I have paid £33.00 so would be grateful for your expert opinion on this.
I think the photographer's intention is sell them to anyone who views them on his website . I have suggested that I don't think he can legally do that but it might be OK to sell them to the person or people in the photograph...but I'm certainly not sure on this at all.
I won't be selling them to anyone, just using for publi
Hi Yes I want to continue please. I have paid £33.00.
I believe the intention of the photographer is to sell them to whoever wants them from his website. I have explained I thought he could only sell them to the people or persons in the photograph, but am really not sure on the whole thing to be honest.
My bit of it is to ask if I can use them for the publicity on fb and the video in the club as outlined in my first email. Thank you Jo. I appreciate your help. I have already had someone telling me I can't show photographs publicly taken at my own event, so just need to be clear.
Yes I thought what your are saying would be the case, but it is so impractical in a club situation.
Could you clarify the position of using the images in a video for use in the club please, and on facebook. Int his situation they havn't been put for sale. They have just been given to me by the photographer for allowing him into the club to take his pictures.
Would it cover me if I were to put a notice up, seen when people enter the venue, saying 'photographs will be taken at this event and maybe shown in a video or on facebook for publicity purposes'?
I fully appreciate it is impractical and indeed, virtually impossible to comply with the legal requirements of what he wants to do.
The same thing applies to using the images in the club and on Facebook. They are classed as public broadcasts even in a private club. Legally, putting the notice up when people enter the venue is of no effect because, there is already case law on that which stated that, people cannot be expected to read every sign on every wall everywhere that they go.
The only legal way round this, although completely impractical, is to get everyone to sign a piece of paper giving consent.
Thank you, ***** ***** clear. Great service.
