…Basically, copyright is the right to copy a work. It is not limited to making a profit, so those comments you see on youtube music videos saying ‘I don’t own the material so you can’t sue me’ are pretty much… less than useless. Sorry guys…
Great article on the basics of Copy Right and why you should ask your photographer before selling prints.
My sister cosplayed Ririchiyo from Inu x Boku SS this weekend at Animethon in Edmonton. The one thing I’ve noticed since I started working for the local newspaper is that when I do get a day off to do something like this, I’m almost tired of my camera and asking for names to go with pictures, permission, etc. that I simply don’t take many pictures at all. In hindsight, there was so many people I wanted to take pictures of that had amazing costumes, but there’s always next year.
Alberta might not normally have overbearing humidity, ridiculous heat, or hurricanes, typhoons and earthquakes, but occasionally we get some really nasty wind that does a lot of damage. I spent a good portion of Friday trying to keep my camera safe from the elements as I followed around city workers and tracked down damage throughout the city.
