copyright infringement

Discussion in 'Photography' started by newfysnapshot, Dec 3, 2005.

  1. Myself and another photographer are having a discussion on the laws for
    copyright. We have both interpreted the Canadian copyright laws pertaining
    to photographs in different ways. He believes that the client owns copyright
    of all photos because they paid for the photos and the photo shoot. He
    manipulates these photos and restores photos when asked and believes he is
    allowed to do so with another photographers work. Is he infringing on the
    copyright of another photographers work or is he allowed to do so without
    infringing on the copyright laws?

    All answers are welcome!

    Your friend is ansolutely wrong.. The photographer owns the rights unless
    he/she expressly (in writing) sells that right.

    Yea, and even if you sell a client a print, they still can't reproduce the
    picture without your consent.

    In the US, the photographer owns the copyright (exception being "work
    for hire").

    However, the customer owns the physical photo they purchased. If the
    photograph becomes damaged, client or someone hired by them can
    certainly restore/manipulate same.
