    Yes, and I personally wrote it.

  2. They all look like members of a hit squad. Perhaps I've been watching
    too much TV.

  3. Yeah; Leica M9, yes, Nikon D40, no.

    Makes perfect sense, right?

    (And I'd at least try arguing that a D700 isn't a professional camera,
    the pro line is the D4.)

  4. And why should the have the right to restrict that?

    suggest you read, with comprehension, the full volume.
    A;though dated 1935, the enunciated principles are still valid.

    Also, WRT contracts issues you might want to consider

    WRT Real Property issues:

    All of the above are available at any depository law library.

    Last, but certainly not least, you should certainly understand the
    meaning of the reservation of powers contained in Article 1 of the US

    If you think that Federal law preempts State Law in all cases, your
    legal education is sorely lacking.

    A lot of people unfamiliar with photography think Leicas are hand-me-downs
    from Grandpa and the great war.

    Sometimes it's the length of the lens. I guess pros only use long lenses.

    Ironically, the diameter of the lens is more likely to distinguish pros from
    amateurs than the length.

  9. Certainly a III series probably is, or else too valuable to take out and
    People fairly frequently ask how "powerful" my lens is. Mostly when I'm
    using the 24-70/2.8. With the petal hood; so it's actually fairly long,
    and quite big around too.

    I've hard similar comments when using my 70-299 f2.8. When I want to be
    inconspicuous, I use my 50mm f1.4.

    Just tell them that it's as powerful as a small gas turbine engine.
    Mxsmanic, Sep 9, 2012
  12. Yeah, I should work out an answer in horsepower. Or Newtons.

    Or curies. That would scare them!

    - There's only a single supplier of each item (and usually an
    item group) of groceries you can use, no matter how much money
    you're willing to spend. Worse, for many items you need to
    ask several parties as each one of them hold a part of the item
    and it can only be used complete.

    Cereals: grain, sugar, making flakes, frosting, each additive,
    adding additives, using a carton, using a plastic bag to
    hold food items, printing on a package, selling packages
    ... everything held by a different party, and if just one party
    disagrees or overcharges badly ...

    When I buy groceries, I have a choice of many suppliers: several
    chains of several sizes, independent stores, specialized stores,
    online stores, ... and most items and all item groups have
    multiple sources within easy walking distance. If one shop
    is out of something I can go to the next shop, even of the
    same chain. They're all *very* willing to sell to me, and due
    to lots of competition prices are acceptable or downright cheap.

    - If you grow something in your backyard, you need to pay for a
    license --- unfortunately, for your apple tree you can't get a
    license, so you need to chop it down. You could try to claim
    apples were there before the need to license was granted, but
    that'll bancrupt you. And even if you were to win in a couple
    years from now, your tree still needs to be chopped down today.

    Where I live I can just buy seeds and grow groceries (except
    for stuff like pot and similar drugs). I can use the seeds of
    the plants I have grown to grow new plants if I like.

    Guess you still live in the old communist block, where shortages
    are the daily bread and getting a car would take 10-15 years
    (unless you were a fat cat). Oh, being able to choose between 2
    items of a kind (say tomato ketchup) is a rare treat for you.

  16. I see. Licenses do not matter.
    Irrelevant, this is no longer about the photograph.
    You need to actually *read* what you reply to.

  17. What as the fact that some "intellectual property" is deemed
    valuable to do with legal photography of trees and the selling
    of the same (which is also "intellectual property")?

    Wolfgang Weisselberg, Sep 9, 2012
  18. Seems the US law system is broken, if it's not a "loser pays
    all" system.

    In that case you should stick with more simple recipes.
    How do you determine overcharging? Isn't this just another way of
    saying "more than I want to pay"?
    They still have a price which you have to pay.
    That's not correct. Patents allow personal use.
    So, you have no real problems.
    Your geography is extremely muddled.

    I live in New Zealand.

    The loser only pays the costs if the case comes to trial and the
    decision requires that. There can be extensive legal costs in
    preparing for a case to come to trial, and those costs may not be
    recovered if the case is settled out of court or if the case is
    dropped before trial.

    In the majority of legal actions brought, there is no winner or loser
    because the cases are dropped or settled.
