    Default ownership of images by company you are employed

    Apparently, it is stated in the civil service terms that whatever one produce while under employment belongs to the employer....so if one is a teacher and takes photos, effectively all these also belong to the school? Especially if its on school trip overseas or fieldtrips? even if taken at your leisure time?

    If one makes money out of photos taken while under employment, it is breaching the contract if one do not report?

    I am just wondering, though I am not aware of any dispute yet. Also where to draw the line.

    I suppose there are other considerations such as whether the mentioned article is done during the stipulated working hours, its relation to the job scope of the individual and whether the creation of the article involves usage of the employer's resources etc.

    Perhaps other members can advise you better on this.

    if the school pay you and ask you to take, the pictures belong to party who commission you.
