No. Because when the stranger is taking the pic of/for you, he is doing so at ur request, or, on ur behalf. Therefore, he is not the copyright owner but an agent of the copyright owner (yourself).Although I'm not a lawyer. I just like arguing like one :)
i love the copyright law :)
Do you know of any cases involving this sort of thing? I think that lord kahless could have a point, but usually doesn't one snap photos of one's friends for oneself rather than at the request of the friends?
Liz: No, I don't know of any cases. After some more research, I concluded that this example would be considered a work for hire similar to a newspaper or magazine hiring a photo-journalist to take picture.
