  2. A 1978 B&W sells. Country: Worldwide Usage: Editorial Media: Newspaper - national Print run: up to 100,000. $$ Protesters outside a London appeal court in 1978 following the conviction of the publication 'Gay News' and its editor in 1977 for 'blasphemous libel' for publishing a poem about Jesus having sex with a Roman centurion. In 1977 'Gay News' was fined £1,000 and the editor, Denis Lemon, fined £500 and sentenced to nine months imprisonment, suspended. The Court of Appeal quashed Denis Lemon's suspended prison sentence but upheld the convictions. The prosecution was started by Mary Whitehouse who brought a private prosecution. The poem was 'The Love that Dares to Speak its Name' by James Kirkup.
  3. Someone else suggested, if we don't want images to be found while deletion is pending, replacing the caption with something like qwty and deleting all the tags. Would that help?
  4. I was thinking this morning that climate protest photos don't sell but one just did.

  5. A Wikimedia link with advice on the position in many countries: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Country_specific_consent_requirements
  6. Thank you. Much appreciated.
  7. Does anyone know what flowers these are, please? Taken in Manchester, uk, in August.
  8. If you use that method beware of the deeply rooted bush flying through the back window of the vehicle, as some funny youtube videos show.
  9. The 1911 Act only gave 50 years from the photos being taken. Basically pre 1945 photos in the uk are out of copyright, unless they have been 'revived' as described below. Pre 1945 photos and artwork have very different copyright protection. From dacs.org: "Photographs made before 1st June 1957 These photographs were originally protected for a period of 50 years from the end of the calendar year in which they were taken (regardless of whether they were published or not).If the photograph was still in copyright as of 1 July 1995 however, the period of copyright was extended to the life of the photographer plus 70 years. If copyright protection had expired before 1 July 1995, there was still the chance to "revive" the photograph. An eligible photograph would then be protected by the new term, ie the photographer's life plus 70 years."
  10. My understanding, having put some 1950's theatre programmes on here, and then taken them off after reading this issue up, is that 1950's artwork is in copyright until 70 years after the death of the artist. I assume all adverts are artwork. Photographs are a different matter. One view on the website copyrightaid is "copyright in photographs taken before 1 June 1957, when the 1956 Copyright Act came into effect, are governed by section 21 of the Copyright Act 1911. This applied a standard 50 year term to all photographs, irrespective of whether they had or had not been published."
  11. When I have this problem I click on sell photos at the top, then click on log in and it usually works to get logged in
  12. Sold for only $ for presentation/newsletter but all sales are welcome. Supporters of the Sudanese Uprising campaign in Piccadilly Gardens, city centre Manchester, uk.
  13. I wandered down a back alley one evening in central London a few years ago, mused on taking photos of rubbish in a skip but decided against it. This happened to be behind the embassy of an Eastern European country whose name I have forgotten. A guy arrives in a range rover and aggressively tells me I'm a spy. We have a short angry verbal exchange and I depart.
  14. I see Crowdspark (formerly NewZulu) has gone into administration. I read somewhere on this forum that NewZulu had nearly 20,000 photos, from its contributors, on Alamy. Including a few of mine. Maybe the administrators will sell on any rights to any income. But when agencies collapse there is clearly a risk that the photos still sell but the contact/payment information for the contributors evaporates. Like many, I was also on Demotix where most of the photos, apart from those which went to Getty, evaporated too. Maybe this is just a risk of contributing anywhere? Thoughts?
