: Scenario: A web cam broadcaster, is using a 3rd party site and free broadcast software. Neither claims or disclaims copyright ownership of the broadcast. The site is a free site available to anyone on the internet.
: The broadcaster performs a striptease for general public viewing, exposing themself from head to toe. A viewer, one of hundreds, captures the event displayed on their terminal as a digital image.
: Can the viewer copyright the image? Or can the broadcaster claim using rights to performance?
: What if the viewer posted the image to the internet,on a non-commercial site, disclosing no information regarding the subject other than that offered by the broadcaster themselves, in this case a face and a body? Did this person in this instance negate their right to privacy? What if it was a commercial site? Most likely a web master could only exhibit the material, since use of the digital image to promote the site may infringe on the brodcasters right to publicity....
: just curious any thoughts?
