how are they going to prevent me from selling that image?
Being in a different country does not necessarily prevent you from getting sued.
I don't think they will, but that's not the point.
Hmm..ok, Well, I take a picture, and redo the color in PS and voila!! It is them my original work of art.
Copyrighting light? Sheesh...seems a stretch there too, but again...daytime shots or PS edited nighttime ones should be ok, eh?
Thanks for the input, and I'll watch the video listed above later this evening...
But seriously...how can someone "copyright" a public building?!?!
I just can't see how that would stand up in court.....
The building is not copyrighted...it's the light display at night which, under French law, is considered a work of art and, if used commercially, requires license fee. Daytime photos of the Eiffel Tower...shoot away all you want.
