From the Duluth News Tribune:
But when News Tribune photographer Amanda Odeski tried to enter the DECC on Thursday night to take pictures to accompany reporter Sarah Henning’s concert review, she got stopped.
Rob Thomas’ California-based managers, Lippman Entertainment, demanded Odeski sign a form transferring ownership to them of any photos she would take. We could run them in the paper once. But “all images will hereby become the property of Lippman Entertainment,” the form said. “It is further agreed that no images will be used in any manner known or unknown without written management approval.”
That’s not how we do business, and Odeski didn’t sign. She did the right thing.
