Honestly, I'd be pissed off, and have held a grudge for a long time.

I'd probably play along and find a way to be OK with it, but I'd always be upset over it.

Just because the pic got fame doesn't make it OK.

Really? I honestly don't think that I would care AT ALL. I grew up in Hawaii and kids were routinely naked on the beach up until about 3-4 years of age, often even older for certain ethnic backgrounds. All of my ex-girlfriends have seen baby/toddler pics of my penis because of that, and because it was Hawaii and we ran around naked in the yard a lot, frankly. My little sisters, too.

Your baby body is so many millions of times different than your mature body that I really don't see how this is remotely an issue, but to each their own and different cultures and all that I guess.

Now if I knew that I could sue and they would pay me millions of dollars to shut up and go away, if I'm totally honest, I would be extremely tempted. Life's tough and a few million dollars would sure go a long way!

Running around the yard naked is a far cry from having your naked picture taken, and then sold.


Ignoring the fame of the album, imagine this conversation:

"Hey, can I take naked pics of your kid?"

Um..... no

"It's not creepy or anything, I'm a professional photographer".

What will you do with the pics?

"As the person taking the pic, I own the copyrights and can profit from the naked pics of your child. I can use them in perpetuity and you get nothing. I'll probably make 30 million copies and sell them to people wearing plaid flannel and Doc Martens".


What if later he wishes I hadn't allowed that?

"Don't worry about that. If he ever wishes we hadn't expoilited him, wankers on internet forums will make fun of him and call him names."

I do think that I (or my parents) would be entitled to some compensation. Perhaps they should have negotiated the ability to maintain more rights or get a bigger slice of the pie. Perhaps they should go get a bigger slice of the pie now, but that's not what was asked.

In response to the specific question ("How would you feel if the whole world saw your baby penis?"), I truly don't think that I personally would have any problems with my naked baby parts being on display in a similar manner in any way whatsoever.

But we can't know for sure.

All we do know is that 100% of people who were pictured naked on 30 million Nirvana albums is bothered by it.

Me..... I am completely confident I'd be upset about it.
We can't know for sure how I would feel even though I'm telling you, but we can be confident about how you would feel...?

To be clear, I use language like "I truly don't think" because of my science background; I never claim anything with 100% certainty that hasn't occurred yet.

I don't mean to have an argument, just understand that my feelings on the matter are completely different than yours. And they're feelings, so they're not right or wrong.

Just another case of someone trying to get paid for no legitimate reason… “I changed my mind and I don’t like it, pay me!”

Haha, wait, "changed his mind?" Seriously, you thought that babies had the capacity to legally consent to anything?

That's not how that works. :rolleyes:

Apparently, his parents did not sign any consents to have his likeness used, either. That's where it looks like the band and/or record company f*cked up. Majorly. (The whole "child pornography" angle, conversely, is just a way to get press coverage. Even if no baby penis were present, there would be liability for use of the kid's image even if he had been fully clothed.)

All that said, without having researched it, there is a serious statute of limitations issue here. While the statute may have been tolled during his minority, the plaintiff has obviously known about this since he was a little kid. Typically, statutes of limitation for something like this are 4 or 5 years. If this kid is over the age of 23 or so (18 + 5), then he may have a serious problem with this going forward.

My bill is in the mail!

xo,

Krash

Wait. I don't remember the school actually asking me if I wanted my picture taken on picture day......

I remember being unceremoniously herded into the auditorium, made to stand in line forever until my name was called, and was forced to sit quietly and motionless on an uncomfortable wood seat under bright lights to blind me.... No food or water..... I was force to suffer like hell for freaking SECONDS..... I think I'm scarred for life and need counseling for STP, PBJ, or something like that......

Are you upset that you’re not getting any money? Or are you upset that people are seeing your penis as it was when you were an infant?

To be honest, it is a bit weird that just about everyone in the world has seen that baby dick. It's a pretty famous baby dick. In fact, it should probably be on the Mt Rushmore of dicks. Probably more people have seen that dick than any other dick in history. If that's kiddie porn, then there's like a few billion people guilty of looking at it.

He's right up there with Michelangelo's King David's dick!

Ain't that somethin' !

But it apparently didn't bother him for at least 20-25 years.

Ya... the only thing that bothers him is trying to figure out how to stretch his 15 minutes of fame into an hour.
