Legal and ethical

Legal

Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988

The law gives the creators of literary, dramatic, musical, artistic works, sound recordings, broadcasts,
films and typographical arrangement of published editions, rights to control the ways in which their
material may be used.

The rights cover: broadcast and public performance, copying, adapting, issuing, renting and lending
copies to the public.

This is a CIVIL law not a CRIMINAL law.

This means it is not a criminal offence to break the law, which could result in a fine or jail sentence.

Instead, the person who owns the copyright has to sue the person they believe has broken the law.
The case is then heard in a civil court and if the person is found guilty of breaking copyright law then
they will have to pay damages to the owner of the copyright. The amount of damages is set by the
court.

the last remaining author of the work dies.

If the author is unknown, copyright will last for 70 years from end of the calendar year in which the

of the year that the work was first made available.

How does it apply to my fashion spread ?

could get prosecuted by the copyright owner.

This will apply to my fashion spread because I won’t use anything that discriminates against these
groups of people and make sure that my photo is respectful to this.

some types of protection automatically, others you have to apply for.

Obscene Publications Act 1959

article comprises two or more distinct items) the effect of any one of its items is, if taken as a whole,
such as to tend to deprave and corrupt persons who are likely, having regard to all relevant
circumstances, to read, see or hear the matter contained or embodied in it.

In this Act ‘article’ means any description of article containing or embodying matter to be read or
looked at or both, any sound record and any film or other record of a picture or pictures.

This is a criminal law.

This will apply to my fashion spread because I won’t photograph anything that includes any offensive
or explicit content such as violence or sexual content my photos will strictly be based on hip=pop
and fashion and won’t include anything obscene.

Trespass

This is a civil law.

Trespass to land consists of any unjustifiable intrusion by a person upon the land in possession of
another.

Civil trespass is actionable in the courts.


How does this apply to my fashion spread ?

This will apply to my fashion spread because when I photograph my model outdoors I will ask
permission off the land owner to use the location because this could result in breaking the
trespassing law.

Privacy

The introduction of the Human Rights Act 1998 incorporated into English law the European
Convention on Human Rights.

Article 8.1 of the ECHR provides an explicit right to respect for a private life:

Article 8 protects your right to respect for your private life, your family life, your home and your
correspondence (letters, telephone calls and emails, for example).

Privacy Law is a law which deals with the use of people’s personal information and making sure they
aren't intruded upon. These laws make sure people can't have their information wrongly used
without permission.

This will apply to my fashion spread because I won’t use any of the modes personal information or
details such as addresses names and bank accounts. This will protect the models identity and this
will keep their personal information private.

Defamation Act 2013

This Act reformed defamation law on issues of the right to freedom of expression and the protection
of reputation. It also comprised a response to perceptions that the law as it stood was giving rise to
libel tourism and other inappropriate claims.

The Act changed existing criteria for a successful claim, by requiring claimants to show actual or
probable serious harm (which, in the case of for-profit bodies, is restricted to serious financial loss),
before suing for defamation in England or Wales.

It also enhanced existing defences, by introducing a defence for website operators hosting user-
generated content (provided they comply with a procedure to enable the complainant to resolve
disputes directly with the author of the material concerned or otherwise remove it), and introducing
new statutory defences of truth, honest opinion, and "publication on a matter of public interest“.

LIBEL

A written, published false statement that is damaging to a person's reputation.


SLANDER

Making a false spoken statement damaging to a person's reputation.

Defamation is a civil law and so you would need to sue someone who you believe has damaged your
reputation.

How does it apply to my fashion spread?

This will apply to my fashion spread because my photo is not set out to ruin anyone’s reputation or
show any of my models in a bad light. I make my models dress or pose in a certain way that damages
their own reputation or someone else’s.

Ethical constraints

Rather than legal constraints, ethical issues are based on judgement. They are what society
considers as morally acceptable.

If something is seen as ethically wrong as it is first investigated to see if it is breaking any laws.
However, if it is not in violation of any of these laws then it comes under ethical issues.

This means that no law has been broken, however the public may see it as offensive or controversial.
Many ethical concerns are raised by groups of specific people. These groups may find the publication
offensive, due to how the minority are represented.

Ethical concerns which come into media production are things such as:

• Protecting under 18s

How does it apply to my photoshoot?

I will protect the under 18s in my fashion spread by making sure that my photots are appropriate for
a teen audience and that no explicit or offensive content is included. My photo will appeal to my
target audience because it will tie in with modern fashion.

• Representation of age, gender, race, disability, sexuality and religion

How will this apply to my photoshoot?

I will try to be respectful to all these different groups in my fashion spread and try to represent
these people in a positive my photo wont discriminate anyone in any way and I will make sure that
my fashion spread is appropriate.

• Using off the record information

How will this apply to my photoshoot?


I will not use any off the record information in my photo this includes there private information such
as names, phone numbers and addresses. My fashion spread won’t include any of these things any
way and it doesn’t really apply to my photoshoot.
