Douglas Dietrich publishes an image of cosplayer to Amazon claiming it is of his own mother: In fact, the image is owned (and likely copyrighted) by "YUEGENE FAY "
If Douglas Dietrich did not have the permission of "Fay" to publish the image and associate it with the sale of a "book" on Amazon.com then Dietrich has committed fraud and a violation of copyright and "Fay" should submit a copyright complaint to Amazon.
Dietrich has done this on multiple occasions using the work of Yuegene Fay and claiming it as his own, but this is the first time he has associated an image with an item being sold. Dietrich is also being deceptive in his advertisement and promotion of the book by claiming the image is his own property (an "enhanced" photograph of his own mother) and not the property of "Fay". Dietrich has essentially stolen the image for his own purposes, very likely without the permission of "Fay". This is a violation of US Copyright law and possibly International Copyright Law.
