Copyright Licensing Issues

When you own a copyright to a photograph, you have complete and exclusive control of how it is reproduced, displayed and distributed. These rights may be assigned, sold, transferred or given away. If you decide to authorize others to use your copyright, also known as licensing, you may want to consider certain important items.

Copyright Notice - Not Required But Helpful

You'll often see a copyright “notice� – the familiar © or the word “copyright� with a date and name of the copyright owner - posted on works of authorship. This copyright notice is no longer required for copyright protection, but it may be a good idea to use it.

Copyright Transfer - Read the Fine Print Even on the Web

While you might think that you are safe from transfering your copyright when using the web to transmit your images, be careful. Although a copyright transfer must be in writing and signed by the copyright owner, the law has caught up with technology. You now can “sign� a document by responding electronically. A contract may be in any memorandum form, including electronic mail. It is “signed� by any mark, written, stamped or engraved, that demonstrates the intent to agree to the contract. So read the fine print before transmitting your images on the web to protect your copyrights.

Copyright Transfer or License - How you can share your copyright and still keep it

You can transfer the copyright to an image, either by selling it or giving it away. If so, you give up all rights that you had in the image as if you never took the photograph. But the only way to give up a copyright to an image is in writing. Even when copies of a photo are distributed, the photographer retains the copyrights to the image. If you give your client copies of the digital files, without more, you are not giving up your copyrights.

Copyrights IN Your Photographs

You take a picture of a city street. Look closely and you'll see copyrighted material everywhere in your photo. The obvious copyrights are on the billboard, the newspaper stand and products in the store window. The less obvious copyrights are in the sculptural ornamentation of the lamppost, the patterned fabric of a woman's skirt and the toy the kid is holding. You will never be able to track down all of these copyright owners to get their permission to use the photo. Are you out of luck if you want to use it commercially? Maybe not.

Costs: The Ignored Remedy

Criminal Law Procedure

In a criminal case, the government generally brings charges in one of two ways: either by accusing a suspect directly in a "bill of information" or other similar document, or by bringing evidence before a grand jury to allow that body to determine whether the case should proceed. If there is, then the defendant is indicted.

Defective Product Lawyer Says: Buyer Be Aware

In the past, the rule of the day was “buyer beware�. It was up to consumers to inform and protect themselves from irresponsible companies and dangerous products. Now companies are legally required to provide reasonably safe products. If companies produce dangerous or defective products, consumers can sue them for the injuries suffered as a result. Strict product liability makes everyone in the production process, from component manufacturers to distributors, responsible for the safety of the product.

Defective Products

Have you ever noticed how many warning labels are on things? As a child I always especially noticed the tag on the hair dryer because it addressed me directly: “Warn children of the risk of death by electrocution�. The 1994 Safety Regulations on general product safety require suppliers to provide safe products. Among the hundreds of products included are clothing, medicines, agricultural and horticultural products, DIY tools, food and drink, household goods, nursery goods, chemicals and pesticides, and motor vehicles.
