Wow, big cooperations seem to have no issue using people’s photos on things do they? Well that’s all going to stop soon if Nicola Kirkbride has anything to do with it.
The 22 year old fashion blogger and student discovered Tesco was using her face, and although flattered clearly states on her blog that all photos belong to her.
That did not stop Tesco using her photo. What would it have taken them really to ask her permission? Or to pay her? It’s a global entity, it would have been peanuts to pay her. Nicola found out because someone tweeted her, letting her know. The power of social media huh?
Nicola is in touch with Tesco at the moment, so watch this space for the outcome. Let’s hope she sees some money!
Have you had this happen to you? What do you think about the situation?
