Some people have very infated ideas of their own importance and no idea of the law. I received the email below, it concerns images I took of a performance in a public car park at Kingscliff during a public event, open to all. And anyway, they've been up there 2 years and no one's been interested enough to buy one, but I'm not telling him that!
Hi Odille ,
Just a reminder that you do not have my approval to sell any images of the Samba-Blisstas !
It is a breach and would appreciate you remove the images from the site !

I sent this back to him:
Dear Mr barrett
These images were taken by me at a public performance in a public car park at Kingscliff, and I am sorry but under Australian copyright laws I have every right to sell them. I am breaching no laws.
I have put a link to your page which I do not have to do, if you continue to harass me I shall remove it and leave an advice to people NOT to consider joining an organisation run by a control freak.
