    ...on the ad on the back cover of Issue 1 of GunBroker.COM magazine?

    Looks familiar...

    Isn't that Betty. She looks awesome in that picture - as she always does in the other pictures I have seen of her.

    However, isn't the ejection port and thumb safety on the wrong side of the gun? Guess they flipped the picture for some reason - perhaps she looks more intent on defending herself this way.

    Her name is Betty.
    "runt" refers to her old username here "runt of the litter"

    She used to be "involved" with someone here.

    'nuff said. Move along.

    That's Betty. She's ma fren'! :D

    I had the privilege of officiating at her wedding a few weeks ago. She and new hubby seem to be enjoying life together.

    Whose ad? I am not so sure that whoever printed it cleared the matter with me or with Betty?

    I know the face/name, but never met her.

    I'm more surprised that gunbroker has a magazine. What's it about?

    Oleg, you might know this. If you post uncopyrighted material on the web does it fall under any type of public domain laws? Is this pic copyrighted?

    There is no such thing as uncopyrighted material. Everything that a human being creates is copyrighted (at least within our definition of society). The question is how that copyright is handled. It can be protected via registration with the US PTO. It can be waived and placed into the public domain. It can be licensed. But it's always there... I cannot sell, publish, alter, or otherwise muck with another's works without their permission or without their having previously explicitly abandoned their copyright. Likewise, I cannot claim copyright to a work that is either help in copyright by another or which has been placed into the public domain.

    See above. :D

    Now, the Fair Use doctrine allows people to copy and/or duplicate snippets of copyrighted material for the purposes of review or research. However, modifying Oleg's picture for republication does not likely fall under Fair Use protection... :rolleyes: This means that either Oleg or the photo subject would have had to provide permission to the publisher for this picture to have been legally used.

    I'd bet a case of ammo to anyone that Gunbroker Mag did not get permission from Oleg, the photographer, or Betty, the model, to use that image. Oleg's work has been ripped off before and this wouldn't be the first time. This image comes from this page of his website http://www.a-human-right.com/concealedcarry.html

    Boy, I wish you had been the judge when I sued a publisher for reprinting some illustrations I had done for a small role playing publications years ago. :)

    Oleg, you probably have an intellectual copywrite lawyer already, but if you decide to pursue this and need one, contact me privately. One of the writers who works for me is currently going through this same thing with a liquor company--they used one of his images without permission.

    Oleg, just so you know, the ad was printed on the back of a thin mag that Gunbroker sent me. The advertiser is www.getaccw.com. The link is from that site (http://www.getaccw.com/images/girl2.gif).

    I thought for sure that thy'd have gotten permission. Guess I shouldn't have been so sure.

    I've got that same magazine.

    I remember looking at it and thinking that there was no way Oleg or any decent designer did the layout. It's just awful typography.

    They had OK to use photos on the web site. Did not have OK to change them as they did. Betty already reamed them for that. I think it was a mis-communication.

    Mis-communication?? Oleg, there are times when people just like stealing the work of others.
