Taylor Swift rips up contract that was ripping off photographers ...


"The Bad Blood between singer Taylor Swift and concert photographers is history – unless she writes a song about it.

"Swift’s legal team has agreed to revise the photography contact for her 1989 World Tour after a widely reported backlash from photographers and boycotts of some of her shows.

"They were reacting to Swift’s open letter to Apple complaining about its initial decision to not pay artists during the trial period of Apple Music. Apple backed down. Photographers, however, called her a hypocrite because of an overreaching photo agreement that gave her unlimited free use of any photos taken at her show, plus the right by members of her team to forcibly remove images from their cameras.

"The Poynter Institute on Tuesday reported that language from the contract was removed or rewritten after negotiations between Swift and news organizations and professional photography associations."

So, yeah, we photographers love Taylor Swift. Read more, here.
