Hi guys, i have a few questions pertaining to copyright issues.
firstly i understand that when a photographer is hired, the copyright of the photos he take during the employment belong to the hirer right?
so question no1
if we were to use those shots taken and compile as part of our port folio, do we have to seek the permission from the hirer?
are we allowed to watermark our personal logo on the photos when we use it as our port folio?
the singapore copyright law didn't state the lifetime of photograph copyright ownership, does anyone know how long any photograph can be copyrighted?
does copyright ownership takes effect the moment the image is taken or when it is materialized(or finalized with all the editing done), i.e. developed, made into a poster, put online etc.
seeking enlightenment from the experienced or the lawyers among us
