: Dear Matthew,
: I disavow any legal responsibilitly for my unresearch thoughts here.
: The photographer would seem to have the right to take the pictures as news or for his own purpose and he owns these rights and can sell the prints to you without you having a right to the picture. If he sells your picture to others, then your right might be violated.
: I'm not clear on his rights to display them on the web.
: I don't think he has the right to use your picture commercially. The law on that may be beyond the copyright law.
: Your copying though, whether or not you rights have been vioilated may be an infringement on his rights.
: There are other technical questions to consider insofar as registration is concern.
: M. Arthur Auslander
He can sell them to me is what you're saying but not to others? If he has my permission, he can sell to others....regardless if the event coordinator said he could or not?
