: OK two hypothetical senarios here:
: 1. A person has photographs taken of them by a photographer working on behalf of Playboy Magazine. Who retains the copyright. Playboy, the photographer?
: 2. A person submits a photograph that had been taken by someone else who was not affiliated with Playboy. It most likely was not taken by a professional photographer. Does the individual relinquish his/her right to the image to Playboy?
2. There are at least two sets of rights here.
