1114.6 (I) Identifying the Author of the Photographs

1114.6 (I) Identifying the Author of the Photographs


As discussed in Section 1114.1, all of the photographs must be created by the same author.


When an individual photographer shoots a photo, that person is generally considered the author of that work. However, when a photographer is hired to shoot a photo as a work made for hire, the person or organization that hired the photographer or the party that ordered or commissioned the photo is considered the author of that work.
