Hi all.not even sure if this thread is in the right place,if not,Admins n Mods,pls move it.
I was @ an autograph session held by a record company.Was very surprised to hear from the DJ saying that the company does not allow any form of videography n professional photography at all as reason stated was that the company owns all copyrights.another reason is they say photographers r selling the pics....
The event was held in a shopping mall where everyone and anyone can see n hear the event..
How is it that they hold "all copyrights" is what interests me.if i record a show via tv to watch on a later date,do they have copyrights on that recorded show?? sounds weird,right?that alone just sounds funny to me.
Most of the photofraphers take these events for personal use or pics to share with others via forums/websites/blog.unless stated by the record company @ the event itself(as stated above what happened)i guess selling of the pics is ok??
what r ur thoughts on the matter?
