No way this is going to stand up to an appeal. Totally stupid ruling.

Actually, it’s entirely possible that this gets upheld. Plaintiff published his photo (and there’s no dispute that he owns the copyright), and Defendant used it without the proper consent/license, and did so for a commercial purpose.

Copyright law isn’t my area of expertise (I know just enough to be dangerous), but reading the ruling, I think it’s on pretty solid ground.

It is possible that the next comment here will change my mind again, it isn’t something I’ve formed a passionate opinion about, but it makes sense. It is a bit strange that Twitter can function for totally ignoring copyright and doesn’t have a YouTube-style arrangement compensating creators. One thing they could do is launch a feature for optionally protecting a tweet, retweetable only if the creator signs off.

It is not as likely to affect the little guy, and President Twit and his ilk could be a little more accountable for their tweets.

Someone beat me up with a better opinion. :)
