RE: filmscanners: OT: Copyright on Photo's



Tony,
The only caveat that I would offer is that, in the US at least, if the image
copyright is registered with the copyright office, there are mandatory costs
and fines associated with copyright infringements independent of damages or
consequential losses.  Otherwise I agree with what you have said and the
main thrust of your point with respect to the pragmatics of any legal
actions in cases like those being considered.

Strictly speaking no, but Sothebys, Christies etc would be out of
business
if anyone took any notice of this. In UK at least, copyright damages
are
usually limited to the consequential loss to the copyright holder, and
in
such instances that is zero. If anything it does their reputation good,
as
a free ad., so nobody is likely to object.
