BJP chronicles the Morel/Twitter/Visa Pour l’Image/AFP/duckrabbit flap

It’s been hard to keep up with, but thankfully BJP has done a concise and cogent roundup of the recent flareup in the Morel/Twitter/AFP debate as JF Leroy, co-founder of Visa Pour l’Image, and duckrabbit have entered the mix. In true duckrabbit style, the rhetoric is elevated, but the central point remains valid. A photographer’s work was posted to twitpic, AFP took the images and sold them without compensating the photographer. Now, Leroy has come in to defend AFP (or at least, to blame the photographer), and the debate rages on. The best place to get caught up to speed is over at BJP’s coverage, AFP v. Morel: The Debate Rages On.

    “A photographer’s work was posted to twitter…”

    You might want to check this. I believe it was posted to twitpic, a separate corporate entity with different and more protective T&Cs from twitter.
