Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Intellectual property attorneys DuBoff and King have designed this comprehensive guide to answer the business and legal questions of professional photographers. The book lives up to its plain English billing without dumbing down explanations of complex intellectual property, copyright, privacy, and licensing issues. The authors tackle the business end of professional photography with chapters on insurance, contracts, taxes, and leases. An especially good section on estate planning will help commercial and art photographers take steps to preserve the value of their work for the future. Appendixes offer business forms, a table of full citations to the court cases referenced, and contact information for professional photography associations. VERDICT Newly updated material on the evolving laws regarding publicity rights for the images of deceased celebrities, a discussion of post-9/11 restrictions on photographing public facilities, and the online registration procedures at the Copyright Office make this a suggested purchase.—Joan Pedzich, Harris Beach PLLC, Rochester, NY
