Renowned photographers’ trust involved in legal dispute

Posted on January 19th, 2011 No Comments

The Ansel Adams Publishing Rights Trust is involved in a legal battle with a man who has been accused of advertising posters and prints featuring “Ansel Adams Lost Negatives,” which the trust claims are not the work of the photographer.

The trust originally sued the man in August 2010 after he advertised “Ansel Adams Lost Negatives” items on his website. However, the man and his media company have since filed a counterclaim against the trust, as well as against the University of Arizona, which supported the trust’s claims. The complaint states that a team of experts have evaluated the negatives and found that the negatives were most likely created by Ansel Adams, and that the trust defamed the man and his company in their comments to international news networks.

The complaint and the counterclaim are set to be heard in May 2012.
