| p.1 #13 · My photos published in school yearbook without permission!!! |
So, i'm taking photos of my sons school football game. Another parent, also watching her son play, asks me if she can get copies of some photos. I assume she wants photos of her son playing so I say ok. I put some photos on a dvd and give to my son to give to her son at school.
The end result of " assume" strikes again.
Most likely the teacher assumed that since you didn't ask where the pics would be used and gave them away freely, she assumed you wouldn't mind them being published and in fact would get a kick out of it?
Maybe she assumed seeing it was for the school, as a community minded parent you'd be happy to help out?
Maybe she assumed since you gave her copies of a number of kids that you knew who she was and what she would use them for?
She has as much right and ability to make incorrect assumptions as you do and in the absence of any instructions opposite, these assumptions on her part would be entirely reasonable and fair IMHO.
I should have been told where my photos were to be used and for what.
Should you have not asked where they were to be used or told the parent they were for Private use only and not for publication without permission?
Given the pics are your property, I'd say the onus on where they end up is more your responsibility than anyone elses in this case.
You served them up to her literally on a Silver platter. It's not like they were stolen off a site or taken without your knowing or permission. As such, you were in a position to completely control their end use and publication.
I should have least gotten a free yearbook for my son. They sold for $25 each.
Again, I think the "Should"'s apply both ways.
You seem annoyed that someone else didn't do their side of what you didn't bother to do yourself.
Cuts both ways I think.
I'll leave it up to everyone as to what I do
Seems last time you did that, you were very unhappy with the outcome.
Perhaps it may be wiser to take charge and do what you think is right for you rather than what some randoms on the net would do.
