David Jay Stirs Up Controversy, Urges You to Give Up Certain Rights to Your Work

david-jay-message

David Jay, founder of PASS and Shoot and Share, is taking some heat yet again after he posted the above status on Facebook.

In the status update, Jay proposes the idea of giving up certain rights to your work in celebration of “freedom,” claiming it will make you a happier photographer and that relinquishing such rights will make the world a better place. He proposes that we ditch the old, traditional way of doing things and embrace the idea of shooting and sharing.

There are bound to be a number of different opinions on the matter, my own included, but we’ll leave our opinions out of this piece and let you take it away in the comments. What are your thoughts on Jay’s status update and the idea of handing over your images to clients?

Sound off below, but, if at all possible, keep it cordial ladies and gentlemen.
