Wal-Mart’s Video Troubles
This is actually old news now, but it’s still worth posting. Seems Wal-Mart is being haunted by some old videos they had a freelancer shoot for them years ago. At issue is whether the videographer was really hired “on a handshake.” If he was, he retains ownership of the videos he shot of Wal-Mart meetings, parties, commercials and casual gatherings, capturing moments that range from politically sensitive to professionally embarassing to legally damaging.
Very interesting stuff considering I shoot videos at my day job, and I have the same love/hate relationship with Wal-Mart I imagine most Americans do.
