Summary "The Law of Photography and Digital Images" provides in a single volume a text for legal practitioners covering all areas of law relevant to photography. It combines coverage of core topics, such as copyright and passing off with those where the law remains grey and relatively untested, such as the internet and implications of the Human Rights Act 1998. The work is divided into three parts - Rights in the Image, Place and Subject Matter of Photographs, and Use of Photographs. Topics covered include moral rights, trade marks, reporting restrictions, privacy, trespass, harassment, obscenity and data protection. There is detailed consideration of problems specific to photographs within each area of law together with an overview of the general principles. There is also detailed consideration of decisions of the Press Complaints Commission and the Advertising Standards Authority
