Oh dear, baby can’t find the caps lock key.
AAAAAAWWWWWWWW WHY DONT YOU TELL YO MAMA THAT MARK SHOW USED PHOTOS WITH COPYRIGHT… DONT CRY BRO I UNDERSTAND YOUR CONCERNS BUT YOU CANT SUCK YOUR OWN DICK BY ACTING LIKE A DICK IN THIS EDUCATIONAL VIDEO SO FUCK YOUR MOTHER FUCKING GRANDMA TILL SHE REACH HEAVEN YOU FUCKING MORON
You are incessant. Don’t you have something to photograph that I can later “steal” and use in my videos? Snap to it!
From the UK Intellectual Property Office:
“Fair dealing for criticising or review and reporting current events is allowed for any type of copyright work (except a photograph) as long as it is with a sufficient acknowledgment.”
“Making more than one copy is unlikely to be ‘fair dealing’. (Section 29 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988).”
Also I would say that including it as an example in an instructional video is neither criticism or review of that photo. It is illustration.
Since a picture or piece of art work stands alone (it can’t be quoted from or have an excerpt cut from it), the entire piece can fall under fair use.
In a news article about the photographer, an exhibit, a gallery, a website, the actual piece itself, etc. they can use the picture in the article, and they do. Free speech and free press are why fair use laws came about in the first place.
Since the work has been made available for public review, this video would be a fair dealing in the UK.
That’s your job before you publish and a key part of being a videomaker and a professional. You can get in touch with the Bill Brandt Archive at billbrandt dotcom and license images there.
Well, give Bill a ring and let me know what he says, M’kay?
The use of a photograph is not an “excerpt” it is an entire creative work. Why would anyone ever pay to use a photo if the law was as you suggest? Most photographs in newspapers could be described as being for the purpose of illustration.
Also I can tell you that this video can be viewed in the UK and none of what you have described applies under UK copyright law.
Bill Brandt was a British photographer and his work is being ripped off here for profit. Simple as that.
The video is both instructional and editorial fair use. He is not selling the image or representing it as his work. Whether he makes money directly or indirectly from this video does NOT matter. The Report of the Register of Copyrights lists examples of fair use in court cases and is used as a reference by judges. It shows that courts uphold the use of excerpts (like his example pics) in reviews, criticisms, illustration, or commentary, as well as when showing a work to illustrate a lesson.
Are your Amazon product links affiliate links? If so, that’s commercial profit-making use, not educational.
I detect you’re trying to be a dick. This is an educational video and my use of those images are covered under fair use.
Impressed. How much did you have to pay to include those copyright photos by the likes of Bill Brandt?
Nice video, well explained!
Yeah. Having your hand on the camera for long exposures is a horrible idea. Remote all the way.
Kmart – Correction
I recently saw a camera in a pawn shop sold as a TLR FOCAL. It’s an old Walmart brand SLR, and when you hold the button down, the shutter stays open for as long as you hold the button. Would this camera allow me great shots at night for the time the shutter is open, or should I have a camera with a remote instead, so it’s not all jittery?
I’ve heard a lot about the Rebel, thank you!
Do all DSLR camera’s have manual focus for video-ing at night, and what is a good affordable DSLR that will allow me to manually focus for night video?
Thanks Mark! Really inspiring seeing the Brassai and Brandt shots.
For best image quality you really need a good optics.
