I have been looking at the tutorials page for VP and came across the one about correcting a photograph taken of a work of art from an acute angle.
This especially caught my eye for the following reasons:-
Any work of art including photographs are copyrighted works.
Photographing a work of art in and of itself is AFAIK not an infringement of the copyright.
However, if you go ahead and reproduce it (again AFAIK even if reproduced for personal usage should require the artists permission) for publication and also commercial gain…then you have infringed the copyright!
Why do I raise this point ~ not everyone understands what they can and cannot do with copyrighted works…and to give a tutorial of how (in effect) to ‘produce’ an exact(?) copy of such a work without qualification is not a great way to promote a software product.
Yes, no doubt there are those in society that will use software tools for nefarious & illegal purposes but IMO to avoid those, who have little knowledge, opening themselves to trouble…the responsible thing to do is educate not just about the software but also the implications of its ‘incorrect’ usage.
I am sorry for beating the drum on this but the infringement of copyright is all too often ignored
