PMA Gets Boost in Conflict with Smartmoney

In a recent press release, the Photo Marketing Association acknowledged an article by the Daily Business Review as supporting the industry group's stance against Smartmoney magazine regarding the copying of school photographs.

The conflict began in mid-November of 2006, with Smartmoney associate editor Stacie Bradford suggesting, as a money-saving tip, that parents purchase the cheapest school portrait package for their children and scan copies to distribute to friends and family. The Daily Business Review, a South Florida information and communication source for lawyers and business professionals, stood behind PMA's initial reading that Smartmoney's advice clearly violates US Copyright Law. PMA requested that the popular money-management magazine publish a clarification to it's readers. Smartmoney has refused to provide any corrections or clarifications.
