Sara Lewkowicz's images of domestic violence went viral, starting her own fight for control of images and copyrights.
The police subpoenaed her photographs to be used as evidence against Shane. Unsure of what to do, Saraâ€™s professor told her to contact Mickey Osterreicher, National Press Photographers Associationâ€™s general counsel. NPPAâ€˜s and Mickeyâ€™s help have been one of the â€œsaving graces this year,â€ Sara said. In the end, Shane pled guilty and the photographs were not neededâ€”this, however, did not end Saraâ€™s battle.
