I recently saw a photo-credit correction on Midcurrent, and it was handled with aplomb and courtesy. Anyone who works in the publishing industry understands that typos, errors, and miscellaneous mistakes will happen, even to the best (and are not the end of the world despite the beliefs of internet hecklers). I have made my share. But running a correction on a miscredited photo is the right thing to do.
How should I handle this? Thus far, my stance has been to let bygones be bygones, but never contribute to this magazine again and talk shit about it (privately). It is a kind of a big deal, as I need to protect my intellectual property, but I want to be understanding and not get a reputation as a pain-in-the-ass prima donna. And in theory, I'd like to contribute to this magazine again.
Thoughts? Has this happened to you? Do I have any recourse, or am I at the mercy of the publisher?
