Bob Krist and Blog Readers Fight Piracy

As a follow up to my last post, seems as though USA Today was getting hit from all sides when Bob Krist, a judge for the USA Today's Picture America Contest, complained about the terms. Bob reports on his blog that one of his readers alerted him to the onerous rules for the contest so he told USA Today that he "couldn't be a judge if the rules stayed put."

Because of Marcelo's (Bob's reader), Peter's (this blog's reader), Bob's, and perhaps others' complaints, the rules were changed. As Bob says, the rules still aren't perfect, but they're better.

Congrats to all photographers who protect their rights!
