Re: Print-on-demand retrospective TOS book forthcoming
I am no expert on photographic restoration, but I trust Star Trek History in this matter. Considering that they would have likely provided their restorations for free (and at much hire quality) if the publisher had simply asked, the behavior of Jacobs Prown Press hardly strikes me as noble.
The opposite can also be said. StarTrekhistories restoration of images they do NOT own is also questionable. As I stated above photographs belong only and exclusively to the photographer who took the picture. If you have pictures taken by a photographer of your family, even if you have purchased the pictures, you do NOT own the pictures. You only own the right to reproduce them for personal use only. The photographer always retains the rights to photos they took by copyright law. So technically StarTrekhistory is just as much in the wrong here.
