where's the TS??
Eat breath LIVERPOOL!!!
Side's I am currently having a fever and not in the right condition to reply too. Sorry if anyone here wants my view.
whether the point of views are put across nicely and appropriately is again another issue, but just as important for a healthy forum.
So lancey, on what grounds do you say that's being narrow?
I'm not sure if the whole thread is going off topic already. Any Mods care to review and see?[/QUOTE]
I don't take these personally, to be frank. I'm here to share my perspective as a professional, not forcing anyone to buy what I have to say. If people wants ridicule or insinuate anything, let them. There will always be armchair critics with their 2-liner remarks, not just in this thread, well, their response just simply show how much they actually know or don't know.
I believe what everyone has to say will shed some lights in things that we tend to overlook, at the same timing opening another can of worms
The sort who ends up spending his next immediate future in court and behind bars.

Anyway, all welcome to shoot wedding and taste the taste to experience it.

yes you are a guest of the couple and the pro is an employee of the couple, in my opinion, he needs to be as polite and courteous to the other guests as to the couple. not letting anyone else take pics as a way of defending your territory is pretty sad as the pro must not have very much confidence in his work, as long as the uncle was not in the way or his flash was causing problems then i can not imagine there would be a problem, and i were the man paying for this guy to be there , I would have been along the lines of outraged that he would treat the guest poorly.
pros need to remember that they are in the service industry not just the photography industry, and customer service is very important.
A commericial shoot
Because of someone copying the shoot and selling it, $ is lost. Photographer sues for loss due to your unauthorised action. If photographer is able to prove his case and court agreeds, court award damage base on the loss suffered.
A non commericial shoot ( ie; a weddeing )
Though someone copy the pose. Photographer still get paid in full. There's no $ loss to the photographer. Even if the photographer sues for copying his pose and wins the case. How do court award damage as there's no loss of $ ( remember, photographer still gets paid in full ), no harm was done and the guest are invited by the couple ( the photographer's employer ), so it'll be a hard case to fight.
I get paid more shooting part time ...... damn, I should find more time to shoot part time
regardless of damage suffered/awarded or commercial/non-commercial use, the copyright owner (we are assuming there is something that can be copyrighted in the first place which obviously doesn't apply here) can get court orders for the copyright violator to turn over all copied works and derivatives.....
the issue of awarding legal costs to the copyright owner is also another issue, not quite sure what is the basis for awarding costs....
Ah, well I was referring to liability, and you are referring to assessment of damages. Both are distinct concepts in law.
In your initial post, I read it to mean liability. Since you said "can sue" or "cannot sue".
If however you said that "It would be economically more viable to sue in if infringement occurs in a commercial use case, and not so economically viable to sue in a non-commerical use infringement case", then its a different situation.
As an analogy, for the same facts and legal situation, it is more economically viable to sue a big corporation with deep pockets than it is to sue a man of straw who has no money.
However, both of these do not detract from the fact that liability will be found, whether or not the defendant has money, or whether or not the defendant used it in a commercial setting or non-commercial setting.
I hope that this helps.
OH, Didn't u say :
" Well, I don't consider myself as a top end pro.."????
but now you want to differentiate yourself from the average Joe?? because credit means a bomb to you? Make up your mind what u r .
