    Could be worrying for us in terms of the suggestion that copyright can't automatically be created on private property ( or of private property?)


    Not clear if this is about registering a trademark or copyright.

    I think this more about the fact that he refuses to reveal his true identity and therefore copyright can't be properly attributed.
    As long as you finally reveal your true identity, I think you'll be OK "Ian".

    Wedgwood Blue Jasperware Trinket Box.

    Media: Non-commercial, one time, personal/home use

    Fingers crossed you don't get it refunded because someone thought they were buying the box....

  3. There are endless threads on this forum and elsewhere about people taking copyright pics from the internet and putting them to various uses without paying or crediting the photographer.

    Also complaints about customers paying $9.99 for 'Personal Use' and using them for advertising.

    It's very easy to do.

    It's very difficult to stop, catch, or get anything back from those responsible.

    It's very easy to get away with.

    Many people argue that any image on the web is 'fair game'.

    Does that make it ethical or acceptable?

    I wouldn't say the same because taking photographs is not theft.

    That seems to me  an odd comment to make on a professional forum.



    "If you were not prevented from taking photographs they are fair game" seems to suggest 'getting away with' something that isn't really allowed.
    If ( I stress IF) a condition of attending an event is that you don't take any photos for commercial use, then the idea that if you don't get caught it's OK is hardly, I would suggest, "professional".

    "Taking photographs is not theft" is an argument I have heard endlessly from those who copy and reuse photos they find on the internet.
