, VIDEOS AND ENTRIES BECOME SOLE OWNERSHIP OF __________ COMPANY." With that being said, they can download or use any pic at their discretion. Such as, this instance where they could change the color of the car and use his pic as many times as they would like. Lastly, to all you freaky guys out there, that's why you should not send or receive naked pics by text, email or any other outlet. Because anyone can intercept them and when they do you can do nothing about it because you sent it thru an outlet used by the public or the owners of the lines/tower which will be AT&T, Verizon, Time Warner, etc.

I think you're right Todd !!! It was that way all along

Yes they can use them all they want and for next to nothing. Thats the nature of those photo websites. Alot of the smaller semi-pro photographers use those sites...download pix with the hope that they can then use that exposure to get more larger paying gigs. He's had quite a few of his pix show up in pamphlets and other ads....and he gets next to nothing for them. The whole website is set up like that.... the company or individual subscribes to the website and then downloads stuff for next to nothing......from my understanding alot of the companies are doing it. Whay pay some big $$ for a pro photographer, location, model etc, when you can find something for pennies that will still suit your needs......its not like they are stealing them off some random website forum etc.

I dont mind....its not like I'm going to have my car show up in these ads if I was asking for $$...its fun to open something up and see your car in some national ad

I was just harrasing you, I can't really tell. I bet you're right though.
