    'What you see is what I get': fair dealing and photographs

    Charles Swan, of niche media firm Swan Turton, has published an interesting note on the copyright protection available to news photographers following on from a US case decided in June (Fitzgerald v CBS Broadcasting - 1,2). He contrasts the US 'fair use doctrine' with the 'permitted acts' (fair dealing) equivalent in the UK, noting the general similarity but highlighting a key difference: the UK exception doesn't apply to photographs.
