To anyone who has a photo or video of the famous Matilda the sleeping Sasquatch up on their YouTube channel or website, you'll have to take it all down. We're sorry to break it to you, but it looks like the founder of the Erickson Project, Adrian Erickson isn't too happy with his $1,000,000 video being distributed via news sites and blogs without proper license. Ketchum made this statement today apologizing followers about the removal of the image from her Facebook page and why she had to comply:
I'm sorry to say the picture of Matilda had to be taken down. While she is adorable that picture is owned by Adrian Erickson. It was allowed to be in the paper only. That picture is copy written and licensed. Anyone distributing or posting it is doing so illegally. Adrian is a good person and out of respect for him we will not post it publicly . We advise everyone to do the same. - Dr. Melba Ketchum

[Update] Ketchum may be talking about the images posted by Bill Munns yesterday. As of this writing, the video of Matilda is still up on Ketchum's Facebook page.
[Update #2] She's talking about the Munns photo. A few commenters are referencing it.
