Photographer brawl..DC USA.

Another one from the archive, This was a shot taken in Washington DC again during the NOI movement. basically IN THE PRESS area they had a small area for a the photographer but the place was over subscribed so we had to be rotating 10 photographer every 5minutes ...

I wish I ccould of got a wider angled shot but the security guards would allow us to move and they weren't joking...heehee....lol

LOL....now this is what you get at Nigerian weddings and the official photographer for the wedding would be either the guy with the waist coat turning his back to the camera or the one on the far right....

Title: The battle for copyright is not yet won
Feature: news
Date: 22 November 2006

It seems that any sigh of relief upon last week's news about orphan works was premature. A BJP reader from the US, Cathy Sachs, who also happens to be executive director of the American Society of Picture Professionals, warns us in her letter (published below) that the fight is far from over.


The ASPP, alike the Stock Artists Alliance and the American Society of Media Photographers, is galvanising its members in the belief that Representative Lamar Smith, the sponsor of the Orphan Works Copyright proposal, is not going to back down. He, like many non-photographers, believes that works for which an author cannot be found after a 'reasonably diligent search' should be free to use by whoever wants to use them.

It is worth adding here that if the proposed bill goes through, even if the author (or photographer) does appear, they will only be able to claim 'reasonable compensation' for the use of their work, which will, most importantly, not include statutory damages or the attorney's fees they may well have had to incur. For many, fighting will just not make financial sense.

Meanwhile, in the UK, the Gowers Review of Intellectual Property is being penned as I write. In the summer, more than 400 UK picture libraries and agencies wrote to Mr Gowers to voice their concerns. Now it is a case of waiting to see if these concerns have been taken into account. Let's hope that UK photographers have had more of an influence than US politicians.
