yes the photographer does, he/sheworks for a recongnized news agency. If you work for a newspaper or tv station, you will have identification stating so. they are not getting paid for the photos, they are getting paid to take the photos. being a news agency, they hold the rights to photos or video they collect and if they want to sell them, that’s their right.
If you want to be able to make a buck selling DVD’s of events, you need to approach the organizations holding those events in advance and set up a deal with them or get their permission. But to just come to an event and shoot and attempt to sell dvd’s of it is not a viable option.
