Outrage over photographer's threats to sue over use of dead girl's photo

This is straight from Radar Online:

"A photographer threatening to sue media outlets for running his photograph of Christina-Taylor Green, the little girl murdered in the rampage where Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot, is facing a massive backlash and calls for a boycott.
Jon Wolf’s actions have enraged so many people that a Facebook page has been started to boycott his business after he hired a lawyer and threatened to sue and collect big money from media outlets running a photograph of nine-year-old shooting victim Christina-Taylor Green." 

While I fully understand the photographer holds the copyright and is fully justified legally in seeking payment, it's definitly a case of bad judgement on his part to pursue this when it involves the death of a child. Read the entire story on Radar Online here.
