Trademarks, Copyrights and Photographing Buildings

A little while ago, we got a question from one of the readers to this blog, Matthew, who asked: “Hello Jack and Ed, one of my bucket list life goals is to see the 1894, 1915, and 1939-40 World’s Fairs of San Francisco digitally reconstructed, so one could explore these bygone historical spaces virtually.

How Copyright Trolls Lighten Your Wallet

What is a group of trolls called? A gaggle, a craven, a drool, a pollution? Scanning the Internet, we actually found a discussion about this and a crèche of trolls seems to be the most popular. We pondered this subject as we’ve seen an infestation of trolls (good one, right?) regarding copyright lately. In two […]
