Vincent Lowe Posted April 20, 2019 Share Posted April 20, 2019 The other day, whilst stood on the top of the highest summit of the Coullin Mountains on the Isle of Skye, there occured an event which happens perhaps only once every hundred years or so - I asked my companion to take a photograph of me. On the way down, having successfully negotiated the delights of the Great Stone Shoot, the aforementioned companion (otherwise known as Self Perambulating Mobile Foreground Interest) and I got into a philosophical discussion about copyright. In short - if I hand my camera to another person in order for him/her to take a photograph of me, who owns the copyright? Obviously I argued that the copyright belong to me, the main rationale being..... 'cos it's my camera, innit. He countered with the analogy that if I lent him a typwriter and he produced a literary masterpiece with it I could hardly claim copyright just because it was produced on my typewriter. Discuss... if you've really got nothing better to do. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
