  • Can I sell photos of other peoples houses?

    I'm new to all this so bear with me if it's been discussed before. I have some shots of old Victorian houses that I have taken from the public right of way. I was thinking of printing up a few, framing them and try to sell them in a local consignment art store.

    The photos have been modified somewhat to look more like paintings than photos. Some have been submitted to Google Earth and have been accepted.

    So my question is (1) can I sell copies of these photos and (2) am I improperly submitting photos of someone else's property to Google Earth?

    I am not a lawyer, but from what I understand, any picture taken from a public space is fair game as long as it is not a classified military base etc. With that said, I also read recently that the British Govt Agency in charge of Stonehenge was trying to make a case that they owned all images ever taken of stonehenge..

          I am not an attorney so I can't give legal advice. Check out attorney Carolyn Wright at www.photoattorney.com/ for legal advice and look at attorney Bert Krages post at www.krages.com/phoright.htm. My understanding is he also provides legal advice. Bert and Carolyn have written books that have legal advice on the subject. I thought I would give referrals but since I am not an attorney this shouldn't be construed as legal advice.
