Due to the use of digital cameras and smartphones, we take a lot of photos every day. We share, upload, and download a large number of photos on the Internet. Or if you are a photographer, you might take some great photos, and when you plan to publish or sell them, you need to pay more attention to protecting the copyright of the photos.
Since the Copyright Act of 1976 (when the U.S. adopted the Berne Convention), copyright in the U.S. has been automatic. When we use an camera and take a photo, we gain the copyright to the photo. Some cameras provide the setting to add the copyrights information. After the setting has completed, all photos will be added the copyrights info to the photo exif data.
But different camera has different setup menu item for such settings, here are the Canon and Ninkon camera.
