Lilley v. Stout

384 F. Supp. 2d 83 (D.D.C. 2005)

The court referred to several other photographers (Weegee, Eugene Atget, and August Sander) as examples of those whose principal purpose in taking photographs was not necessarily artistic. The results, nevertheless, are well-regarded works of art. The complexities of the photographic process and the steps thereof also muddied the issue of what purpose the photograph was meant for.
