Wolff Packs Pages With Critical Stock Photo Legal Lingo
Nancy Wolff, legal counsel to the Picture Archive Council of America (PACA) has written "The Professional Photographer's Legal Handbook". The book provides a comprehensive overview of the many legal issues that bear on creating, publishing and licensing still and motion imagery and illustrations.
"This is a must-read for anyone engaged in any aspect of the stock image industry," said Cathy Aron, Executive Director of PACA. "Her clear writing style makes complex subject matter enjoyable and enlightening to a broad audience."
Wolff has been a frequent speaker throughout the United States and Europe on copyright, new technology, and licensing. "The Professional Photographer's Legal Handbook" represents a compilation of seven years worth of contributions to PACA's bi-weekly newsletter.
Often citing real life cases, Wolff explains pressing legal matters that photographers and their representatives in PACA may need to face. Key topics include requirements, limits, and enforcement of copyright and trademark; fair use and public domain; first amendment considerations; the law of privacy and publicity, ramifications of publication of images on the Internet, and many more.
