Minden Pictures, a California-based stock photo provider that specializes in nature and wildlife photographs, accuses Dorchester’s Expressway Motors of copyright infringement. Minden offers rights to photographs from a number of different photographers, including Tim Fitzharris, and displays the photographs it displays with watermarks containing copyright management information. Minden asserts itself to be the exclusive licensee of a particular Fitzharris photograph of fall foliage in Acadia, Maine that appears on Expressway Motors’ website. Minden asserts that the infringement was willful, and that Expressway Motors willfully removed the copyright management information. The case has been assigned to Magistrate Judge Kelley.
