Copyright does remain with the photographer yes. However, as Lockie said, if you use one of your photos taken in any SANPark for commercial gain (you are making money from this photo being published) you need to contact SANParks and from there fees, permissions etc will be negotiated. There are topics that explain this in greater detail on the forums if you wish for more info.

Speaking of copyright, what will the position be if the author of a book has passed away, and there is no testament dealing with his rights in terms of the book? What if the publishers of a book have been liquidated and the business has closed it's doors? Does anyone have the right then to copy the book?

Please would you give the link(s), DB? It's an interesting topic and one that could affect many people with commercial aspirations. :thumbs_up:

Now I could delete the above post and post after Bert again, just to give you even more hope OWN :twisted:

I have tried to find more such links, no luck yet, but that one is the latest, providing the latest regulations on SANParks' part.
