SNAPpers press on

THE ELEVEN photographers in dispute with The Scotsman over copyright abuse and unauthorized internet use are pushing forward towards court action. The dispute originated when, during the "lock-out" of freelance photographers who refused to sign away rights, they instructed the paper not to use images from its archive.

The photographers have the full backing of the NUJ and an ever growing number of cross party MSP's, who are posed to question The Scotsman about these issues. "All the evidence has been collated and we are in a very strong position," said a SNAP spokessnapper.
