Yes . . . I'm going to contact a lawyer but I'm starting my research here . . . Just looking for information before seeking the advice of someone who will have a financial interest. Over the last 15 years, I have shot hundreds of weddings for a particular studio. I have never had ANY form of contract. They email me information, I contact the bride, shoot the job, process the images, mail them to the studio, they mail me a check. I do receive and file a 1099 from them on my schedule C. Since there is nothing in writing, this is not "work for hire". The studio has been giving every client a letter saying that they release the copyright to the client. As I understand it, the studio doesn't own the copyright. I do. They are assigning my rights to the client without my permission. What are my options? I still have copies of every digital image that I have shot for them. I understand the copyright violations are subject to treble damages. But, how would I go about determining my damages? Has anyone else here been through this or something similar? Thanks for the help . . .
