Court Rules Photo Credit Removal a DMCA Violation

Many photographers try to make the lame assertion that they don't care about money, just seeing their work being used, or a photo credit, is all they care about. Well, for those lame-o's, and the rest of us who actually earn a living making pictures, there is now money to be gained when someone removes your photo credit.

As reported by the Copyright Litigation Blog (here), the employees of subjects in a photograph infringed on the photographers rights when scanning the magazine that resulted from the a photo assignment and posting the image online.

While the joke may well still be "will work for photo credit", the reality is "photo credits can work for you."

Yet, friends, one more reason you should be registering your work. Lame-o or not, this is business folks. Business.
