Who owns the photographs?
The Copyright Act was amended in the Spring of 2012, under Bill C-11, rectifying the injustice that prevailed hitherto, while the copyright of photographs that were ordered belonged to the client by default.
Canadian photographers are now, by default, the first owners of the copyright of the images they produce, as are illustrators, musicians, painters, and writers with their respective work. This applies to both photographs commissioned and paid by a client, and to photographs taken for non-commercial purposes.
**Please ask my permission to use my photographs in any manner outside of the initial purpose of marketing a listing for sale.
**I have the right to use my photographs for my own advertising, however, I will not reveal the listing address or branding information of the properties.
