        I agree to some extent, but still, if he was hired to make some photos and he did his job, then he needs to get paid

      • Sean Taylor

        He paid them he just doesn’t have permission to use the photos without the consent of the photographer.

        Read the contract next time Williams.

      Fact is that you can’t use images for your own promo, CD’s and all that for free. Those images came apparently from a magazine photo shoot. So he has all the right to ask for his $$$$$. That’s what’s real.

    this is his fault…. dont hand over the negatives or actual photos with being fully compensated.

    These pics are from several magazines, not MMG’s promo. Dude needs to get paid that’s it. If someone would have use Ross’ music illegally, what do you think he would have done? Read the all article before you talking nonsense issshhhh.
