    Bill of Rights

    I was sent this today from a friend in the US who is an illustrator, and thought that the idea is great...... just substitute the word photographer to the word illustrator.

    I wish that all my differences were "unrecognisable" ones!

    Hmmm. Ok to a point, but good professional self management is the real key. I.e. get it in writing and use your brain.

    Item 8. Re: 'Style' - that is wrong - how do you © a style? or patent it? Its too vague.

    A lot of the rest is just normal employment stuff.

    Well I'm calling dibs(an Americanism?) on Landscape Photography. Everyone else is now simply copying my photography style called lanscapes.

    That's how ludicrous it is to copyright a style.

    #8 should read that Illustrators have the right to refuse requests of copying others work... or something, that actually makes sense.
    As it is now, (and among other variations of that brief) it's implying that no one has the right to ask for an illustrator to illustrate to a specific taste of the person asking for the work to be done!
