What Happens to “YOUR” Real Estate Photographs, Who Really Owns Them?

May 23, 2016 - Updated: May 23, 2016

What Happens to “YOUR” Real Estate Photographs, Who Really Owns Them?

 

Previously, we looked at the matter of copyright and concluded that the real estate photographer retains the “copyright”. You bought the first copy, so you actually have a licence to use the photographs and videos that you commissioned.

 

So, do you actually have a licence for those photographs and videos?

 

Maybe and maybe not!

 

John Burke works for ABC Realty. He is actually an employee. As an employee, everything he does or says, or purchases or acquires in the course of business, he does for ABC Realty. The company has the licence, not John, even though John paid for the pictures and videos out of his own money.
