Issues and Common Practices of Photo Editors in Russian News Agencies Caused by Copyright in Photography
2019
This study aims to research the issues and common practices of photo editors in Russian news agencies caused by copyright in photography. A hypothesis is that an absence of systematic common practices of using the other person' photos is a key copyright issue for the photo editors of Russian news agencies since it causes the spending of additional time and financial resources in deciding whether each photo could be used. Judicial cases review and expert interviews are used to prove the hypothesis. With its high practical value, the research allows a photo editor to perform a complex assessment of a possibility to be sued in court in different scenarios of using images, and hence to develop an optimal strategy of balancing between fast illustrating and following intellectual property rights. Experts' knowledge along with judicial cases analysis not only proved the hypothesis but also helped to formulate a number of recommendations for mitigation of law risks in photo editors work with copyright.
