So. I work for oregon state university. And i take a photo of the osu campus. Can osu claim rights to that photo? and legally make me turn over the photo to them?
I believe that's a whole different story. That post IIRC was to do with the logo being used?I think they can if they pursue it.
Read my post #3
Ford was trying too

It's not an exact image, it's to do with a 'building clause'. Certain building are considered like art or photographs and images of them can't be used without permission. Just like a model clause, you have to get the model to sign to allow you to sell any images of him/her. Buildings are the same but a little more tricky because not all buildings have such an image to protect.If osu campus has registered a trade mark of the exact image then. No
It all sounds absurd to me but here in australia the sydney Opera House set a legal milestone by registering a trade mark of the exact image.
If I wanted to legally use a picture of the opera house then I would assume I could download one from their official FB page which means they have agreed to the following FB terms. How that would stand up in a court I am unsure.
not really worried, just more curious as to where the legality stands on this issue. if they want it, they can have it... i hate confrations.why are you worried about this?
