Great Victory For Canadian Photographers

That’s the headline on a news release issued moments ago by The Canadian Association of Professional Images Creators (CAPIC) announcing that Canadian photographers now own the copyright on the images they shoot.

Details are forthcoming but if I read this right it means we photographers now will retain the legal rights to the images we produce.

This of course applies mainly to professional photographers but we’ll have to wait and see how it changes what we do and how we do it.
