Jay Miller, a professional aviation photographer, will give a short presentation on photo copyright based on a recent experience he had with a major client.

The importance of copyright remains one of the big elephants in the room for most professional – and even non-professional – photographers. Ninety-five percent do not register their photographs and do not fully understand the importance of doing so. For Jay, it was a lesson learned – but one with a happy ending.
