Copyright and Furniture

Recommended Posts

I'm sure many of you are aware of the Le Corbusier VS "Big G" lawsuit over designer furniture.

 

I'm curious, what's the stance a Shutterstock these days? This appears to only be an issue in France, but Shutterstock has buyers there.

 

I'm looking to do a shoot with some modern design furniture.... thus the curious inquiry.

It's an old topic, but I'm also interested in how Shutterstock is looking on photos of designer furniture.

I have and started to submit photos of design furniture ( they were inspired on originals in fact, but you can't see the difference on photo). They are all accepted but now, I've started to think if I'm not breaking a law by showing and selling this kind of photos.
On the other hand, we can now buy chair like the ones I have, even in Tesco, there is many of them on stocks and I see this photos quite usable for clients.

 

Have any one know a thing about this problem?

wow a chair Portfolio. I have now seen it all. LOL good Job. I shoot VERY expensive furniture for a company here in BEV HILLS. It is My Oldest client Over 35 Years. they are Insanely protective of their copyrights. They do One of a Kind stuff like $50K chairs. I don't know what to tell Ya and asking SS? Hmmmm don't think so. If mass produced I would say OK. Otherwise...Don't think I would. remember SS just has some guidelines. If something goes wrong there coming after you. Not them.
