Why do people spoil a fairly decent image with a watermark that takes up about a quarter of the image ?

Is it copyright paranoia, or are they that priceless ? Just my $0.02 worth.

cowl flaps: Copyright paranoia. The website I use applies the watermarks for me. Many of my friends have had their images taken and used by various news agencies. It must be taken into consideration that said friends get approached by operators offering to buy photos for $500+ per image. It's a big IP issue which seems to plague the press.

Regardless:
The watermark isn't covering the subject of the image. It is a deterrent of sorts.

$500, you are being ripped! I once got $2,800 for a photo that made front page of the Herald.

Not a bad deal, XXX! That's enough for a new dSLR Body or Lens. Well worth it.

Goodness! Haven't I been been potentially ripped off?

My photo of the 'Cherokee Challenge' flight, last November of G-ATYS with the backdrop of Uluru appeared in 'Australian Pilot' magazine 'Dec to Jan 2014' on page 54.

But with absolutely no attribution to me as the photographer!

And I don't care even a little bit. The fun of the flying adventure to catch up with Andy and Sam was worth so much more.

This truly is a stunning country. The more and more I spend here the more I fall in love with it. Oh and you can fly Caravan EXs here too!

That would probably put you in a minority then Gerry3, I've gladly provided photographs to schools, clubs and non-profit organisations, but finding one of mine incorporated into an ad (sans permission) that I know cost someone quite a bit of money pi$$ed me off no end. A nicely worded letter accompanied by an invoice had the desired effect on that occasion.

But G3, didn't you take the photo during a private flight, to join up with your friend collecting money for charity?

Were you to charge money for the photo, there may be regulatory consequences...

And that, right there, is the reason why aviation in this country is dieing......

If there were regulatory consequences for selling a photo you took during a private flight, then we may as well close down aviation in this country, because that sort of mentality is what is killing it. How exactly is having an AOC going to make it 'safer' to sell the photo?

Piano Man, what's that yacht doing on top of the island, or are my new glasses deceiving me?

In no way whatsoever. But the classification of operations in Australia has as much to do with politics as it has to do with safety.

Don't worry: It will be all fixed in 1998 with the new, simpler, harmonised, best-practice regulations!

If you are referring to CAR 206, where does it refer to charging money? The way I read it, it defines aerial photography is a commercial purpose. It doesn't say anything about "if you charge money for the photo".

That may not be how it is usually interpreted, but that is what it seems to say.

You may well be right. Any photograph taken by anyone from the air might be “aerial photography” within the meaning of 206 and therefore unlawful unless authorised by an AOC. CARs 206 and 2(7) provide endless nooks and crannies capable of bizarre outcomes that have nothing to do with safety.

But don’t worry, come 1998….

On the other hand, CAA 27(9) refers to "flying or operation of an aircraft for such purposes as are prescribed" so perhaps you can do what you like, as long as that is not the purpose of the flight?

In general I agree about CAR 206.

Another gold mine of uncertainty and paradoxes: Ascertaining the purpose or purposes of a flying operation.
