(And if not, is that why you’re being sued?) Here’s some facts that will surely shake your world…
I have been sued by photographers about my IPs – on the Internet http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2135122/Hans-Rudolf-Rudolfs-photography-s-SOCAL-PROFITS.html “Hans Rudolf’s legal fees have cost the company more than £100,000 and are expected to be around £100,000 in total.” Hans Rudolf was sued over his photos, even though he took them himself and nobody complained on the Internet – the case was settled in 2004 for an undisclosed amount of money (no word on whether it was a lawyer’s fee or “reward”) which means that, on a “case-by-case basis, we don’t necessarily think that Hans Rudolf’s photos are in the public domain.” “Hans, who was also the director of the Magnum photographic agency, filed a lawsuit accusing Magnum of copyright infringement. Magnum is fighting the lawsuit, but Hans is claiming damages of around £100,000.” “I am a member of the Magnum family and I own a good deal of their pictures. I’m very aware that the photos are available both on the Internet and in print. There were many requests to get the photos available, but unfortunately I haven’t done that. I have put a stop to that. I am very aware that the photos are in the public domain. A case has been pending in France against Magnum for the copyright infringement but we are currently facing a lawsuit in England over the images. In England there is a copyright statute, the ‘Common Law’, that protects works for a hundred years, but a new statute protecting copyrights lasts seven years. However, the court in the UK ruled that the ‘Common Law’ does not cover copyright as it had not been decided by law. For the moment, it’s in limbo.
The photo with the monkey is just my interpretation of it – it’s not an actual monkey
