Who owns the copyright to a screen grab of a website?

Perhaps this is along the lines of extracting a piece of copy form a website and "quoting" it elsewhere. It is always best to reference where the copy came from... in the same way a screen shot is a reference to someone else's thinking. Therefore it will no doubt be referenced as such. I'm not sure 'copyright' comes into it, unless the screen grab is altered and then used for passing off as someone else's work - but then it will not have any of the interaction that makes it a website.

Interesting how the dynamics of social media work. I shall preserve this thread as an example. Well done, Howard. It seems to me as though you achieved a 100% mark for effective use of a forum! If I ever need a Patent or Trade Mark Attorney, I shall know precisely where to go! Perfect.

It's a lawyer you need to ask, not ecademists ... (!!) It's not straight forward and it depends how and where you use a screen shot. I doubt you'll get an answer here and if you do, make sure you double check it - with a lawyer.

If you create an original work then you automatically own the copyright If it is a derivative work then it is subject to dispute you are permitted to use a work of art for critical or fair use - or take a photo of the mona lisa and then put a moustache on it and claim it as an original ,,, its been done before but why do you ask? is someone stealing your format - or are you wanting to ride piggy back on someone elses work..

Who owns the copyright to a screen grab of a website?

hmmmmm Is it against copyright laws to take a photograph of a "painting" and then print it? If a photographer takes a photo of a model, who owns the copyright of the photo - the photographer or the model? If a photographer takes a photo of a computer screen containing a website - who then "owns" the photo? Debate heating up this end. I've just been told that apparently it's illegal to now photograph key landmarks or places of historical interest in the UK now as well - is that true? Fraser Fraser J. Hay P.S. By the way, Do you struggle to generate NEW fans, friends and followers online? Would you like more signups, downloads or revenue from your website?

Who owns the copyright to a screen grab of a website?

I'm confused. (I'm also NOT a photographer :) ) When a photographer takes a photo of a "subject" do they not own the copyright of the photo unless otherwise negotiated? I'm curious as to whether a screen grab is deemed a "photo" (image of a subject) and does the the action of taking the screengrab/shot (image) belong to that of the "snapper" and not the site owner? Hmm (It's causing a healthy family debate at this end too.) ;) Fraser Fraser J. Hay

Copyright in the design of the page will belong, in the first instance, to the web designer, but the page could include copyright works such as photographs and artistic works of others too. The rights can be assigned, so they could, for example, belong to the person whose website it is. Howard Withers & Rogers LLP Patent & Trade Mark Attorneys

You probably breached the copyright doing it. Unless they had assigned a copyfree to the page. What happened to Andy Warhol when he used Heinz Beans and Coke cans?

I'd like to know this too Fraser. Strongly suspect that it belongs to the site designer but it's an interesting question. I have to speak with my patent agent tomorrow - he'll know :) Phil Shepherd GOOISOFT Great minds think differently
