Not a Tango, nothing to see here

All for me, none for thee.

CSGV demands we not have our gun rights.  That’s the name of their game.  Now, apparently, they also demand they have our COPYrights.  (Link removed.  They don’t deserve the traffic.  Full image at the bottom.)

For those that don’t know who Oleg Volk is, he’s a professional photographer who specializes in pro-2A work.  Oleg doesn’t like his works being used by those that are not working towards human rights.  If you work in any way to strip the rights of people, he enforces his copyright.  Oleg is incredibly supportive of those that use his work to promote human rights.

Bets on how long it takes to remove Mr. Volk’s picture of Mr. Heller from CSGV’s website?

“All for me, none for thee.”  The everlasting cry of the criminal.

Here’s the full graphic for posterity’s sake.  Clicken to embiggen!

Update: Mr. Volk has let me know he’s submitting a takedown for his work.

Update: It looks like they’re also using Ms. Miller’s photograph without consent as well.

  1. I trust you have brought this copyright infringement on the part of the CSGV to Oleg’s attention?

  2. Using a photo of her in commentary about her will probably count as fair use commentary, so I think they probably get a pass there.

    No excuse for using Oleg’s work.

    • If they’re using her picture to talk ABOUT the picture, then yes fair use would apply. A picture used in the article to comment about her appearance somewhere else doesn’t automatically give them the right to use a copyrighted picture to do so.

      IANAL and all that.

  3. […] As I posted before, they’ve been using coyrighted images all without the consent of the picture owners.  They’ve now replaced the image of Mr. Heller with a new image. […]
