And, Janis Cox the picture of the photo package is mine, but the photographer did not have permission to “shoot” my minor child (and there is no copyright on the package, printed material, or photos themselves). Is a photo of a minor, taken without parental consent not the act of theft? Is it not stealing to take a photo of a minor child without permission then send the photos to the parents, along with a bill not wrong? How can a photographer copyright material he or she never had permission to take, especially of a minor-who cannot give consent for oneself?
