My question involves personal property located in the State of: California
Let's say you shoot a video of a news worthy occurrence and post it on social media. The news media - should they wish to use it - will likely ask for permission. But this raises several questions.
1) If the news media uses it without your permission, what is your best course of action? Would you be entitled to some sort of settlement?
2) If the video has been posted on social media, what is your best course of action to prevent news media from using it without your permission?
3) If the news media requires your permission, then why are they allowed to publish videos - without permission - which one films in which a crime is alleged to have occurred?
