The above is nothing but bullsh*t.It is nothing but a evil smear of a bitter male that couldn't get his 100% with her.They had been working together for years.She doing most of the work while this person that is smearing her and her name would sit back do nothing and want all the credit.Beth worked herself so much, so many hours, she got herself extremely seriously sick over the stress and didn't hardly have the time for her family and friends.Anyone believing in this post is a moron if they truely know her and if they do not you can rest assured that some men no matter how much you do for them, how much you give to them, , when you decide its best to part ways in a adult kind manner, since this person is alot older then she and would never marry her, is now acting like a child that has lost control is insane and needs professional help.Get a life and leave her alone.Her family has been nothing but courteous, respectful, generous and kind to this person while in his presents.You would think that he would be mature enough too do the same..

This report that was posted on Rippoff Report and is a scam. The person that posted this comment was Peter Langone who has knowingly committed slander and unlawfully sued this artist which was settled out of court giving her full rights to show her work. After a friend tried to defend his heinous acts, he used intimidation and threats to force her from her hometown and is still pursuing harassment against her. This post is a scam committed by Peter Langone, Langone Studios, Studio One to harass this creative artist. This artist does not negotiate or hire crew. This artist does not owe money, and displays excellent credit in her reports, no arrests or convictions, and is a college graduate with a flawless record. This is an attempt to slander the reputation of this artist, and is not to be acknowledged. If you have any questions as to the reputation of the person who posted this remark, you can download the records and find out for yourself his track record.

Peter Langone Peter Langone Slanders Innocent Creative Director. Peter Langone of peterlangone.com, Langone Studios, Studio 1, Peter Langone Photography Inc.

Peter Langone, commercial photographer and owner of peterlangone.com uses scam websites to Slander Innocent Creative Director under fictitious name to hide in an effort to avoid legal ramifications. The IP address of 70.88.39.41 has been identified as Langone Studios Inc. 215 SE 12th Street, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33301 and is the known origination of the alias posting from Mr. Andersson — from Lund, Sweden.

Peter Langone has within the week on November 18, 2011 posted more false claims about an Artist/Manager who worked with him and brought him his recent fame and success in an effort of pursued continuing harassment. A move that as many blog posts reflects is "not unlike something he would do".

Beth had a highly profitable business with Peter Langone and a solid friendship where she states in Digital Photo Pro how close their bond and working relationship was. The relationship soon presented obstacles, and Beth began taking notice of "questionable practices" from the photographer and known associates of Mr. Langone. Both the suspicion and her distaste for his affiliations caused her to leave the Photographer. No filings or reports were suggested at that time, Beth quoting "There were no hard feelings. I just wanted out."

The Artist, then Manager and Agent to Peter Langone booked this photographer high profile assignments like Buick/ Tiger Woods, Fox Sports, Dell Computers, and others. She also raised significant money for his directorial assignments for him to produce independent films and commercials. Peter Langone's photography was once popular with Ad Agencies in the 1980's, but he had not worked steadily since then until Beth began representing him. Once she took over, she revamped his style, pushed him into digital photography and she worked tirelessly around the clock to rebrand his ineffective style which had been negatively coined in the industry as "stock".

A week after Beth left, she began using the images she created to reflect her past work history with Peter Langone in her portfolio under a new company Icon Global Artists where she hoped to help other artists like herself in building a name in the industry. Her clients, who grew to respect her and her work followed, which enraged the photographer. He then began harassing the artist, and shortly thereafter threatened her to remove one of the images she was using that she creatively directed, styled, produced, booked, sold and was paid for directly by the client. In addition, the artist was using images of herself that Peter Langone had taken of her - as a friend for her personal music project, that he had signed over to her with a release and that she had styled, produced, and creatively concepted. Regardless of her cooperation he filed suit against her with alleged claims that she was stealing his work. Both of the clients we interviewed stated that she was "an amazing Creative Director", and that she "exceeded their expectations handling their assignments like a true professional." It was further stated that, "Peter Langone was the photographer that was working with Beth at the time, and that she promoted as her only choice of photographer, so if you wanted to work with Beth, she would only use Peter." They continue by stating, "The hard work was the months of planning and creatives that Beth provided for us."

