See IPOS website:
which basically says copyright of a photograph defaults to the commissioner/client
Then see PPA Singapore website: http://ppas.sg/site/index.php?option...&id=7&Itemid=9
Which says " The customer who goes to the studio and asks for his picture to be taken has merely consented to the photographer taking his picture and in return he pays the photographer for that copy of his picture. As far as copyright laws are concerned, the customer does not own the copyright but has merely contracted or paid for a copy of that photograph. He gets that single copy which he paid for but he has no right to make copies of the same unless of course, the photographer allows him to do so."

Both sources are official websites of reasonable credibility but they say the exact opposite things. It is interesting how they differs. Any thoughts and opinions welcomed.
