@LauraPetrolino Learning how each piece moves is fairly straightforward, but that's just the beginning. Play online or, even better, find a local chess club. :D

@ClayMorgan @belllindsay Yeah, there were variations of a 'cold water challenge' kicking around for a while, but Frates' interpretation actually aligned with the specific cause. The shock of having ice cold water dumped on you was meant to give people a glimpse of what ALS is like - frozen in your own body. 


Will they be able to raise that kind of money next year? Not a chance. However, they did a huge influx of first-time donors which virtually every NPO from here to Timbuktu struggles in acquiring.

What I found most fascinating about the ALS ice bucket challenge is its origin story. It wasn't a campaign planned by the organization. Rather, it was a personal challenge issued by Pete Frates, though even that story may be apocryphal.

@RobBiesenbach @ClayMorgan Back in my account manager days at Jupiterimages, I'd deal with rights and clearances issues all the time. One photographer we rep'ed built out most of his portfolio with action shots of water - splashes, drops, etc. He was walking through a grocery store and happened to see one of his images on the label for a very well-known daily shower cleaner, and he didn't recall seeing a royalty check for product-for-sale. 


Long story short: the original design shop never licensed the image but released an unwatermarked high-res comp to the client. Client included that image in their branding for that product going back six years. I had to call the brand manager and tell them they owed six figures. She was only two weeks into the job, too. 


The photog called me after the whole thing was settled and told me he just plunked down a down payment on a new house because of that little screw-up. 


Unauthorized web usage is a big one. There's a service called PicScout used by the big stock houses that scours the web for RM images and checks them against existing licenses. Agencies get themselves in a bind when they don't have a robust digital asset management system to segregate expired right-managed images from royalty-free.
