This fellow, Eric Michael Roy of New York asked Google to take off the entire post about him based on a “copyright” claim of an image. Did Eric Michael Roy of New York take the picture? Did Eric Michael Roy of New York obtain the copyright from the photographer? Was this even “commercial use”? We’ll never know… We are happy to take images off based on copyright claims but to ask for the text about Eric Michael Roy of New York to be disabled too? Eric Michael Roy of New York – Really?
Well, here is what Eric Michael Roy wrote in his DMCA to Google (also at: https://www.lumendatabase.org/notices/16132688)
“This is a headshot that was taken in my studio by me and is owned by me. They used a screenshot from the webpage below and then emblazoned it with a watermark for their website.”
