Kotaku Pays Blogger for Pictures, Thanks to Neowin & Digg

After Neowin posted a story about Kotaku taking pictures from Prince17's blog, cropping them, and posting them as part of their gaming stories, and the story made it to Digg's front page, the gaming news site responded. Prince17 sent an e-mail to Managing Editor Brian Crecente and the man did not ignore him. Kotaku is paying Prince17 $200 for his two pictures and has apologized for not giving him any credit: "Just so you know, we always go to great lengths to fairly credit people, so this wasn’t something that happened maliciously." To all those scrutinizing Prince 17 for complaining, remember that no matter how small unethical or illegal an incident is, justice still needs to be sought. Well done Kotaku!
