Copyright issues

Photographers own the copyright to their images from the moment of creation, according to the Copyright Act of 1976. Once you click the shutter, you’re the creator and copyright owner without having to register it. This means if the unauthorized use of an image occurs (and it frequently does), you could be entitled to compensation.

However, if your images aren’t registered and someone uses them without permission, the only thing you can collect are usage fees. If an image was grossly infringed on and you feel entitled to additional compensation, including attorney’s fees, you won’t be able to collect punitive damages without a copyright registration. So it’s in your best interest to register your images for copyright protection. Read more here>>http://www.successdigestonline.com/the-essential-legal-guide-to-running-a-photography-business/
