I’m a 37 year old male (in 2007) from Minneapolis, MN, USA. I operate an online stock photography service I started in 1998 (at www.cgstock.com). My work is documentary and stock photography in Minneapolis, China, and the Philippines, supported by licensing the more commercial images (of my own and two other photographers). I’m married to a Filipina and I visit China and the Philippines periodicaly.

I am continuing to develop my online catalog and explore humanistic photography projects. I have done extensive perl programming and recently focused on improved keywording. I
prevailed in a copyright infringement lawsuit in US District Court, district of Minnesota, 06-cv-01164, representing myself. That case is described here: http://www.cgstock.com/essays/vilana

Legal victory for photographer vs. corporate infringer, US District Court

I posted previously I was going to trial, and now there is a verdict (issued Feb. 15th, 2008). Federal District Court Judge Ann D. Montgomery ruled Vilana Financial, Inc. stole photos from my website, published them, then forged a sales agreement and lied about the source of the images. I was awarded $19,462.00 in a combination of actual and statutory damages, including for removal of copyright management information (Gregerson v. Vilana Financial, et al. 06-cv-01164, D. Minn.). I defeated six claims against me for appropriation of name and likeness, defamation, and trademark infringement, and others. I represented myself in the two+ years of litigation. The details of the lawsuit are on my website. “Gregerson v. Vilana Financial, Inc.”:http://www.cgstock.com/essays/vilana
