Lasith Malinga by Dominic Sansoni

I came across the photo on Dominic Sansoni's Blog. Lasith is seen here posing with Sansoni's son Sebastian.

Sansoni is sheer class, even on a shot as simple as this he managed to take the 'perfect shot' see how the red and yellow on the shirt fuse with the background!

Mr Sansoni your arrogance is baffling you should be honoured to have your photo featured on such a popular site. Your son is a cricket fan as well right? One day he will appreciate his photo here and will stumble upon your comments. This site is a service to all Sri Lankans it's bigger than you and me. - Laura

Hello Anonymous (or is it Laura?),

If you took time to read my comment and subsequent post by Hilal, you might understand what I protesting about; Copyright. Hilal did understand and was kind enough to offer to remove it if I so wished. Very decent of him and I appreciate what he did. Hilal cleared the use of picture with me and I was then happy to let him use the image on his site. Copyright is Copyright.
Have a great day.

My apologies for not addressing this sooner. Laura, I must admit that I'm 100% behind Dominic on this one. He is correct, everyone must adhere to to intellectual property rights. If not for the kind consideration of broadcasters worldwide this Blog would not exist.
