The recent Microsoft Pro Photo Summit in Redmond, WA featured many panel discussions on the business of professional photography today. Among the discussions, some of the most interesting involved copyright protection for photographers and the new "orphaned works" legislation proposed by Congress.
In this podcast, I discuss my impressions and some of the highlights from the Summit, including a little background on Orphan Works.
