On today’s Copyright Forum for members of Editorial Photographers (“EP), lawyer Carolyn E. Wright referred photographers to her blog entry on “Copyright Protection for Foreign Photographers” which is very interesting. If you are not a member of EP, you should be – it is $50/year ($25/year for students) and is money well spent. Besides the forums, dialogue with your peers and the articles posted by individuals such as Debra Weiss on “The Value of Photography” , members have access to its CONTRACTS section which features detailed analysis of actual contracts. Whether you wish to shoot for an editorial client someday or not, learning to read contracts is essential, and this tool is a fantastic tutorial. Please encourage your students to join and begin to understand the business of our industry.
