I want to thank Undercurrent for the article "Fair for Photographers" in the Aug 2010 issue. Because of your article, I am more careful about reading the small print before letting other entities use my photos. I volunteer as a reasearch diver for a non-profit organization that raises funds for artificial reefs. I often authorize the use of my underwater photos for free if I feel it benefits this organization. Recently, I was asked by a state office to use some of my photos in their brochures. I wanted to do it until I read the release. It could be interpreted that once I let them use the photos I would no longer have a right to them. I've asked the organization to change the wording in thier release to make it clear I can still use my photos as I wish. They agreed I had a valid concern on the wording, and have sent my request to their legal department for review. Undercurrent's article on the NAUI photo competition may have saved me from a serious blunder. Thanks!
