I need advice about how to ensure a photo shoot and the resulting photos will be privacy protected. [more inside]
My company has posted my photo along with those of other employees on its website. I'm not comfortable with having my picture online, in any context, and would like to ask that it be removed. I'll ask politely, but if my boss insists that it stays, I'd like to know what my rights are. I wasn't asked for permission. I'm in BC, so I guess I'm wondering particularly about BC laws and/or precedents. Please advise, so I know where I stand!
How does the New Yorker control the rights to the infamous Abu Ghraib photos? [more inside]
A major publisher has approached me about using a photograph that I posted on my website that was originally taken by my dad (who, for reference, passed away a few years ago). According to the person who contacted me, the image would take up about a half-page in the interior of the book and they are interested in a quote for both world and North American rights. Can anyone give me a notion of what sort of compensation would be normal for this sort of thing and what the correct procedure might be? Thanks!
