In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention. This time we look at Chang Lee, Jonathan Higbee, two jobs 30 years apart, a copyright infringement by tweet and search-and-settle.

  • In A Times Photographer's Journey Home to the Winter Olympics, James Estring talks to Chang W. Lee, who has returned to South Korea to cover the Winter Games for the New York Times. "If you wait until you see it with your own eyes, many times it's too late," Lee said of timing his shots. But you could say that about reunification, too.
  • In A World of Coincidences, Alice Harrison highlights some amusing shots by New York photographer Jonathan Higbee.
  • Kirk Tuck's Very Large Product Shot is a tale of two jobs 30 years apart, one digital and the other film. His approach to both is, well, illuminating.
  • In Federal Judge Says Embedding a Tweet Can Be Copyright Infringement, Daniel Nazer reports photographer the Justin Goldman "accused online publications, including Breitbart, Time, Yahoo, Vox Media and the Boston Globe, of copyright infringement for publishing articles that linked to a photo of NFL star Tom Brady." The ruling in his favor, Nazer writes, threatens "the ubiquitous practice of in-line linking that benefits millions of Internet users every day."
  • In A Tale of a Search and Settle Company's TOS, Greenberg and Reznicki link to fine art photographer Kalliope Amorphous's blog post A Warning To Photographers And Artists Regarding Image Rights International. "Photographers are made to think that registering their copyright is difficult or working with a lawyer yourself is painful, so they will make it easy and simple, with rainbows and lollipops," they write. "What happens is you get pennies to what should be your dollars and all you can afford is lollipops instead of full meals."

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
