Re: “Memphis Animal Services Enforces Policy Banning Photographs of Certain Animals

A viable solution has been given...post a link to Pet Harbour on your website and the problem is solved...Using images without the owner's consent or editorial license can create a host of problems...Once you enter the shelter and take photographs the City cannot control how those pictures are used and in some situations could receive backlash...thus they have rules in place...you can take all the pictures you want once they become "our property"...you have "our consent"...Sounds fair...

Re: “Memphis Animal Services Enforces Policy Banning Photographs of Certain Animals

I wish that someone would show me "factually" where I am incorrect..You can't because I'm not...Any property that belongs to someone is protected be it tangible or intellectual...you can not display images of it or likenesses thereof without the owner's consent...Example...the producers of the Kardashians reality show were sued because the exterior pictures of the house they displayed on the show was owned by someone else and they had no contractual agreement to use the image...Do your due dilligence ...Because I have done mine....Or you can just continue to pontificate...Either way is fine by me... :) ...And I repeat..if this is about saving animals...Post a link on your site to Pet Harbor...Problem solved...

Re: “Memphis Animal Services Enforces Policy Banning Photographs of Certain Animals

Sorry that you can't step outside of your emotions long enough to recognize that factually I am correct...And no I was not the one who brought up Pet Harbor...I am an animal lover however I am no more a fan of the City of Memphis than I am of any of the groups who oppose their practices...I am on the side of right...To suggest that anyone would rather see a dog euthanized as opposed to being reunited with their owner sounds like the rantings of someone who is depraved....Respectfully if someone is savvy enough to navigate the Web and find this relatively new group who wants to take photographs they should certainly be able to contact or visit the Shelter who's been around forever....If the intent is to save the animals just post a link to Pet Harbor....Problem solved!

Pet Harbor is a nationally recognized network and their agreement offers protection against copyright infringements...as lackluster as the City's response may have been it does not negate the fact that they are factually and legally correct in not allowing these animals to be photographed prior to becoming property of the City of Memphis...

Re: “Memphis Animal Services Enforces Policy Banning Photographs of Certain Animals

The problem with MAS allowing pictures to be taken by these community groups prior to the 72 hour waiting period is that that these pets are not the City's property.....Both actual and intellectual property are protected by laws and in the event that such pictures are displayed publicly without owner authorization as advertisements or such it could create a host of legal problems...in addition some of these groups such as Community Action for Animals may be self proclaimed organizations and not be legally recognized entities with the State of Tennessee...these things should and must be considered before giving weight to claims, statements made by, and requests for information to include photographs
