MORNING TEA: Bradley Cooper Technically Owns Ellen’s Oscar Selfie

ellen-oscar-selfie-bradley-cooper

TMZ reports that Bradley Cooper — not Ellen — actually owns the most famous selfie in the world:

Here’s the way it works … the person who owns the now-famous photo is the person who actually took it … NOT the person who owns the camera or organized the shoot. … So unless Bradley signed his rights away to the Academy, he’s the copyright owner. Any use of the pic without his permission is a violation of the copyright.

Oops. Should I have emailed him before using it above?

    A very nice picture. I’m always amazed at the beautiful teeth. Not one is discolored or crooked. Wow, how is this possible, you ask? Nice contracts are the answer. If you want to know if an actor has “arrived”, look at the teeth.
