Tip for generating more income: How I made $1,000 via Airbnd and VRBO fotoguy 3 4 monthsGlennTremain (2705): I would put terms and conditions on your site and on invoices put the link to it so disclosure is prominent but discreet. Many photographers release copyright so if you have it on your site and in order forms and invoices you protect yourself and not have a negative spot on your brand even though you are in the right. Also don't make it prominent in your email signature or in invoices........just a link to "terms &...

I have done a yacht tour for a private buyer some an agent using the tour Wingman 13 3 yearsWingman (4185): Thanks, there is my URL for "Presented By" already and I am sure out of 1700 unique viewers some of them could have tried to visit my website. The problem is the boat is in USA so it brings me very little value for USA viewers to come to my Australian website. Plus it is not going to be shown there for much longer. The boat has been sold according to the agent and the listing is going to be removed soon. BTW, that listing page...

Copyright question. Astroprojector 13 4 yearsjohnwheatley (244): Clearly there is no legal issue for you. I am not a lawyer, but I have opinions ... Regarding ths painter and gym owner, I would say that an artist can paint their interpretation of anything in the world. They didnt steal the image. What if a painter paints landscape of a strip mall, and there is an Apple store in the mall, so the painter replicates that logo. That painter can sell that painting legally, I'm sure. Painting other artwork seems...

Copyright again RomainReparage 19 5 yearsJwbuckl (337): @Changesin3d Please do not misread what I am writing to you. Nowhere do I write that the 360 cameras are either "low quality" or "not commercially viable". I wrote, "The 360 cameras may at first be defined by their comparatively lower cost to the Pro2, but the features, image quality are nothing alike." Quite simply, the 134-megapixel Pro2 camera will outshoot the 14, 18 and 23-megapixel 360 cameras all day long in...

Does re-use MP tours? fotoguy 4 5 yearsHome3D (3779): @fotoguy - keep in mind that MP tours only exist on MP's servers. If you created the tour, you can simply go into your MP Editor and set the space to "Private". I haven't tried this, but I'll bet it will disappear from or visitors there will simply get a blank screen. This is a perverse benefit of the fact that MP tours cannot be privately hosted. Send a video or your still photos to someone and they "have...

Transfer Model Also Transfers Copyright? DanSmigrod 4 6 yearsGerhard (1484): @DanSmigrod You beat me to it. So a new week starts again. I don't believe this escaped them at all. They need to find ways to word things differently but still do the same thing. You will also see they don't refer to it anymore as photography lol. Maybe they found a very clever FINE PRINT lawyer on FIVERR and is jumping the loopholes. If this company repeats next week all over again, it will be very worrying. But don't we as the...
Sorry Matterport frstbubble 6 6 yearsMetroplex360 (9436): Revising the TOS to comply with International Law might be a great excuse to fix the things that I think were unnecessary to achieve Matterport's goals. I think that this could have been accomplished without the TOS being amended and without scaring everyone. Matterport have great ideas, just reckless methods to accomplish them that ultimately won't make much of a difference to all of the people who are scared and angry.

Matterport: Personal data and authority DanSmigrod 3 7 yearsdtavres (106): I'm also not a lawyer, but I'm very doubtful that Matterport will ever sue a photographer who: a) Bought a camera for $3,000+, b) Paid for the processing and hosting, c) Took the photos, d) Sold the final product to clients The bad press Matterport would get would likely KILL sales of new cameras, which would also cause a potential buyout from Google/Facebook/etc. to be looked at twice, AND would likely also KILL the market for Real...

Ever had your creative work stolen? Helen 10 7 yearsNarvan891 (79): "Walk softly and carry a big stick" as Teddy Roosevelt said aptly long ago! I'd try the genial approach first - contact them and let them know that it appears that they've inadvertently used your creative work without getting the required usage license (temporary or permanent at xx$$ - two different price structures of course) and that it would " really great" for them to be sure to cover that immediately and here's...

Ownership of Matterport Models WarrenVandal 4 9 yearsalx3D (719): I talked about this to Paul at MP before purchasing the camera and I would suggest everyone do the same. We own the content we produce but they do not have let us access it unless we pay them. When you scan something it is like taking a picture. The copyright belongs to you. MP is like a storage shed that stores your stuff. The stuff inside is yours but you have to pay to access it.
Creative Commons Rights? YairYepez 3 10 yearsccctucker (154): This was brought up on another forum, these scans give "bad guys" a map of the house, to include where expensive items can be located. I think what they want to advertise they have would be no different than if panoramics were taken and advertised online.
