A very interesting case with Gary Fong jumping into the midst and rescuing the poor photographer....

"The styling of this case was Poon vs. Tang, which is the greatest case name in the history of the World. At least, since the 1890 case of Honey vs. Pot."

LOL!

Thanks for sharing.

That was a fantastically written piece. All of the pertinent information and backstory, links to developments, humor sprinkled throughout and finally, a happy ending.

Thanks for sharing.

The two key lessons -
1. get your contract in writing,
2. only ever release the keepers.

I've always believed that a contract was a two way street.

Since there was no contract, the lawyer didn't have anything which stated what would be provided by the photographer and, therefore, would be unable to provide evidence as to what his expectations were. Clearly there were good photos provided. How could the lawyer prove that he expected every frame to be perfect? The photographer could've easily stated "I told him there would be bad ones, too", and that would be the end of it, since the lawyer would be unable to prove anything different.

That said, I'm sure the photographer has learned to keep the bad ones close to the vest...


Just shut up and smile...

3. If the client tries to modify the contract, walk. Especially if the client is an attorney.

couldn't even concentrate enough to finish reading after realizing it was Poon vs. Tang.
