I agree that the presentation elements themselves would be their own copyright, which is why I separated them. But my point was that the holder of those would have to be the school or the drama director and hence it was a "local" decision to prevent photographing, not a remote "you can't argue with them 'cause that's their stock contract" rationale. The local decision I could take to the principal and point out exactly how stupid it was to make such a decision regarding a school play. -----Original Message----- Date: Fri, 08 Apr 2005 07:30:24 +0100 From: Gerry walden <email@example.com> Subject: Re: [Leica] Taking photos during school play To: Leica Users Group <firstname.lastname@example.org> I am sorry, but I think the drama director was absolutely right if maybe a little over zealous under the circumstances. The production, the stage set, the costumes, the lighting etc. etc. would all have been copyright in their own right so it is not only the copyright of Rogers and Hammerstein that has to be taken into consideration.
