Do You See The Copyright Law Nonsense in Everyday Life? - PPA Today

Do You See The Copyright Law Nonsense in Everyday Life?

By Chris Homer

One of PPA's mission is to campaign for the reform of the current (and inadequate!) U.S. Copyright Law. Our current system does little to protect professional photographers from damages when their work is used without their permission. And this makes no sense as the copyright system is supposed to protect copyright owners like you!

Often times, 'a picture is worth a thousand words' so we created some cartoons to illustrate this cockamamie system. The idea behind these illustrations is two-fold: (1) to share something you'll relate to and (2) give you something you can share with your clients and fellow photographers to convey the inequity in copyright law. You can download both Copyright Infringement illustrations here (in 2 sizes). Consider sharing them on social media today!
