Firefighter has rights

The problem: Originator of the subject is a hobby photographer and firefighter Christopher Benkert. The 33-year-old told the “Bild” newspaper that for him the whole thing was “just bold” and “outrageous”. A request to use the image would never have reached him. But Benkert is currently refraining from an advertisement. The company headquarters are unclear, “in the end I ended up somewhere in Vietnam”, the firefighter is quoted in the “Bild” report.

City wants to examine legal steps

As can be seen from the newspaper report, now the City of Dillingen examine legal steps. After all, a fire truck with a visible coat of arms is being commercially abused without the knowledge of the municipality, according to a spokeswoman.
