I know it can get very complicated, this one seems to be one of them.
1. A theater has a policy that no pictures can be taken during a show. Someone takes a picture anyways and posts it on facebook. What can be done, by the theater owner or by the actor/s to have the photo removed from face book and hand over the original?
The theater owner asks a photographer to come to the show and take pictures. The theater owner wants to use these pictures on his theater website.
There is no written contract, it was verbally agreed on.
The Photographer hands his pictures in low resolution for the web (72dpi) with his logo and info in the right hand corner on every picture. The theater owner asks the photographer for the originals without the logo and the photographer refuses.
To make it a bit more complicated, an actor wants one of the photos for his personal website and asks the photographer for it. The photographer wants to sell the photo to the actor. The actor asks the theater owner and he gives it to the actor for free but with the logo of the photographer, the actor removes the logo (just by cropping), the photographer threatens to sue.
What exactly can/can not be done?
