The Taylor-Swift-Is-A-Hypocrite Saga Continues

This story is not going away soon because Taylor Swift is the most powerful person in the music industry now, Apple obeys to her, everyone listens to her and thinks she is a role model. No matter what she does, people praise her, why? Because she has all the money left in the music business?

Two days ago, Consequence of Sound posted a letter written by photographer Jason Sheldon, denouncing Taylor’s hypocrisy and accusing her of robbing photographers of their work. A concert photo authorization form basically revealed that photographers can’t do anything with the pictures taken at a Swift concert and certainly can’t sell them to other media outlets, whereas Swift can use them whenever she wants. As Iman wrote yesterday, Swift answered Sheldon, or rather her spokesperson, pretending Sheldon has misrepresented the agreement form…, a total PR joke as the form was printed as is…

Unfortunately for Swift, Joel Goodman, another concert photographer has stepped in, posting a copy of the new authorization forms (for her 1989 World Tour whereas the other one was from a previous tour), and it looks worst, even scary. Consequence of Sound has again obtained a copy, which reveals that, If a photographer dares to publish a picture more than once or try to sell a picture, ‘[Firefly Entertainment, Inc., the Artist or the Related Entities may confiscate and/or destroy the technology or devices that contain the master files of the Photographs and any other images, and eject you from the venue in addition to any other remedy available to FEI, Artists and/or the Subjects…’ Are you kidding me? They have the right to destroy someone’s camera?

‘This contract is particularly egregious in that it not only contains an all out rights grab on the photographers’ work,’ said Goodman to Factmag, ‘whilst limiting their editorial control and ability to earn from that work — and does so without compensation — but because it does so under threat of criminal damage or destruction of property.’ And there is even something worst: ‘[The contract] has been passed to me by two other photographers whom I know, independently of one another on condition that they remain anonymous, said Goodman. ‘Some photographers fear losing income if they get blacklisted for speaking out against these kind of contracts.’

See, Taylor Swift is so powerful now that even saying something against her looks like a risk. I must admit it, I was waiting for this moment to come, the moment when the perfect Swift image crumble in front of our eyes, nobody is that flawless without hiding something. So it’s official, Taylor Swift has become Hitler now.
