    When your photographs aren't your photographs

    Say you took a photograph and then a copy of that photograph sold for 1.2 million dollars.

    That's what happened to photographer, Jim Krantz. And it's all legal under the fair use provision of the copyright laws.

    See the full story here.

    He should not be able to do that IMHO , to me it is copyright infringement.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Here's one of the cases which lead to that being "fair use."

    Interesting reasoning on the part of the court...
