Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act

Not Just a Shutter Click

This information was originally found at Not Just a Shutter Click’s blog site.

I felt it was worth sharing….so here is the re-blog–but only in part. Please, click the link and read the FULL BLOG POST here!

The new Act (Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act, which received Royal Assent) that got voted through by government allows all work considered to be an orphan work to get used for free. Orphan works are those works whose creator cannot be found.

What is orphan work? An orphan work is an image that is without IPTC Data… IPTC and metadata is something most enthusiast photographers bother with (you should) but the majority of photographers, especially those in the editorial markets, always fill in full IPTC which show’s the author of the image, copyright, contact details and so on. Well, the majority of websites, social networks and so on strip out ALL of this data. Your work, even something you shot a minute ago and uploaded, just became an orphan work. As such, it can now be used for free and for whatever purpose the thief of the image wants to use if for.

You may be asking what this has to do with you since most of this article/blog post relates to the UK….but the internet isn’t just in the UK or the Unite States, or just one country. If you post something online on ANY social media site, it is in cyber space! It is globally accessible! Think about that. Once it affects one area in a global network, how long before it affects the outer lying areas? We are all connected more so through the internet NOW –today–than ever before.  Think about it….and of course, feel free to leave a comment. 😀
