Photographer Sues Texas for Infringement
The San Antonio Times reported Monday that photographer David K. Langford is suing the state of Texas for a silhouette running in the back of vehicle inspection stickers across the state. Over 4.5 million of the stickers have been produced and, according to Langford, resemble a photo of a coyboy that he took in 1984.
Langford is calling for a cease and desist order against the Department of Public Safety from continued production of the stickers. The image was pulled from a wildlife magazine by prison inmates who were making the stickers.
The photographer wants the stickers to stop being made and for the Department of Public Safety to pay damages.
