All photographs are now protected by copyright
With the copyright revision, all photographs are now protected across the board - regardless of whether they were taken by a professional or an amateur. This now also includes everyday snapshots, family and holiday photos, landscape pictures, product shots, press photos, etc. Thus, from now on, the permission of the copyright holder is always required if these images are to be used.
The prerequisite for protection is that the image depicts a three-dimensional object that was photographed with a camera or mobile phone. Protection of two-dimensional originals, i.e. a photocopy, photo of another image, photographs of texts and plans, etc., is not included.
