Great News for Canadian Photographers

Mine. Mine. Mine. All Mine.

As a photographer, fan and regular user of WordPress, and from my love of, and support for the tech community in Victoria B.C., I spoke at WordCamp Victoria 2012 on the topic of Copyright and joined my friend and colleague, Janis La Couvee. The title of our session was Disclosures, Attribution and Copyright.

As an update to the blog post above (follow the links) I’d like to say Congratulations! and a big YaaaHoooo!

Today, November 7th is a great day for Canadian photographers, who have finally won the battle to own what was always rightly theirs, image ownership via copyright to their own work.

“As of today, Canadian photographers now officially own the copyright to all of their work whether the photograph is commissioned or not, thanks to the new Copyright law.”

Here’s a link to the full article that explains the great news, from the Canadian Association of Image Creators (CAPIC) with their blog post titled, A Great Victory for Canadian Photographers and they will have more news posted in the coming week, I understand.

Canadian Photographers OWN Their Own Copyright. It’s now time to CELEBRATE!!

Finally! Copy. RIGHT.
