From the San Diego Union-Tribune:

_The angler who unintentionally foul-hooked the heaviest largemouth bass ever caught is trying to put the city of Escondido on the hook for profiting off his fish photo.

John “Mac” Weakley of Carlsbad says in a claim against Escondido that the city has made money from his photo of the massive bass, caught March 20, 2006, at city-owned Dixon Lake, and “violated the exclusive copyright” he holds. . . .

The claim says the city “used the only known photograph taken by Mr. Weakley on his camera of the 25-pound, 1-ounce bass fish caught at Lake Dixon” to create and sell T-shirts for $20 to $22._

What do you think? Would you sue?
