Avoid Cloud Computing Copyright Infringements

With an increase in the use of cloud computing, the level of material protected by copyright is also now a big part of technology.  The legal aspect of protecting copyrighted material in the cloud computing age has provided an extra challenge to those who produce copyrighted material.  This includes everything from movies to texts, photographs as well as computer programs, video games and more.

According to an article in PC Magazine, “The United States Department of Justice put the hammer down, charging (File Sharing Site) owners with online copyright infringement. Seven people and two corporations…were indicted by a New York grand jury and charged with a variety of crimes…in the wake of this news…several file-sharing sites changed their operation methods.”

Cloud Computing Elements

There are three acknowledged parts to cloud computing.  Software as a service (SaaS), which deals with software developed for cloud computing.  Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), which utilizes a third party’s server space for file storage.  Platform as a Service (PaaS) is a cloud computing platform software developers often use.

SaaS Copyright Issues

One of the copyright issues with SaaS concern a company’s terms of use.  It is a mistake for anyone using software to assume they can automatically make a copy of it.  They could easily be on the wrong side of the copyright law.  This is especially problematic when a company is providing software and does not clearly state under the terms of use in their agreement to not copy software.

IaaS Copyright Issues

Providing clear wording in the terms of use with IaaS is essential for copyright protection.  These terms of use must include details as to the criteria to be met for anyone to download content onto their computers.  There are specific statutes that state when it’s acceptable for an individual to utilize copyright protected files without obtaining consent.  Certain types of material can be used for personal use without copyright infringement but not when used for commercial purposes.  This cannot be done if the work is protected using Digital Rights Management (DRM) technologies.

PaaS Copyright Issues

There are fewer copyright issues unique to PaaS cloud computing.  The reason for this is because work created by a developer.  When this is done it’s understood the created work is under copyright for the name of the developer who created it.

3 Reasons to Consider Hosting Professional Pictures Before the Holidays

If you’re a professional photographer you know how important it is to have a place to showcase your work.

With the holiday season just around the corner and families investing in holiday photos it’s even more important.

Here are the three best reasons to consider hosting professional pictures with Wikipixel before the holidays.

OpenDAM is a cloud service where you can have your digital files hosted but there’s so much more to what you can do that will make your business easier to manage.

  1. Quality.
    By using OpenDAM to host your photos, you are able to share the photos how they were intended to be. Many people share photos on social networks but certain sites compress the image, making it less clear and making the work seem not as good as the original. If you really want your work to stand out, the only thing to do is to use a service that keeps the original image intact. Social network sharing is fine to show off an image you like but it’s not ideal for your customers because they won’t see your true work in its entirety.
  2. Convenience.
    Having a place for your customer’s photos to be viewed allows you to not have to worry about bringing a portfolio to meet in person like in years past. This also takes some of the stress off of the customer because they can view at their convenience instead of feeling like they have to make an instant decision. Since you can share among multiple users, the entire family doesn’t even have to be in the same place to view their proofs.
  3. Ability to Search.
    With the ability to tag photos with any search term you need, you are able to find photos easily. For instance, if you have multiple family photo sessions to sort through you can name each set by the family’s last name or location. Even within a family set, you can add tags so that you can find a certain image. For example, if you have the Smith family and they had some photos at the beach and some in their home you can label the photos accordingly.

The photography world is more competitive than ever so it’s important to have an edge over everyone else.

By hosting professional photos with OpenDAM you have the ability to search easily, display with ease and everything you do has the quality look that you can be proud of.
