TI Invitation Response
T.I.’s event planners Music Business Politics released an invitation on multiple social media platforms, to his birthday party with a Caribbean Carnival theme. His team used an image belonging to Trinidadian Photographer Laura Ferreira, but failed to credit her. Laura’s watermark was also removed. Under the Federal Copyright Act of 1976, photographs are protected by copyright from the moment of creation
Laura is a well-known and respected photographer/artist in Trinidad & Tobago and internationally. Her photos can be seen in numerous publications, billboards and advertisements..
Laura noticed and requested that if he chose to use the image, he must credit both her and the designer Anya or take it down ASAP.
A statement from Laura via her Facebook…
“T.I. is using one of my images for his birthday invitation, on his Instagram account (it’s now on his Facebook page, too). Would love to have a credit for myself as well as the costume designer, Anya Ayoung-Chee. Seriously, whoever designed this knew they didn’t have the right to use it. Removing my name from the image doesn’t magically make it right. I would have been thrilled to let it out to such a huge audience, if I were contacted in the first place.”
This is Lauras original image
Can T.I. be held liable for this invitation?
In honor of #ThrowbackThursday, the former video vixen shared a throwback photo of her and Wiz Khalifa on the red carpet at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles.
In the sweet Instagram image the two seemed to be head-over-heels in love. But it was the heartfelt caption that accompanied the picture that exposed Rose’s true feelings for her estranged husband and father of her young son, Sebastian “The Bash” Taylor Thomaz.
“My #ManCrushEveryday you know what it is…. We went wrong somewhere and even if we never ever get back together (Even tho I pray, dream and hope we do) he will forever be the love of my life,” she wrote.
“The media doesn’t make it easy but f— them we gotta live for reality and not society. We forever have a bond because we made a beautiful baby from our Love. Through all the ups and downs of our relationship my heart still beats for him every single day.
“I’m sick of putting on a front like I’m happy without him. I’m not. He makes me happy. He’s the only one who can. Regardless of how our lives turn out in the long run he will always be the skinny tatted up stoner that has my heart,” she continued
