In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at time warping, a lawyer pops off, Tullo's black-and-white dog show photos and Friday's celestial event.
- What better day than a Friday for a little time warp? Start at either end: The Week in Pictures: Feb. 10, 2017 or 50 Years Ago: A Look Back at 1967. Of course, there's always tomorrow.
- In Readers Beware, Lawyers Are Not Judges, Geenberg (the copyright attorney) and Reznicki (the photographer) point out, "Not all lawyers know copyright law as a result of actually practicing it." In fact, it's something of a specialty. So when a lawyer dismissed a German pharmaceutical company's alleged copyright infringement, Reznicki disagreed with the lawyer's opinion as "completely unsupported by case law, actual experience or references to sections of the Copyright Law itself. Not the first time I've run across a lawyer who might not really know this part of copyright law, as it pertains to photographs."
- Doggy Drama presents scenes from the 140th the Westminster Dog Show shot by Vincent Tullo -- and they're all in black and white to capture "the triumph and the torment experienced by both the dogs and their human handlers." They could have used a bit more detail in the shadows, though. The devil, after all, is in the details.
- In A Guide to Friday's Comet-Eclipse-Full-Moon Triple Feature, CNET shows you where the moon will be visible and how to find the comet. We'll just add, put on a coat and don't use flash, eh? Meanwhile, for the rest of us, Google's sale of its in-house satellite business to Planet promises "a 50-trillion-pixel image of Earth, refreshed daily, is coming later this year." No coat required.
More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
