WTF File: I Stole Your Images, Give Me More or I’ll Sue

Cartoonist Bob Eckstein mourns the death of his cartooning career at Salon, and links out to this totally absurd story about copyright infringement. Admittedly, a lot of people on the web often have a laissez-faire attitude about using other people’s images, but this takes entitlement to an entirely new level.

After a photographer took down some of his images from his site, he actually received an e-mail from a man who had been using them without permission, complaining that he had taken them away and threatening to sue him if he didn’t put them back.
