Copyright Your Pictures Now It’s Super Easy
I’ve been telling our NE Explorers since I began teaching, “You should copyright your pictures.” And now it’s so easy, a photographer would be crazy not to do it. All due to the new service called Binded. Even more unbelievable is the fact Binded’s service is free. Not the registration fee the US Copyright office charges—you sill have to pay that—but the help Binded provides is the FREE part.
I have to admit, I’m a bit skeptical myself. My staff here at Natural Exposures, specifically Jill Mangum, does all our registration of copyrights. So I’m fortunate not to have to go through the complicated process. But I’ve alerted Jill to look into this new service since Binded says they make it much easier. Stay tuned as we investigate this more to see if the ease of use is true and if there are any hidden obstacles not easily seen. Is it worth copyrighting your pictures? Without giving away all the details I would say yes. In fact most of you reading this would fall off your chair if I ever told you how much money we’ve made over the years tracking down those who have used our pictures without permission.
