Photo Search Fight Continues

Note: This is slightly revised from the version originally published.

Last month, I wrote that some artists were upset over the new AltaVista photo search service. Photographer Leslie A. Kelly is one of those upset. He complained to AltaVista at the end of October regarding its indexing of his photos, alleging that it infringed upon his copyright and trademarks.

Since then, AltaVista has removed his images from its index and told Kelly that it considers the matter closed, he reports. Kelly says he will press on until the service compensates him for use and damages.

Kelly has also sent a letter to Lycos, alleging similar infringement of his material in its photo search service.

Kelly's complaints involve images taken from both his sites, above. FYI, he does not maintain any pages within these sites devoted to his complaints. He says that those interested in more information on this topic should email him at [email protected].
