Photoeer: Conflating security concerns with privacy issues, with the resulting suboptimal security outcome and loss of one’s privacy is the Merican way.

Thanks for illustrating my point.

ppage: The concerns about privacy seem strange given that we live in a society in which more and more people have cell phones with apps like Siri and Google Assistant that are listening to everything they hear and appliances in the home like Alexa that do the same.

Lees Channel: Well, disregarding Portuguese law due to unfamiliarity, when you are taking photos while on assignment and being paid by your employer to take those photos they belong to the employer. That's true of almost any employment, even medical or scientific. However, in this instance the photo agency is taking such a bizarre stance and bouncing all over the place with contradictory points that they are really weakening their position. Their mindless actions may set a precedent that may upend the photo industry.

Unless you explicitly work for hire, this is not true. I’ve never worked this way- copyright is always mine, the rights I grant vary from assignment to assignment. The grant may be very limited or very opened ended but the images copyright is always mine.

Patent rights are many times heavily negotiated, as copyright may be also.
