I am about to do a website for a former US Olympic athlete. She wants to use
several of the photos taken of her during the Olympics, and afterwards, like
when Campbell Soup used a photo of her (and paid her for it). Another photo
was in Life Magazine.
So the question is - what about the copyrights on these photos? Since they
are of her, does she have any rights to use them on her website for her
business? Or does she have to track down the photographers, call Campbell
Soup, etc. and get their permissions?
