Who owns your photos? And how do you retain the rights?

April 2015 – Texas high school student told the school owns his photos.


What would you do if you were told you don’t own the images you took. Happened to a high school senior here in Texas.

So he posts this to his Flickr account instead.

Sophomore in high school. Several state and national groups came to his defense. He has since changed how he does things and with his own equipment.


 2011 – And still going on today. The Monkey Selfie


Photographer sets up the photo but doesn’t take the actual picture. Yep you guessed….. it went to court.
