Copyrights relate to the person who produces an original artistic work (photo, video, sculpture, collage, etc.), while Image rights relate to the consent of persons who can be recognized on the works.
The right to respect for private life allows everyone to object to their image being used publicly without their consent. So if you make the cover of Here when you weren't aware, your lawyer will be happy to claim damages on the grounds of invasion of privacy. Obviously the probability of finding yourself in this situation increases sharply if your name is Claire Chazal...
The right to be forgotten allows you to request the removal of a photo from a website in the name of protecting your image, which is personal data.
You must be recognizable for image rights to apply.
If you plan to publish the photos of a shoot on your site or your social networks, consider asking the photographer for written permission.
Do you know the difference between a good photographer and a bad photographer? A good photographer, he takes a picture AND... makes you sign a document stipulating that you agree to your image being used ;-)
The key concept is at the time of publication of a photo. Any professional or amateur photographer can exercise his art in the street without anyone finding fault with it. But when publishing a photo on the web, in a magazine or on any other medium, the photographer must protect himself by asking a written and precise authorization from the model(s) .
This contract must specify the conditions of use of image rights in as much detail as possible:
Photographing or filming a person in a private place or transmitting their image without their consent is punishable by one year's imprisonment and a fine of €45,000. Publishing the photo or video without the person's consent is punishable by one year's imprisonment and a fine of €15,000.Source: Public Service
Remember to bring your image rights authorization document which must be written and precise: duration of the agreement, distribution media, objective of the distribution. The ideal being to be able to prepare the document in advance but in "real time" conditions, remember to ask the subjects for their contact details to obtain their consent later and in any case do not publish the photos without these legal documents. or at your own risk.
In France, the intellectual property code governs authors' rights in a broad sense. For example, the creation of computer algorithms, if they are original, may fall within the scope of the law. An author has two legal principles allowing him to protect his work:
Any representation or reproduction in whole or in part made without the consent of the author or his successors in title or assigns is unlawful. The same applies to translation, adaptation or transformation, arrangement or reproduction by any art or process whatsoever.Source: Légifrance
In order to defend their rights and interests, authors' societies have been created (SACEM, SACD, SCAM , ADAGP, SAIF, SCELF, SGDL) as well as neighboring rights distribution societies (SDRM, SPRE, SPEDIDAM, SCPP, SPPF) whose mission is to collect and then distribute royalties to affiliated artists.
According to the principle "not seen not taken", plagiarism is tempting for some. Many media cases bear witness to this: translation of foreign sketches unknown in France by certain comedians, "borrowing" of text extracts without mentioning that it is a quotation by certain authors...
However, anti-plagiarism software has emerged to unmask imposters and the power of social networks can be devastating for cheaters when we put face to face the original version with the copied version. We therefore encourage you instead to develop your creativity to avoid on the one hand shame and on the other hand being "grilled" in the middle.
The main practical problem that arises for beginner authors is their margin of negotiation vis-à-vis a publishing house, a producer or any person who can "make" a career. Some prefer to self-produce by creating independent publishing houses. It's a difficult choice that depends on many parameters including the time and energy available to the artist to develop his commercial network in addition to his creative time. For this reason the profession of artistic agent has greatly developed in recent decades in order to "converge networks": a theater director by contacting a few agents can have access to a range of varied shows.
