What Is a Copyrighted Photo? A copyrighted image is one that is protected by copyright. That mean someone owns the image: someone either paid to own the image, or created the image; either way, the image is not free. You can assume any image you find on the web is copyrighted and that you may not download and use it for anything (nope, not even your not-for-profit study abroad blog) without paying for it or getting permission to use it without paying for it from the image’s owner.
You already own the copyright on anything original that you have made such as a photo. The problem arises when someone else tries to rip you off and you have to prove that you are the owner of the copyright on your photos. By registering your copyright online, you get independent proof that you own the copyright on your photos. Don’t worry! You already own the copyright on the original photographs you have taken. Now, you just have to prove it! You can do this by registering your copyright at the proper place.
Registration of a Copyright for a Photo It is not necessary for one to register to claim copyright as acquisition of copyright is automatic and comes into existence as soon as the work is created. That said, certificate of registration of copyright and the entries therein act as prima facie evidence in a court of law. A copyright is seen to be infringed when a copyrighted work is reproduced, distributed or displayed without the permission of the copyright holder. To better face such an eventuality, registering for a copyright would be productive.
