Photographers who do not understand their basic rights tend to approach legal issues with blissful ignorance, extreme caution, or reckless abandon. Foolish souls may cross the lines to obtain images, while overly cautious photographers may miss out on once-in-a-lifetime opportunities in fear of legal repercussions. In the end, each of these photographers suffers as a result of not understanding the legal issues associated with photography. In this book, intellectual property attorney and photographers-rights advocate Bert Krages spells out exactly what you need to know to protect yourself and your business when planning, shooting, publishing, and selling your photography. -- Bert P.
