Controlling your image is a valid quest for any photographer, as we all want to protect our brand. Seeing one’s work altered without permission can be frustrating, as can discovering your work on blogs that are void of any credit. The first response for most photographers is to watermark their images, ensuring that their logo or website graces every image that hits the internet. In today’s landscape, is watermarking your photographs the best way ...

Importance of EXIF information
Most people don't use the EXIF information provided by their cameras, but for this photographer it got back over $15000.00 in stolen camera gear.

Read the article to find out how he did it and how it relates to copyright.

If your camera lets you automatically add copyright EXIF metadata to every photo you take, you should do it: it could help you recover your gear if it ever

Bad Photograpy Contracts
To protest horrible photography contracts similar to Taylor Swifts, a newspaper sends a cartoonist instead of a photographer.

Photography Contracts
I think it is important that the press be able to print the news unrestricted and uncensored.

In the case of Taylor Swift and her crippling contract she is inviting the press to photograph her event. If she doesn't want to invite them that is her choice, but she shouldn't be able to censor their work, damage their equipment or destroy their photos.

As to getting managements approval, after the tour, this is another form of censorship. If I own the copyright of an image I must not be restricted in how I can exercise my copyright.

As an example if I was invited to a concert and the artist did something embarrassing, I should have free reign to publish it however and wherever I wanted without fear of reprisals.

If she doesn't like that then she should hire her own photographers and then she can completely control how her image is marketed.

That contract is not abnormal. She just got in trouble for it due to her complaint to Apple.
