@ClaraOnager You are completely wrong in your comment. Neither do i want remuneration for his work, or would i want him not to be compensated for his work, which he has already by the way, he has sold the pictures to somebody else.

@mattdm continuing... It's not fair. But, it's ok, i just wanted to know about my rights, i do feel it's unfair, but if it's the law, it's the law. It's not something i'm gonna lose any sleep over, if it was and i felt it was hurting my image, i would do something about it, like suggesting changes to the law.

@mattdm Well, but then in reference to your other post, if we were to compare, a radio station pays and artist, or label for the rights to display their work. So there's where i feel the difference. I didn't get compensated, and neither did i want to. I just feel i should be able to display the photographs crediting him since they show my work. Now, again, i don't disagree with you, and i also agree that sharing an mp3 is a good practice. But, It's like me being an artist, that didn't get paid by a satellite radio station to have my music played, and yet, i have to pay to listen to the station

@mattdm It is a beautiful picture, and as i said before, i don't discredit him for it. Now my interest was to display his work (my work through his lenses) crediting him for it. I don't see how that could be hurting him. He's certainly not crediting me for my work on his pictures. Point is, i believe it's wrong for me to have to pay for that. And as is said, i would've acted differently. This is a 4 year old picture in which he has made his share on it already. That being said, just as a matter of principle, we are photographing that ourselves.

@Blrfl I agree with you, i definitely do. But the same way i could generate revenue from his work, he has from mine already. That's the way i'm looking at it.

@AnindoGhosh if i had any intention in doing that, i wouldn't come here or email the office of copyright. So, at least read the question.

@mattdm No, and quite frankly, i don't see how the two are related. Comparisons of this type won't help the conversation. A book takes a lot longer to create, and it's not guaranteed to sell even a single copy. Although i would definitely appreciate a free book, what the photographer in case does, or doesn't, apparently it's all up to him. What i would do on his case, would definitely be different though.

And, as an addition, good practice could mean that instead of my company hiring another photographer to take pictures of our work this Friday, he could be the one. That's a bond that could be formed but never will be. But anyway, that wasn't the question.

The point is, he already sold the photos. He already made his money on it. If nothing else it would be noble / courteous of him to share the pictures of my work that he took, with me. I'm not selling them, i would also like to credit him for it. I just think if nothing else, if i really have no rights over this, it's malpractice on his part.
