Paris Hilton Sculpture
Is “COPYTRACK/WENN Rights International” a Scam?
This page used to contain photos of the “Paris Hilton Autopsy”. But on 2023-01-20, i got a email from “COPYTRACK”, in pseudo legal writing style, suggesting I pay $220.00 euro for compensation of past usage of copyright violation.
Here's the email from “COPYTRACK”:
Note that, if you read carefully, they did NOT outright claim i violated copyright, but suggest i may have violated copyright, and suggest that i should pay, with easy paypal link. The whole email is written in a pseudo legal style.
I think they are scam with scare tactics. These images, are widely spread on the internet in 2007. I got the image from the internet, various news sites, blog posts, social media sites, etc, and i make no money from it. I think the claim that i violated copyright is questionable, since am using it for purposes as non-commercial personal blog, and the intent is to document the behavior of human society (including the sculptor Daniel Edwards), and history of the internet behavior.
