Hi littleWolf, thanks for your input. I'm sure your views above is also on some other CSer's mind. What we hope to achive here is to gether diff POVs from as many as possible.Originally Posted by LittleWolf
While there are those who will not mind the T&Cs, we wish them best of luck. For those who are not aware of the implication of the T&C, we hope to inform them. To those who just pop in to take a look, we hope to create some awareness of a photographer's rights.
Don't be surprise that some org may not even be aware of the photographer's rights/views, they just want to cover their behind so that their boss will not blame them in case something happens. To these org, we hope to inform them of the views from the other side of the lens ( that's why some of us have written to them, spoke to them, etc ). At the end of the day, copyrights of photographer here is still at "third world stage".
While orgs have the freedom to set the T&Cs, we hope that in time to come, photography works and photographers will be better respected by org of photography competations. At the moment, photography competation is used by some org to get large no. of images to build a stock for the org. Belive me, this happen to a friend working in an org and the boss ask them to run a competation with this in mind. He ask for my opinion and I advise him about the pros and cons. He went back, told his boss and they debated about this. Good thing is that his boss finally agreed that it is not a good idea and drop the idea. BTW my friend just got promoted this year.