Reports surfaced from friends close to the Artist and Creative Director who were outraged by the now public display of his baseless and frivolous lawsuit claims, and wanted to tell the real story of what the artist was going through at the time online without her knowing. Sources close to Mr. Langone stated, "It was an unfortunate separation, and Mr. Langone reacted in an unfavorable manner towards her, he was very upset and possessive of her, and leaving Peter Langone was NOT an option." Unfortunately, this display online was not what she was searching for since her privacy was of utmost importance. Regardless, Peter Langone continued his retaliation, and continued to put further pressure and instability in the way for the Creative Director to keep her from moving forward in both her personal and professional life.

After over a year of continued harassment by photographer Peter Langone, Beth was diagnosed with a serious condition that was brought on by years of chronic stress, the artist spent the last part of 2009 and all of 2010 overcoming severe internal organ damage. She transformed her service based business into a successful product based business, and worked as a freelance visual artist for only a few close clients on a daily basis. The artist was represented by outside professional management and removed herself from all business negotiations, and crew hires. The main thrust of her new business while in and out of treatment was mainly geared towards her writing her book, and music.

Throughout the end of 2010, the threats and harassment from Peter Langone seemed to have subsided for the artist, all but only a few reports of him visiting her family members without invitation, until mid February 2011 when Google decided to adjust their algorithms. Google's new algorithm change had instantly subverted all his efforts and attempts to push down the responses online from known associates who witnessed his slander. With Google's new decision, this posting was now back at the top of search engines, and the harassment would return to Beth via phone texts and emails claiming this was her doing. Now in recovery from her illness and completely removed from the environment, Beth felt she had put to rest his attacks, but now they are back in full force. Beth is now in relocation, and has filed a restraining order against Peter Langone.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) David Goldman Reports February 25, 2011 -- Google made one of the biggest changes ever to its search results this week, which immediately had a noticeable effect on many Web properties that rely on the world's biggest search engine to drive traffic to their sites.A controversial decision: Any change to Google's algorithm is a zero-sum game. Some websites win, some lose.

With regards to these false claims, Beth does not handle any estimates, bookings negotiations, productions, or crew hires. She does not own the claimed site or any affiliate sites or names referred to in this document, and goes by her legal first and last name. Any and all photography that is displayed in any portfolio reviews are her work as reflected in the below settlement agreement, and any and all further work from any photographers Beth has worked with in the past has been approved "in writing" by the artist or agent and credited unless otherwise agreed upon in writing by the photographer, producer, or author. Any and all original works of art have been filed with the U.S. Copyright Office, and her name is clear of any and all debts. She does not owe any business or person, and with research provided by all three credit bureaus shows outstanding credit and business practices.

The Lawsuit filed By Peter Langone:
The lawsuit was settled. This photographer was silenced by his settlement agreement with regards to intellectual property claims, and there was nothing proven with regards to this copyright infringement claim, stated in the settlement agreement (United States District Court Southern District of Florida Fort Lauderdale Division Case No: 10-CV-60467- Moore Simonton " WHEREAS the Parties agree that nothing herein shall be construed as an admission of wrongdoing by either party and affirmatively state that each is entering into this Settlement Agreement not due to any liability but solely to avoid the uncertainty and expense of litigation…it continues to state Langone hereby agrees as a condition of this settlement and for so long as ..is in compliance with and continues to observe the terms of this Agreement, to permit the defendant to utilize his l(My paraphrase: Peter Langone's) copyrightable photographs for her personal online portfolio for personal job industry solicitation for herself only, including but not limited to those photographs depicting or evidencing the defendants work as a stylist, creative director, or producer.
