Pictures as received in the official Porsche press release, as is usually the case with most other news items. If there is an issue, please drop a PM.

When you guys handed over your photos to Porsche, did you tell them not to distribute them? Apparently, they have sent it to every news magazine along with the press release with permission to publish them freely.

Hello,

I absolutely do not wish to be rude and the following question is only for personal knowledge, how is it a big deal if a picture of a public area or a private property in a public domain has been posted online?

Please do not take any offense, I have no idea on why are pictures suppose to be taken down and of what importance is it as anyone can go take them?

Regards,

Sorry if I am crashing the party, but if you guys really wanted the pics for yourselves, you shouldn't have given it to Porsche in the first place? And if the issue is regarding the fact that they used your pictures for publicity without acknowledging the photographer credits, why didn't you watermark it before you gave them?

@chiragh_bir: Since the pictures were distributed by Porsche to the Media through a press release, why not contact them and get the issue resolved. The pictures will be used by all of the Auto media for sure.

It's really good to see Porsche's 5th showroom come up in our country.

But I don't get why Bangalore doesn't have one it. If I recall correctly, there was a rumor, or maybe not, that a Porsche showroom was supposed to come up in Bangalore about 6 years ago. It was going to be the 2nd or the 3rd showroom in India. What was the problem, was there a fall-out between the company and the franchise? Does anybody know?

Bangalore has quite a lot of Porsches around. Dozens of 911s, a handful of Caymans and scores of Cayennes. It only makes sense!

Also, I don't know what the big deal is about the photographs.

I don't mean to offend anyone, and I know that people can be possessive about things like these, but taking the picture down isn't the way one must go about it. Perhaps, a phone call or an email just to clarify the issue would be best, I believe.

I do understand that a photographer's work is treasured and it is a big IPR related violation if the pictures are misappropriated.

Yeah I heard!

Apparently it isn't far from the Toyota showroom, right? Now that's quite a delay! 6 years of waiting! But then again, that's very typical Bangalore. The International Airport, the Metro, etc.

Sorry for going OT.

i dont understand whats the big deal about these pics? is there anything special in them, some art or something.

I agree about the fact that Photographer's work is treasured but there is nothing in these pics.

and when you are a senior member on a very unbiased forum, you shouldnt behave so strongly.

Rather you would have mentioned the source of these pics, and i am sure someone would still have thanked you though T-BHP dont need to as they got pics from Porsche.
