Respecting Other's Copyrights - The Saga Continues
Take, for example, the photographer who made a book containing photographs of graffiti. The New York Times has the full story. He intended to share these beautiful works with others. He suffered under the misconception that many have - if art is freely accessible to the public, it must be ok to shoot. But it's not. See my prior blog here for another example. Note that not being able to track down the artists is not an excuse.
The publisher has now pulled the book off of the shelf. It is astounding that no one, including the publisher, realized that the photos infringed on the graffiti artist's work. Perhaps this lesson will show how we must learn about respecting copyrights - ours and others.
Take my advice; get professional help.
