I think I'm realizing the reason why I hate my job is simply because I do not love law in general. I've jumped around, changed practice areas to an area I "love" at a very chill firm and still find it so hard to want to go to work. I used to be on the creative writing/author track. To me, it's so hard to find creativity with legal writing. I try to get some side projects on the side to satisfy my creativity need, but it's not cutting it. Anyone else feel this way?

Current firm at SC level - 105k base, typically 10% bonus. Great WLB at the moment as I'm staffed on a very lax project that will run through 2022. Enjoy working with my team, no complaints.

Another firm I'm entertaining for an SC role - 5k sign on, 130k base. They're ramping up their practice so are looking for people with my specific skillset. Have heard good things about their culture but I take word of mouth with a grain of salt.

Turns out a digital media wrote me to have permission to use my picture, and when I said yes, they said they were looking for some other picture because I had already given permission to the competitors, which I didn't.
They just posted it without asking me, letting me know, or even mentioning my credits. Is this legal?
