I just got an email from Steve Schlackman an IP attorney and author of ArtLawJournal.com the blog about artistic copyright issues. Steve highlighted a recent blog post titled Six Steps to Safer Image Sharing by Chris Reed that I found very interesting because:
- It features a study of social media sites that tested how each social media site treats metadata in uploaded images.
- It also features Chris’s book, Copyright Workflow For Photographers: Protecting, Managing and Sharing Digital Images.
I purchased a Kindle version of Chris’s book and have quickly paged through it. It proposes a methodical approach to registering, sharing, selling and licensing images and monitoring and enforcing your copyright.
In light of the recent discussion we had regarding Losing Control of Your Copyrights on Social Media both of these subjects will be of interest to real estate photographers who are concerned about protecting their image copyrights.
