That said Kevin does a better job of covering the potential issues including the right of publicity. Undoubtedly this is going to be the legal reason for her suit. My guess is that the photography didn’t procure a release for commercial use. So I decided to do a quick round up of photography and your rights. This is going to be a quick round up of the various sites on the net related to some of the legal issues dealing with photography.
- Bert Krages is an attorney who deals specifically with photography, copyright law and IP. He’s pretty famous for the Photographer’s right PDF. His site is a good resource for photographers everywhere.
- Photopreneur is devoted to the business of photography and it’s pitfalls. Here’s a great post on whether it’s legal to photograph buildings
- American Society of Media Photographers is the is the leading trade association for photographers who photograph primarily for publication. They have a great article covering releases tutorial. I would also check out their copyright tutorial.
- Photoattorney is a blog devoted to the various legal issues facing photographers in the Internet age.
I will periodically revisit this issue and this list and try to update it with new resources.
