I was working on a different post when someone posted a picture of a book cover on my trainer’s Facebook wall with kind of an interesting dilemma. You see, the horse and rider pictured is her!
Just for own curiosity’s sake, how do rights work in this kind of situation? I know the publisher and/or author have to get permission from the photographer and I know it’s legal to take photos of other people at public events/ in public spaces without permission (though it’s always courteous to ask). Are the photographer’s rights the only ones that matter? Anyone know? Like I said, just curious, it doesn’t seem like JLE cares a bit though it certainly surprised her.
Personally I’d be flattered but, then again, Dandy and I aren’t really in a spot in our lives where someone’s going to be taking photos of us and splashing them across the internet. Except for me of course…
I’m probably going to have to check this series out now. Happy reading!
