I've been watching DVR of crime shows with my wife at night, you know, that togetherness crap. I've noticed on at least three shows (Lie to Me, Criminal Minds, and one I can't recall) they have shown as part of the opening a photo of that worthless piece of crap Richard Rameriz (sp) aka the night stalker. What I'm wondering is if that scumbag gets paid for them using his image or not. It bothers me greatly if he is because he was and is a horrible human being.

I searched around a bit but couldn't find any reference to royalties! I sure as hell hope not and still for the life of me don't understand WHY we are still feeding and supporting scumbags like him and Manson (just to name 2)! I'm pretty old school and VERY cut and dry about capitol punishment so maybe I should just keep quiet from here out!

I think they should release Manson and follow him around with a camera crew. It would be funny as hell.

I hope we get an answer because Ramerez doesn't deserve any attention. I ran into his 'biographer' and got into it with him because I think HE was just a fan of the night stalker.

To answer your question, no. The person who took the photograph has the copyright to it. So if anyone gets royalties, it would be the photographer, not Ramirez.

No. Criminals such as Manson and Ramirez are considered "public figures" and, as such, their privacy rights are significantly less than those of an average citizen.

Good. I had this image of this a-hole who tormented and murdered senior citizens making money and it sickened me.

Don't people like that end up writing books and publish there stories?
and also what about the movie cash from "bundy" ( I think it was called that)

and in uk the kray twins didn't they make money from selling their stories?
one guy near me kenny ritchie (was scottish and released from death row in us)

I don't think any of them should cash in but once on the outside whats really to stop em?
