Yesterday, July 5, 2018, the US District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division, issued an opinion in the case ''Brammert v. Violent Hues Productions,'' Civil Action No. 1-17- cv-01009, stating that the use of a photo taken from the internet and re-posted on another site was "fair use" and that use was not a violation of the photographer's copyright. Everyone expects that the decision will be appealed.
