We have many people who scan images from books, etc. In those cases we give copyright as applicable, as public domain if they are old. Is the case different in case we take photos from art? Warm regards, Ashwin Baindur -- On Wed, Jun 29, 2011

HmmI guess the choice is personal here - copyrightable captures that well. And if a copyright is chosen, perhaps sweat of the brow reasoning applies? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweat_of_the_brow). anyways, the license chosen in this case is not restrictive. On 29-Jun-2011, at 11:46

Noopur, please clarify about the difference between a camera photograph and a scanned photograph. I am not clear how a photograph automatically gains the status of a work of art, unless this is a legal definition and is not meant to be analysed from an 'artistic' point of view. On Wed, Jun 29,
