Haley Barbour, University Press deny pictures used in book without permission

Barbour and press deny book used pictures without permission

She demanded $350,000 in damages in a November lawsuit concerning Barbour’s 2015 book, “American’s Great Storm: Leading Through Hurricane Katrina.”

Altman says the book uses at least two photos she took as a contract worker for the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency after the storm struck in August 2005. Altman says she retained copyright on her post-Katrina photos.

University Press says that MEMA owns or co-owns Altman’s work because she was under contract to the agency, and says it got permission from MEMA.

Barbour says Altman waited too long to sue.
