Re: Strangely enough ...copyright complications

"Image copyright is horribly complicated. The maker of the image owns copyright in the image. If someone is permitted to take a photo of the image then they have copyright of the new image, but so (usually) does the original photographer!"
Ain't that the truth? I'm a member of the Australian Copyright Council and beneficiary of royalties therefrom.

The photograph in question is old enough the photographer is more than likely dead. Nobody knows who the photographer was, or if they do they've stayed schtum for a very long time.
