Q: What about photo copyright?

In the majority of the cases the copyright of a photograph belongs to the person that took the photo.
People sharing photos via Newslinn agree to allow journalists and bloggers use their photographs for
editorial purposes only.
So people sharing photos directly from their smartphone are the owners of the copyright of photos
they took.
One of the key aspects of our UGC technology focuses on fraud prevention and filters out photos and
users that don’t match the fingerprint of a photo shared via smartphone, we also check for common copyright
metadata and validate if the image has been edited amongst other things.
