Ice storm book

The News-Leader is selling a book of photos of the ice storm "taken by our photographers and our readers."

I wonder if my ice storm photo made it... Guess I'll have to shell out the bucks to find out.

Actually I did know about the book. They emailed me and asked for permission to use my photo in the book. Pretty cool. The book seems a little pricey.

Can they do that...use your picture without your knowledge?
And I agree with Matt.....this book is outrageously over-priced. Put your name on the list for a copy at the library. That way you can see if its worth shelling out all that money for it. That's what I'm doing. I'd like to see it before I make a coffee table book or save it for my children.

When you submit it to them it's basically theirs, I've had another image I submitted show up in another publication of theirs.

However, since I didn't get an email, I'll assume I didn't make it. :(

I'm not at all sure of that Duane ... I will have to go back and read what is on the submission page, but (a) you have to sign away your copyright ... or positively give it away ... no ambiguities allowed. amd (b)my photo also has a "creative commons" license in that it cannot be used for commercial purposes. I don't think the creative common has ever been tested in court ... but I would hate to think they would be playing fast and loose enough to create a case.

It's good that they ask permission, if you give it all well and good ... I have always agreed when someone wanted to publish one of mine .. but I would be a lot torqued if they didn't get it first.

Give Tony a call and ask him...

Another advantage to actually registering your copyright ... if someone violates it it gets really expensive for them ... unregistered it is only worth the "commercial value" .. what? $10?
