1.3) What is copyright?
It is the right of an author, for each individual creative or intellectual work, to enjoy the moral and economic benefits resulting from the production of his or her creation(s). By creating any artistic or intellectual work, the author gets two rights: moral and patrimonial. The moral right for an author to be identified as the creator of his or her work at all times when the work is displayed in public or published is indispensable.Economic rights are negotiable, with the author and/or his or her representative(s), for a specified period of time or in perpetuity.
Photographs are protected by copyright law, Law No. 5988 of 14 December 1973, revised by Law No. 9610 of February 19, 1998, and by Law No. 12.853, of August 14, 2013, subject to Item XXVII of Art. 5 of the Federal Constitution of 1988, which is in accord with the Berne Convention, established in 1886, in Switzerland, of which Brazil is a signatory.

to read the abovementioned copyright law in full.
1.4) When a photo and/or video features one or morepeople,do I need to ask permission from the person(s)? What are the image rightsin these cases?
Yes, anyone who publishes a still or video image of a person must have prior authorization, known as image rights, because the image of a person is protected by the Brazilian Constitution in Art. 5, Item X, which states: "are inviolable the intimacy, the private life, the honor and the image of the people, securing the right of indemnity by material or moral damage resulting from its violation."
TYBA and its represented professionals, in some cases, have signed authorization to use the image(s)of photographed and filmed people, or their parents (if they are minors), to pre-established goals. However, it is up to anindividual to be morally, socially and politically responsible for the use of his media image in context (whether used in public or private;in documents, works of art, and of public notoriety or not). If in doubt, please contact us
1.5) How do I identify on TYBA Online which photos and videos featuring individuals have pre-signed authorization for the use of his or her image?
Just check to see if "RELEASED #"is included in the picture caption.
1.6) If I "buy" an image, does it then belong to me? Can I use it as often as I like?
The amount paid for the use of an imageis restricted to what was previously agreed to, set out in writing and signed by the parties. This is called the LR (License to Reproduce Artwork or Images) agreement. To reuse an image, however, you can simply contact us
to update the conditions of your contract forthat image's use.
Note: Although the term "customer" is often used when negotiating the use of a picture, the correct term would be closer to "renter",because the right to use the image(s) are negotiated to be temporary and the property rights of the picture always remain with the author.
1.7) What exactly is an LR (License to Reproduce Artwork or Images)?
The LR is the legal basis for the publication(s) of the image(s). In an LR, all items are listed according to the type and length of publication, and must be signed by the legal representatives of all parties involved. Its absence makes the company or individual who has made use of the image(s) subject to fines and other penalties as provided by law.
