David vs Goliath applied to stock photography

Great story on Slashdot on how a stock photographer represented himself in court and won a copyright infringement over a big corporation that produced false documents to try to prove they bought the image from someone else.

Nonstress Test

Nonstress TestCindy Hains receives a nonstress test (NST)

Nonstress-testA doctor shows Cindy Hains the result of her nonstress test (NST) at the CHUL hospital in Quebec City. The NST is a Doppler time series recording of the heart beat of a fetus in utero simultaneous with the abdominal and/or uterine contractions of the pregnant woman to indicate if the baby is not receiving enough oxygen because of placental or umbilical cord problems and other types of fetal distress.
Technical: Canon EOS 1D mark II, 1/100 at f10 with a 24-70 at 26mm – ISO 200, one on-camera flash bounced to the ceiling.
Keywords: CHUL, nonstress, non-stress, nonstress test, non-stress test, NST, doppler, heart, fetus, utero, uterus, record, recording, uterine, contraction, contractions, pregnant, pregnancy, birth, give, giving, biophysical, prenatal, test, high-risk pregnancy, baby, health, fetal heart, reactivity, heart rate, rate

Yep, day to day “activities” is good for stock photography! And by the way, the test was positive, the baby is still moving normally.
