Manila Bulletin files counter suit against Photoblogger

Now it’s Manila Bulletin’s turn. The newspaper filed a counter suit against photographer and blogger Anton Sheker.

Realme Philippines

Anton earlier filed a Php 1.2 Million copyright lawsuit against Manila Bulletin (including the graphics artist and section editor) for publishing his photos without his permission {see earlier story here and the first coverage here}.

In return, Manila Bulletin is suing back Anton with exemplary and moral damages for Php 2.0 Million. MB claims fair use in its publication of the photos.

I would like to see how this case would turn out. Pretty interesting, and I agree to what Bryan has pointed out about fair use.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
