    Is it just me who has noticed...but surely people are giving you props for taking a picture of another person's photograph. This is wrong surely? What have you done to change, add value or show anything other than a copy and crop some off! You seem to be exploiting the intended dynamic of the ad and I am not sure that this is really ethical. Do you see what I mean? People are commenting about the look in her eyes which has nothing to do with you.Perhaps you could explain to me what your idea or concept is here please?

    Wow, that's a whole issue you're rising here, Jason, I mean, I didn't anything deliberatly to hide the fact, that the girl is part of an advertisement, (and I am sure that most of the commentarist did notice this fact), so in that sense, I am not chating anyone, What ethic, moral code prohibits taking photos of adds? You will find millions of hotos of adds in this site, they are part of our daily experience. Besides, authorship is a very fluctuant term now a days. What are we doing but interpreting and reinterpreting or recicling the existing? But, o.k., you are right, Jason, it's not an original picture, it's just a crop, nothing special etc. and I am sure, it won't be published (for exact those reasons), so calm down, please.

    I like this shot! It didn't confuse me.

    I totally agree with Jason on this. I agree that we, as artists, are always interpreting and recycling the existing STYLES not photographing others photography and calling that recycling.

    is great for information like this to come out, regardless of who/ what it considers. Not too many people out there have taken the time to read & understand the DCMA or the law regarding photography and publications.
    regarding recycling specifically in this example, the DCMA states that someone can not use or modify a copyrighted image without permission from the original artist/owner. it does appear to be the main subject and not a concominant subject.
    Public Domain:
    the ad does appear to be located on public domain, and the law does permit photographers to shoot anything from/ on/ in public domain. Selling or publishing the image for profit might bring crediting, creation, and royalty issues, along with not having permission from the model in the ad for use by whomever is doing the recycling.
    Look Out!
    McDonalds and a few other conglomarants are lobbying to pass a bill that would make it illegal to use a photograph taken from the sidewalk if their logo happened to be in it. They're trying to have us require licensing for such images.
    in all, i like to follow a policy of not photographing other people's art without being asked to do so. IF YOU DO, email them your image of their art and obtain permission from the artist first. not a big deal to get, some artists will think your perspective on their art is cool, others will bark at you. Same goes for your image of their artwork, they can't use it without your permission.
    i paint, so when i'm on an expedition, i do bark at people for shooting an original artwork that's not public domain, it's not ethical and it's stealing - if you like it, buy it, then you can make personal photos of it for your own walls is fine.
    unfortunately for us artists, the law prevents us from publicly publishing our points of views of anything regarded as 'original art' without permission from the owner - but we do it all the time.
    You'll often see (used with permission by -author-) on a properlly vouched for recycled image.
