PhotoPoint Pictures Available For A Price

from the silly-companies dept

Well, it’s now official. If you had photos on PhotoPoint (even though you paid subscription fees that won’t be returned and won’t ever be used) you will now need to pay them another $25 to get your photos back. The company (or, rather, the former President, since the company has no employees left) defended their decision and says that they’re not ripoff artists – and are doing their best to get the photos back to users. If they really wanted to do that, they would have told people they ran out of money and given them notice to download their own pictures. It seems to me that these photos remain the property of those who took them – so I wonder if PhotoPoint is breaking some sort of law in holding them hostage.
