Re: Timescales for IPEC Small Claims Track Cases

If the IPEC SCT were overloaded with cases I could understand it, but apparently they don't have an overly high case load. They share a building with the bankruptcy court so it is quite busy. The system seems to be that the staff who handle the paperwork cannot be fired by the judges so the judges ...

Re: Timescales for IPEC Small Claims Track Cases

The court seems to be staffed by people with a civil service mentality that nothing is urgent. My one case at IPEC took ages to come to a hearing. When the hearing started my infringer stated that he had sent his one page outline of his defence some time before. The judge sent a clerk to look for it...

Re: WW2 Naval Publication Maps

I usually had to wait six weeks for replies from publishers when seeking permissions.

One thing you might try is the Smithsonian in Washington. After the war they scooped up thousands of documents and make copies available for very low fees

Re: Pixsy.com email re use of photo on website demanding fee

1. "That means that 99% or more of the images on Google are copyright protected." The word 'image' is not synonymous with 'photograph', On that basis, obviously, the proportion of copyright-protected photographs is quite a lot less than 99% of all images found on ImageSearch. Dear Andy, Sorry to nit...

Re: Latin Mottos

While not relevant I can't resist telling.... I once sold rights to a photograph used in a Latin textbook. The invoice read :- To non-exclusive Latin language rights.

"either way photos should have watermarks on them,..anything google shows in google images people can easily take copies of. Photographers need to mark every photo they show on the internet clearly , maybe in the bottom right etc. " Every single one of my infringements have been from printed materia...

Re: Pixsy.com email re use of photo on website demanding fee

" I consider what theyre doing to be blackmail if not a scam."

As a photographer I regard people who lift images off the internet without making any attempt to find the owner and pay them to be the true scammers.

Re: Basics - magazine work

This is just about standard practice its been done so many times by publishers over the years. Not only do they promise the designer future work but also everyone else involved, photographers, writers, researchers etc. You will have to do what I and many others have done and learn from experience.

Re: Musical Arrangement for Ringtones

I was once talking to a composer about how many notes of music could create a copyright work. He held up four fingers. The Channel 4 ident theme. He also told me that it was the biggest earning 4 notes.

Re: Old French Postcard images

You say the images are "culled from the internet". This could create a few problems if any retouching or alteration was done on the internet images creating a new claim for copyright. A trip to a collectors' brocante in France would provide you with masses of material and a far better quality of rep...

Re: Selling framed vintage magazines and books

I'm not sure about Exhaustion of Rights. Doesn't that only apply to the original product category? What if the photographer had sold rights to the cover image to a gallery to sell framed prints exclusively? Magazine cover rights are one thing and framing rights another. I used to sell my images as p...

Re: European Court of Justice, Renckhoff, Cordoba

I have read a few comments about German law which differ from the UK. I think there is a difference here because it was the school which published the image. But also the article was not a review of the photographer's work.

Re: Images on public blog

This has been asked on another forum. I just don't understand why you don't simply ask permission. Firstly, it is the polite thing to do. Secondly, you will get experience of communicating with the subjects of your thesis. And, finally, you might get more material from your subjects than is normally...
