Copyright on pictures

The copyright for a picture is easy. At least from where I learned it here in Sweden: the maker of a picture/illustration have the unbreakable, automatic copyright for it. That´s it.

It´s been that way for decades. Every publisher with some routine knows that. Maybe they sometimes takes some risks, but they know it.

I can shoot a picture and distribute it where ever I want to ( Facebook, Twitter, my blog, Site etc ) . If a customer want to use it, they have to buy the right from me to publish it. No matter where I have showed the picture before. It´s easy!

There is a really interesting article on Media Nation about this concerning a picture shot on Haiti during the earthquake.

Well worth the reading!
