: We, as a college, often hire photographers to photograph persons or college events. Upon receipt of and payment for those photographs, can we then scan and reproduce them for distribution to the press?
You own the pictures but not the right to use them unless you have a clear written agreement.
I had a client who paid a friend, photographer to take pictures. The client then painted an image of one picture as a sign at the place of business.
The client was sued. They had not consulted me before all this happened.
