Subject: copyright?



Hi,
I'm not a regular in here, but caught some threads that were crossposted
and became curious, so looked up the subject of copyright and images
posted in the "public domain" - there are so many successful court actions!
But found this particular case that some may find pertinant.
The court ruled in favor of Mr Curry, an ex MTV presenter, after he had
posted to his website a series of pix of a family holiday. Four of these pix
were then lifted and used by a gossip mag, Mr Curry sued and won!
Under the proviso of "some rights reserved" rather than "All rights
reserved".

Any views? Comments?

My server dosen't allow crossposting, so this is a multipost.
Please feel free to flame me
regards
Emma
