Simple as it reads.
Nowadays, photographers needs to expose their work on blogs, but blogs needs photographers? You tell me.
As my previous essay about What we need to know: Male Photo Blogs, photographers they have no time to present their work, draw into popular bloggers to exhibit their work.
Some of my colleagues doing for free, some of them not, bloggers want to increased and catched you eye to see their new post to show up.
But are photographers willing to know whats behind every post?
Does bloggers are aware of the risk in submiting work has copyrights?
Photographers need so much of blog in whatever your case, because you don’t have the time to share, tagged, sized, cropped, CEO every damn picture you own to post to your website. Most of the cases, photographers have awful site.
Photographers are here to capture and gain money, and bloggers are here to spread the word and make you rich? Mmmm…
Unless you are a great talented and most popular and high paid photographers like Mariano Vivanco, Mario Testino, fashion photographer Steven Klein, Steven Meisel, barely use blogs like models.com / Vogue.com their work ran directly into print magazines.
But doesn’t mean that a new photographer can’t share their new work to bloggers, means that everybody need to know their own rights about this, and be aware to do appropriate exhibition.
From copyright holders to DMCA copyright, according to learn from today, bloggers people who write about, comment, critics a simple photo can be sued in the United States if you are violating to copyright owners.
Depends on your host, but DMCA is: The creator of original material (text, images, songs, etc) has copyright over that material; this is the right to decide who can use that material, as well as where and when that use is authorized. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (or DMCA for short) is a US federal law that allows copyright holders to remove unauthorized uses of their copyrighted materials, and protects online service providers who comply with the DMCA process from legal liability. The law is meant to provide a balanced process: copyright holders are responsible for enforcing the rights they have in their work, and online services have a legal incentive to honor all valid takedown requests.
We are aware that photographers needs to protect their entire work. Because their living from, as we living to publish and write about any subject. We are agree that photographers are adding water logo marks on each on every picture. Because we know are people who try to owns their job. But this is 2016.
In almost 6 years of blogging, there’s one thing I have learned from this. Do not hang you from the work of others. You can not get appropriating the work of others. Is clear and simple.
Is a basic simple rule from bloggers, if you repost the work from others you have to give credits. We are agree.
Google has find ‘free-to-use’ images, when you do a Google Search, you can filter your results to find images, videos, or text that you have permission to use. To do this, you’ll use an Advanced Search filter called “usage rights” that lets you know when you can use, share, or modify something you find online.
Removing Content From Google
Google will help you get to the right place to report content that you would like removed from Google’s services under applicable laws.
The four factors of fair use:
1. The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes
Courts typically focus on whether the use is “transformative.” That is, whether it adds new expression or meaning to the original, or whether it merely copies from the original.
2. The nature of the copyrighted work
Using material from primarily factual works is more likely to be fair than using purely fictional works.
3. The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole
Borrowing small bits of material from an original work is more likely to be considered fair use than borrowing large portions. However, even a small taking may weigh against fair use in some situations if it constitutes the “heart” of the work.
4. The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work
Uses that harm the copyright owner’s ability to profit from his or her original work by serving as a replacement for demand for that work are less likely to be fair uses.
Remember, it is your responsibility to understand the relevant law and whether it protects the use you have in mind. Working with both Google and WordPress they refused you to help you with legal advice.
Bottom line, if you are new photographer and wants to spread the whole damn work you have created, well first of all read and know whats your right about copyrights and credits.
But be aware of the whole damn work bloggers do for you.
If you really enjoy this kind of writing about who’s in front and behind of every lens, let me know, this week I will present several subjects to discus about.
