The new terms require that freelance photographers surrender ‘all rights’ to images taken on assignment for the roughly 60 niche publications Time Inc. UK owns. Interestingly, these cross-publishing rights are only applicable to Time Inc. UK’s niche publications, not its weekly TIME news magazine. Such an exception is small comfort to many photographers, though. David Hoffman, spokesperson for Editorial Photographers UK (EPUK),...
