Greenaid Seed Vending Machines For Guerrilla Greenery!

Around here, we really love vending machines and who wouldn't when they're pretty much about the simplest business concept in the world and all sorts of weird stuff can be found in them? Anyways, the most recent is innovative and sure to be trendy since it jumps on the eco-friendly train!

Green AidGreen Aid

Now that you've had time to get over the fact that yes, I really did write "eco-friendly train", we'll move on to exactly what's in the vending machines. Old candy machines have actually been repurposed by Greenaid to dispense seed bombs. The idea behind these is not to take them home to plant in your garden, though that's always an option too; but rather, to add a little greenery to urban spaces by tossing the seeds into sidewalk cracks or anywhere else that's lacking that environmental touch.

Go ahead, get on the green train, too!

greenaid seed bombs

I was surprised to see an image that is copyrighted to me in your add for seed bombs.

Those are seed bombs I developed between 1991 and 2002 and that is a photo I took of them growing. So not only could you acknowledge who's photo that is and make a disclaimer that your product is NOT that product but you should have contacted me before you chose to use it in your advertisement. Please remove it immediately or I will have my lawyer contact you ASAP. Thank you.

I will be meeting with my lawyer tomorrow regarding this issue. It is a copyright infringement that has steep fines. I know it is the weekend but I will take care of it ASAP. If you would like to send me your lawyer/representative's address my lawyer will deal with him/her directly so we can work this out. If you are out of the "office" I'm sorry this will go forward regardless. You need to be more careful in the future in what you use to promote your products.

Please contact info@commonstudio.com. You need to remove my photo from your Greenaid advertisement. They have 24 hours to comply with this request before legal action. They fixed their own home page but need to fix all the others using my image.
Please fix this immediately by contacting them or your organization will be liable as well.
This is not a joke. It is a serious copyright infringement. Your company should take this seriously and do your research in the future.
