The Business Side of Ed Greenberg: Copyright Protection for Photographers
As part of our ever-growing lineup of business classes, copyright attorney Ed Greenberg sat down with Mia McCormick for an in-depth interview on the importance of copyright for photographers in his class The Business Side of Ed Greenberg: Copyright Protection for Photographers. Don’t let the name fool you though, copyright isn’t the only thing he talks about… He shares stories about model releases, contracts, and dealing with copyright infringement as well (the name of the class was already long enough though, so it’s kinda hard to fit all that in there ;-)

So, head on over to today to have your questions answered by one of the toughest New York City attorneys in the business, and leave a comment for your chance to win a free 3-day rental of this class!

About The Author


  1. I’m working now to change schedule to make PSW Orlando, hope I can make it. Raising 2 grands, it’s hard to leave the wife holding everything for a week but trying.

  2. I could use that class too!

  3. Would gladly pay to see Ed’s class. He and Jack Reznicki are merciless against those who think it wise to rip-off photographers and at the same time are very helpful in being the ringside coaches for the little guy against the heavey-weight champion big companies. Without their presence, I would basically be guessing my way as a commercial photographer rather than knowing how the industry works, and how to avoid the pitfalls.

    I was not paid to say this even though it totally sounds like it.

  4. The Speed Pass is just what I need to sign up for PSW

  5. I can’t make any if those dates but a free trail month of Kelby training would be awesome.

  6. kelby training membership would make me a happy man

  7. It would be great to go to RC’s Richmond Class.

  8. Always wanting to learn more, be good to win this!!!

  9. Here is my comment about winning the free rental classes. Cheers!!

  10. Booked my place for the Freak Show, can’t wait, would be good to see more Kelby “stars” in London please!

  11. Would be nice to see the class by Ed Greenberg.

  12. I would love to win something. Don’t think I will be making the Photoshop Freakshow in London. If it was in St. Louis I would like to though.

  13. I’d love to win a ticket to the Photoshop CS6 class in Covington, KY. Thanks!

  14. I live in DC and would LOVE to go to Ben Willmore’s Photographic Artistry with Adobe Photoshop class here in DC!

  15. I would love to see the Ed Greenberg class

  16. these two guys rock!

  17. Glyn and Calvin rock!!!

  18. That Ed Greenberg class sounds good.

  19. I would love to ask Ed a question. As a Photoshop Designer what is his opinion on working on other’s images. If someone hires you to work on their images are you responsible if THEY did not follow all the copyright laws.

    • I’m not quite sure I understand your question. IF you are asking whether a re-toucher gains or can properly register a copyright in an image created by another person, the answer is “no”. If I have just answered a question that you didn’t ask, please as they say in my business, “rephrase”.

  20. ooo this is for the speed pass…..btw, I love all the photoshopusertv shows…..sooo helpfull

  21. I have a question for Ed. When it comes to portraits, wedding, editorial and commercial; do you need to have different contracts or does one for all types work and you just have to modify? ON the other note, I just received my brochure yesterday from PSW, man I would love to head down there, not only it will be the first time for me, but gosh I can just imagine all the teachings and networking i can get out of it… Hint hint……. :)

  22. I would like to see RC in Richmond.

  23. So far as I can remember, Kelby training and many other photographic seminars have never been to Memphis, TN. Why is that. ? ? ?

  24. The photographic artistry workshop in NYC looks really cool. I’d love to win a ticket to that for March 19.

    Ed’s videos on are a fantastic resource. So is his book he wrote for photographers. Definitely worth checking out his interview.

  25. Would really like to learn more about copyrights, especially as it relates to Creative Commons.

  26. I certainly need to go learn about Copyrights

  27. I have Ed’s book that he co-authored with Jack Reznicki, “Photographer’s Survival Manual: A Legal Guide for Artists in the Digital Age,” and I would really like to win and see a related “movie.”

  28. Would love to win a free speed pass! Signing up for the show soon. Very excited to attend my first Photoshop World!

  29. Since Scott will be shooting Falcons v Niners this sunday…Go Niners!!!

  30. From what I’ve heard, Ed is the go-to guy for photographer copyright. Haven’t seen one of his classes yet though . . .

  31. I have my calendar marked for March 19th in NYC. Looking forward to it. Thanks Scott.

  32. Glyn is really good. And his German language skill also improve !

  33. Would love to win the 3-day copyright class rental. Thanks!

  34. The seminars by Ben that I attended in the past were excellent. With my
    current main interest being compositing using Photoshop, I would
    > appreciate a free ticket to his seminar in Washington, DC on March 20th.

  35. It would be great to travel from Indy to Covington to see RC
