Air Charter Advisors copied and posted Mr. Kruglov's copyrighted photographs to its commercial website without proper license or permission from Mr. Kruglov. Mr. Kruglov makes the images available for use under a Creative Commons 2.0 license, but Air Charter Advisors followed none of the published terms. Mr. Kruglov specifically added the "Non-Commercial" term to the CC 2.0 License under which he made available the image at issue in this case. Air Charter Advisors copied and posted Mr. Kruglov's copyrighted image for commercial purposes, and its use is therefore outside the scope of the specified license.
Mr. Kruglov is a commercial photographer who relies on the proper licensing of his copyrighted photographs. Mr. Kruglov charges license fees for the proper use of his copyrighted photographs. Air Charter Advisors failed to properly license twelve of Mr. Kruglov's copyrighted photographs. Mr. Kruglov is due the cost of a proper license for the images at issue.
