Like I said when the big RS overhaul took place, I frequent RS less and less often. I'm a customizer and rarely get out much (from the customizing section, that is, in real life I do get out. Really!), but events like this worry me. Then there's the whole image content issues I've been reading about.... Geez....

Anyway, take a look at Palpa- er.... PW's list of friends:

 Thanks Scott. :) Thought I would crawl out of my cave and check in on the various SW boards.

Curto has now been perma-banned by Scum....

He doesn't even know why.

*shrugs*

Nobody's even sure why he was "fired" though too, so who knows.  Only Curto/Scum staff know what the truth is in all that quagmire.

My best guess, based on a comment from PW during the new TOS arguments, is that maybe he took some of his photos to Sansweet for this new book, without permission.  Since Curto was, at one point, actually employed by RS (but not at the time he was "fired") I'm assuming PW felt they belonged to RS and without permission, couldn't be used.  I'd also guess he even feels that the stuff contributed when he was a volunteer (and mod) falls into the work for hire category as well.

Don't know if something else came down for the forum ban, but it's the kind of petty stuff PW would do.  Maybe it's because of the Curto/Burns podcast being somewhat of a compeltition to the ForceCast?  But, it's just a real kick in the teeth when he's talking about the "history of the forum" and why people can't remove content they've posted while simultaneously running as fast as he can to scrub any mention of support for Curto and Joe Yglesias.

CurtoBurns Collector Cast

As far as I know, most of (if not all) of the figures for the book were rephotographed to maximize resolution and color consistency. I doubt you'd be able to pick out animage that is or was being used in the RS Photo Archive.

*shrugs*

It's all about DraMa.

Over on RS there has been a big debate on ownership and right of use for information and photos posted to their forum.  You can read the full thread for more info, but the basics are that a member returned from a suspension and wanted to remove all of his photos and some of the info he'd posted.  After deleting it he received a permanent ban and his info and pics were restored.  The TOS was amended and during the debate over some of the language, specifically the use of the word "publish" (being taken to mean RS could use forum info/pics in a printed work), PW dropped this:

Quote
I recently had to insist that the site be credited for information used from it in a printed book that's coming out, so I have a strong feeling about who receives credit in this case.

Since RS is a collecting site and the only collecting book I know of that's coming out is Sansweet's (well, Kellerman and one other guy are working on books but they're more vintage oriented and not scheduled yet), and I know that Curto and some others are getting contributor acknowledgements, and Curto's "firing" came about the same time as it was revealed he had input on the Sansweet book, I put two and two together to draw a conclusion.

So, maybe not photos, but I'm just thinking that PW feels that the input that went into the book belongs to him since it was someone from his site that contributed.  I don't know, speculation.  Until Curto talks, or one of his friends that knows the full story leaks it, that's what I came up with.

Edited because, apparently, I can't spell or use proper grammar after 1AM.

I find it ironic that PW is making a point about credit/attribution.

I was wondering about that email with the updated TOS... I wonder if it holds any legal weight without any forced acknowledgement button being needed to get back into the forum?  I didn't have to re-accept them, I only got an email telling me they've changed.  Who's to say who actually received the email with spam filters and old email addresses and all that.
