That's kind of like photographers placing watermarks across their images or enforcing their copyright when images are copied. Other artists also have the right to control the way their products are copied. Instead of supporting another artist, you just made photographers look hypocritical.

Think of it this way, if you had a booth and were selling prints, would you accept random photographers making copies of your prints? There is more than one set of laws out there.

Of course I wouldn't want someone making copies of my prints and I see you point. I wasn't up close taking pictures of his products, but just taking a picture of the complete booth. I can see where he would be worried about it, but he came across as a jerk instead of asking politely.

You chose to ignore his sign. You should have approached him and asked if you could take a snap or 2. I've rarely had issues when I approach and ask in situations like this.

The lack of politeness was on your side, not his.


In hindsight, I guess it would have been a good idea, but I wasn't taking a picture of individual products, but of the complete booth, but if he had asked me in a nice tone, I would have been more accommodating to his wishes.

Next time, I will avoid the situation.
