If you want an extended discussion of copyright law, look elsewhere-- this book is about *taking* photographs, not publishing them. Good information and advice on every page.
Bert P. Krages lays out what is clear, not so clear and pure myths. He provides guidance on how to deal with certain circumstances and the reasoning for doing so.
Photographers also need to be concerned with protecting the rights to their photographs and knowledgeable enough not to practically give away their rights. Along with being concerned for the content and privacy of others when appropriate.
The book covers almost every situation a photographer needs to be concerned with and provides specific examples.
This is well written and illustrated with photographs by the author. It is written for the layman and contains a glossary of legal terms.
And Krages is a good guy. Just because one has a legal right to photograph something, he writes, doesn't mean we should, for ethical reasons.
Put those security goons and pushy police on notice - You know your rights!
This is a must buy!
- easy to read
- covers a wide breadth of subjects
- includes sample legal forms
- includes very useful explanations
- should include more information about recording video since that's built in to so many cameras now
- case law is changing rapidly, so I'd appreciate periodic supplements by state rather than whole new editions
If there's a better and more current legal handbook for photographers available, I haven't seen it.
