Re: Copyright law
In reply to diverroy, Feb 9, 2013

It wont have any effect on our images, in fact it is a good ruling for photographers.

The fashion house was restricting photographers use of their own photos in the same way that music performers are starting to do. It isn't clear from the article if the fashion house was claiming copyright ownership of the images (via a contract with the photographers) or claiming that the images infringed the copyright on their designs (which it wouldn't). In either case this ruling is good because it doesn't affect the fashion houses rights in their work but it does confirm the photographers rights in theirs.

One bad part of the article is the quote from Rick Falkvinge, founder of the Pirate Party. His claim that people seeding/distributing a political documentary (that they don't own) isn't going to be punished is unrealistic.
