Once again The Star does what it seems to do consistently, publish a picture without any credit at all. Unlike the Malay Mail who published a blog article of mine without permission then printed an apology.
This issue with The Star has also been discussed in depth on Shutter Asia:
RAGE also used my pictures before without credit.
Anyway here’s the article and picture of Hannah Tan in The Star today on page 3.
Here’s the article online: Catch Hannah Tan at the movies and another picture used without credit in the DailyChlli version – Agent Hannah is Gonna Get You
The original photoshoot is here and the pic used below.
Oh well, I hope The Star learns their lesson and starts crediting soon. Even in the worst case they should put “Picture courtesy of Hannah Tan” but they don’t put anything at all implying they own the picture.
Which they definitely don’t, I do. I gave permission for Hannah to use the picture for editorial publication on the grounds that the picture is always credited. So it’s not her fault because I know she tells them what to put for the picture byline.
If you think this is wrong, please write to The Star editor and complain, feel free to cite this blog post.
