Who owns Copyright?

The key points are as follows:

  • Unless there is an agreement to the contrary, Popcorn Photography Australia Pty Ltd owns Copyright to all images. All Photographers waive their rights to ownership and use and may not (including but not limited to) keep, use, display, promote, advertise any images taken for and under the Company.  Doing so will be seen as a breach of Copyright and legal action will be taken against any Photographer who does not abide by this.
  • Popcorn Photography Australia Pty Ltd - Owners of copyright have the exclusive right to: reproduce the photographs—for example, by making prints, photocopying, and digitising; publish the photograph (make copies of the photographs available to the public for the first time); and communicate the photograph to the public—for example, by putting the photographs onto a website, broadcasting or faxing them or emailing digital files of them.
  • Dealings with Copyright - Copyright owners can assign (sell) or license (permit others to use) their rights, with or without limitations (such as the type of use, or period of time), and with or without conditions (such as payment).
