Our friends at Legalese have prepared something really special for photographers in South Africa. They’re calling it, The Legalese Photographer’s Guide to Not Getting Sued.
Whether you’re a photographer looking to protect your work or a photo-user wanting to ensure you aren’t using someone’s work unlawfully, these 20 super-varied questions-and-answers should help. The guide has been researched and written by qualified lawyers working in the commercial, intellectual property and creative sector space.
The guide covers photograph ownership, photography rights on social media platforms, photograph permission and steps to take when someone uses an image without such permission. It also cover the legalities around taking pictures in public and of public art.
