Based on my brother's recent experience with his photographer I have written an article discussing why the copyright of the wedding album
must mandatorily go to the bride and groom and not to the photographer who has been hired to provide the service of capturing the photographs. One of the reason is that the wedding album is a private recording of a private function organized by the bride and groom and so they must be able to do whatever they want with it, including complete destruction. I have listed other reasons in my blog entry. What do other Slashdot readers think about it? Will you give up your rights on your wedding album? Or were you aware of this problem during your marriage? Or were you fleeced by your wedding photographer?
