filmscanners: RE: OT UK Copyright Issues

Does anyone know about UK copyright regarding buildings/land marks. I've
heard that the Lloyds Building is copyrighted and you are not allowed to
sell photographs of it. Although I've been unable to find any information
which tells me this?

I've also heard recently of a Formula One web site being sued for having
photos of Formula One cars on it. The site is not commercial and was set up
by someone who is a fan of racing. 

I've read the book Beyond The Lens, which has a chapter on copyright but
where is the specific information about buildings/places that cannot be
photographed? I'm sure the Formula One fan would not have set up his site if
he had known.

Yes, for legal purposes, I think there is both a proper form for the
copyright notice, if it is used, for the contents of the notice, if it is
used, and for the date that should be used.  The date, I believe, is the
date of registration of the copyright, if it is registered, or the date of
publication, interpreted very broadly to include any public display of the

However, as to the dates used on a copyright notice, the situation does get
a little murky when there are transfers of the copyright from one party to
another which might result in the use of the date of the transfer; but I am
unclear on this.

The copyright that Jay Maisel requested was in his cover letter.

We've all seen copyright stated in various ways. Sometimes with two years,
the year of origin and year of publication. Sometimes just the year of
publication. If you've seen older single year copyright, it has probably
been that the images was published in that year. On the web it might mean
that the site hasn't been updated.

Is there any exact specification for copyright presentation?
