Wild v. Wrightson Services, Inc. et al. (18-cv-11186).

  • June 7, 2018

Biologist Alexander Wild, who is the Curator of Entomology at the University of Texas at Austin, takes surprisingly beautiful photographs of insects. His works, some of which can be seen on his website, have appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, National Geographic, and elsewhere. Mr. Wild discovered that one of his photos, depicting a German cockroach, was being used on a website run by Wrightson Services, a pest control service in Grafton Massachusetts that operates under the name Bug Bully Pest Control. Wild claims to have contacted Bug Bully on several occasions about its use of the photo, but the photo was not removed, triggering the suit. Wild claims direct, contributory and vicarious copyright infringement. The case is assigned to Magistrate Judge Hennessy in the Worcester division.
