The London correspondent of an exchange hopes that Mr Justice North's photograph deoißion will dispose once for all of the popular fallacy respecting property m private photographs. Sundry unsorupqloua photographers have olaimed the right to sell and eihibit photographs of their customers against their will, and although they had been paid for taking them.

The negative belongs to the photographer ; the copyright belongs to the person pbptogaphed.
