Question: A newspaper used my photo with my permission but does not acknowledge me as the photographer. Can I ask them to credit me?Answer:
This may depend on the terms under which you granted the newspaper the right to use your photo. You have a right to be attributed to your work. This is one of the moral rights granted under the Copyright Act. The newspaper will be excluded from being obliged to giving you credit if you have waived this right. Although moral rights cannot be completely waived, you can agree to the newspaper’s publisher’s infringement of your moral rights.
