Photographs (artistic works)
Who is the author of a photograph?
The "author" is the person or company who owned the initial negative or photograph (for digital photographs) when the image was taken.
Accordingly, to determine the status of copyright of a photo, you must determine the author of the photo or the negative:
- If the author is a person, then the term of copyright is the life span of that person plus 50 years;
- If the author is a company where the majority of the voting shares are owned by the person who "took" the photograph, then the copyright term is the life span of that person plus 50 years.
- If the author is a company in which the majority of shares are not owned by the person taking the photograph (i.e., a newspaper-staff-taken photograph), then the term of copyright is 50 years from the taking of the photograph. (Permitted Exception: Fair Dealing.)
Published text (literary works)
The "owner" of the copyright is the author. The term of the copyright is the life of the author plus 50 years.
The copyright term is the author’s "life plus 50." The holder of the copyright may either be the author or the magazine, if copyright has been transferred by agreement.
