More Evidence Against Selling Copyright

My local paper has a story this morning about the archive of one Milton Greene, who passed away some 30 years ago, going up for sale – negatives with copyrights included.

Why is his archive important? It may contain thousands of unseen images of Marilyn Monroe who he photographed more than 50 times. By law, the copyright was handed over to his heirs upon his passing, unfortunately his son sold them in what he admits was a very bad business deal.

Your images are worth more than you think.
