Photog Demands Shock Be Removed From Circulation

By Dylan Comment

shock_US_debut_sm.jpgMichael Yon, the war photographer who alleges Hachette’s Shock magazine used a photograph on its debut cover without permission, says he and his lawyers “are in discussions with those at fault, and we have demanded that all copies of the magazine be removed from circulation and from the internet.”

Yon writes on his Web site:

Protecting this photo has become at times a full-time job. I am in Washington D.C. in my attorneys’ offices when I should be finishing two important dispatches on Afghanistan, and my book about our soldiers in Iraq and their families at home.
