Quite by accident, I discovered the thing had been taken over by a web log on the Kralingen festival. I sent them a nice little letter asking them, as long as they used the logo, to at least give me a link to my own page. They removed it. Then my friend Harold Brouwer sent them a somewhat stronger letter. They removed it. ][enkie then started contacting the server, who after much prodding and finally legal threats, grudgingly did something about it.
The blog then replaced it with this image:So, while checking all that and other links on the page, I stumbled over some interesting stuff. In the first place, the IMDB movie database, just about the standard place on the web to go and find out things movie-wise, got some things on My Person right and missed out on some others. Compare with my own precious CV.
We still considered this an obvious case of plagiarism
and after much more back and forth the blogger tried this:
which would have been all right, if there had not been that previous history - still plagiarism.
What's for me so hard to understand, why should anybody rip off and then refuse to give credit to
the maker of an image you obviously think worth it to hang on to, fighting claw and tooth.
Especially since, elsewhere, this hypocrite sings and dances about how it's not decent to copy like that.

Undeserved creditsWas the 1970 Rotterdam Pop Festival as dull as this? It probably was.
Just because I'm still pissed that the producers of the movie never paid me (just like the camera-man I assisted, Mat van Hensbergen), I let it all stand: So, for history, I did the photography and sound. Can't those guys read or sump'n? (As Cheech, or Chong, said 'It's right there on the
license' title roll.) Besides, I'd have to pay $2.50/month for the rest of my Unnatural Life-Time® to correct it.)
But here, I wish to make clear I had nothing to do with the sound mix:... the only complaint I have about the film is the fact that it sounded like whoever recorded the sound for the festival messed up when recording the crowd noise and went back into the studio later and recorded various people in a small room to simulate the crowd reactions.

So let's make this clear, right in front of all these men:
the line, of course, is from The Big Country
I only did the sound for some crummy interviews
