WonderStock New Zealand Terms & Conditions of Use

Notes about Photo Ownership & Copyright:

The images uploaded to WonderStock are the property of each Photographer. By uploading them you indemnify Wonder Creative Ltd - WonderStock from the requirement to obtain model, property rights and releases etc. The copyright belongs to the Photographer. Wonder Creative Ltd - Wonderstock has distribution rights under shared copyright, that is we sell each Photographers images.

The main points of Copyright are:

 The owner of copyright in photography is either:

·  THE PHOTOGRAPHER – if the photographer is NOT commissioned or takes the photograph as an employee;


·  THE EMPLOYER – if the photograph is taken by an employee in the course of their employment;


·  THE CUSTOMER – if the photographer accepts a commission to produce a photograph.

Commissioning a photographer occurs when a person commissions (engages) a photographer to take a photograph or photographs, and at the time of the engagement pays, or agrees to pay the photographer for that work.

If the Photographer is not commissioned, then the person who took the photograph owns the copyright to that image, regardless of:

·  who owns the film or media

·  who owns the prints

·  who owns the camera
