    I don't think she has a long leg to stand on.

    The reason a photographer has a model release in the first place is so that he has the right to sell the pictures that he has taken. When the pictures were taken he must have paid her in some manner. If down the road she becomes rich and famous he has every right to sell the pictures. That is the slippery slope that actors etc must go through, when they are living through their salad days, is whether to pose or not.

    The pictures are a commody and the photographer has the right to contact the subject for right of first refusal. If she decides that she doesn't want to pay for them he has the right to sell elsewhere. That may sound like extortion but it is still legal.

    The choices that she made when being photographed are coming back to haunt her. But they were still her choices. Even if she didn't sign the release, she should have known better. THese things have a habit of coming back to bite you in the ass.

    If the release is in fact a forgery then the pictures should be returned to her or destroyed. However determining that fact is not easy. Signatures change and lots of experts disagree on authenticity.

    As for the search warrant it sounds like we are not getting enough information. Even in LA I don't think the judge would allow one on just on the information that we have been given.

    Thomas:

    I lived in LA for seven years and I agree about goodwill etc but there still exists an underbelly of scavengers and parasites that live off the naive and hopefull innocents that show up every day to try to be a star.

    At some point they need photographs taken and there are hundreds of photographer that live off this type of work. If some are succesfull at getting girls to disrobe they give the girls their pictures and keep the negatives for years, just in case.

    In some cases they girls, and also guys, will pose nude just for the money. Unfortunately they will usually later regret it but they made the choice and they now have to live with the consequences.

    I just thought of what might have changed the dynamic here.

    Perhaps this photographer was an old boyfriend whom she had allowed to photograph her while they were messing around or shoot some nudes of her. If, in this case she knows that she never used him prorfessionally, and therefore, never signed a release, then she could set the wheels of justice going.

    1. That would mean that the release is a forgery.
    2. The initial call to her would look a lot like extortion.
    3. She could go to the police about it.
    4. The police then could possibly get a search warrant

    I'm not sure but this seems like the only scenario that makes sense to me.

    Possible the reason Cameron is so pissed is that she can't make the money from the sale of the photos. I am sure if she offered her "services" to Playboy or the like she could demand a pretty penny. If the photog sells them he pockets the change, not her and her agents, lawyers, hangers-on etc. Two many people being cut out of the pie.

    Maybe I'm being to cynical, but I tend to side with the little guy until proven guilty.

    It just kills me that so many people are so interested in what these people do. Look at the media circus over this Kobe thing. I'm sure millions of dollars are being spent to cover this initial court appearance. Who cares?!! Spend the money on feeding the poor or something. Anyway I've spouted my pinko views before and got shot down so I'll just leave it alone.

    Who the hell is Camaro Dayze anyway?

    I agree, I certainly do not waste my time reading the rags, except those I wipe my greasy hands with, let alone go to see their movies, not even on cable.
    Time & tides wait for no one, especially photographers.

    That is what it boils down to, who really cares, other than Diaz if we get to see her boobs or not? Why is this news? Aside from the issue Robert raised which has not been part of the news, I could not give a rat's ass what this people do..(but if the pics do come out, someone please send me the mag... :twisted: )
