The photographer I witnessed at yesterday’s baseball game was not employed by the newspaper. He is a freelancer and he is getting paid for the photos.
In regard to the news agency holding the rights to the photos and selling them if they wish, I guess that’s the point I don’t understand. They can shoot the event because it’s news, but then they can turn around and profit from it. Seems they an unfair advantage.
