Photography

Photography is treated differently than other art forms in the Copyright Act. In cases where a photo is taken by someone who is not being commissioned to take the photo, the photographer is the copyright holder for the standard term of death plus 50 years. If the photographer is under contract to a corprate entity, the entity will hold copyright, but only for 50 years. This is the only exception to the “death plus 50” provision in Canadian Copyright law.
