: My nephew created a web page of my artistic photos 3 years ago and now I have an agency in India who wants to reproduce them for electronic textbooks. None of the photos have been registered for copyrights but I believe my nephew stated that they were not for use in the public domain. In the 80's I read that if you claimed a copyright you were covered. Also does the term "all rights reserved" cover me under the international treaty?
Dear Ms. Pearce,
There is basic protection under the copyright law as well as international protection. There are intenational treaty rights too. I don't remember off hand if India is a treaty memeber. India up until recently, I believe, has been somewhat the laggard in their protection of international rights.
All rights reserved", is part of a Latin American copyright treaty. The big one is the UCC.
Without research I believe that you can be protected in India. There is a lot more you can do in the US.
