"Canon Italy Posts Landscape Composite Without Credit, Stolen Elements, and Taken on a Fujifilm" by Robert K Baggs, Jan. 10, 2018 "Fstoppers" "Canon Italy Posts Landscape Composite Without Credit, Stolen Elements, and Taken on a Fujifilm" This picture has caused Canon a lot of embarrassment. But it brings up an interesting problem. As far as I know, you can "copy" to an extent legally, but then the problem becomes one of limits. I have no issue with the criticism that if the "original" picture was completely protected (IE, there was not indication that the photographer "allowed" re-use) then yes, even if only the sky was taken, then it was too much (almost half the picture). Reading some of the criticism gets me a bit annoyed though. One post suggests that the water was taken because there are similar current patterns. Anyone who does a lot of pictures of rivers will know that such similarities are not that unusual. But it is a very unpleasant situation.
