MISSION STATEMENT - This site is dedicated to professional music photographers. Our mission is to advocate sound business practices, warn against predatory client practices, provide helpful and educational resources, and foster a sense of community. All discussions related to capturing, processing, cataloging and licensing music photographs are welcome.
Copyright laws provide legal protection for the author of a copyrighted work, or owner of the copyright. These laws put in writing the rights controlled by the copyright owner, and the penalties that can be imposed when those rights are violated. In order to get the maximum protection available under the law, take these steps before you become the victim of copyright infringement, and be disciplined about them.
It is imperative that you protect yourself and your work before you become the victim of copyright infringement. Take the time to register all of your photographs with the requisite copyright authority in your country and be disciplined about doing this after every assignment.
