Former AFP photographer fights agency in copyright case 

Former AFP photographer Francisco Leong has filed a lawsuit to void clause that handed copyright to the agency in a case that could “burn all journalists”. AFP’s defense argues that the news it distributes is in the public domain and does not deserve protection under copyright law as it constitutes “mere vehicles that broadcast to the public the set of facts that portray a particular daily event or news”.
