In our post of yesterday, we reported on a copyright infringement case brought by Getty Images that has provoked debate from those who question whether Getty enforces its copyrights too vigorously, taking advantage of the fact that the legal system in this country (England and Wales) is set up to favour copyright owners.
A further point to be made in this respect is that it is not just big companies such as Getty Images that can benefit from the legal system governing copyright. Smaller companies and individual photographers can also benefit from the prevailing legal system governing copyright and use the way the system operates to their advantage in copyright disputes.
