Well once again I’m getting threatened by an attorney for something that seems ridiculous and I will ask this question now… Is taking photographs of cars and the signs that are on them illegal?
Earlier today, as I do on many Wednesdays, I posted a post entitled: “Wordless Wednesday – I Lost My Implants…” where I simply stated: “I saw this truck parked at Island Naturals in Pahoa on the Big Island yesterday:” and then posted a picture of a truck that I saw parked at Island Naturals in Pahoa.
This afternoon I received an email from Honolulu Law firm WILLIAM J. NAGLE III, ESQ., Roeca Luria & Hiraoka LLP stating:
This firm represents Dr. *********** in the matter of the photograph of the sign displayed on your blog dated 1/29/14. We request that the photograph be removed from your blog (damontucker.com) as the contents of the sign are offensive to our client. Because your blog is widely read on the Big Island, the photograph of the sign has disappointed and upset Dr. *********.
Mahalo for your kokua in this matter.
Well I don’t know what I should do really and feel that I have every right to post pictures I take in public. I was just posting an observation I saw and really wasn’t making any statement other then it was “Wordless” in a sense.
I’ve left the blog post up… but have now removed the Doctors name from the picture.
IS PHOTOGRAPHY A CRIME? Here is the incriminating photograph… minus the doctors name:
