“This awesome picture was taken in Bitterroot National Forest in Montana on August 6, 2000.
The photographer, John McColgan, is a fire behavior analyst from Fairbanks, Alaska. He took the picture
with a digital camera. Because he was working at the time he took the picture he cannot profit from it;
however, we feel the picture is a once-in-a-lifetime shot and should be shared.”

Anyone know why he can’t profit from it?

    1. It’s probably in his contract that any photos taken while working are property of his employers.


    2. Photos taken while working for the U.S. government go automatically to the public domain.


    3. Most companies put a clause in their contract that any idea that is profitable on the job is theirs. This is a because if you are getting paid by them for that time, your are in essence their “property.” If I have a great idea that is patentable, I’m going to definitely have it at home or on vacation. Being mindless at work does have it’s advantages 😛


    4. Here is a link to something written by some people who connect the the Internet:


    5. I’m not Lorne Greene or anything, but wouldn’t the deer be running from the fire?


    6. You know, you’re absolutely right. You’re most definitely not Lorne Greene…
