Copyright vs. Photosuite
- March 3, 2010 @ 12:13pmJanetCroft says:It's not really a new photo, and it still belongs to the original copyright holder -- because that's not a transformative re-use. A transformative re-use requires a certain amount of creativity on your part, like using the photo as a reference for a painting, or something like that. And even that's murky -- think about the Shepherd Fairey case, where he used a copyrighted photo of Obama for his Hope campaign poster, and the kerfuffle that caused -- incliuding issues about whether the original photo was a creative work! In fact, if you Google the Fairey case you can probably find some pretty useful dicussions of the concept of transformative use.
