“Annie Leibovitz pawns copyright to life’s work to pay debts” Telegraph.co.uk

Well, maybe if you don’t win the giveaway this week you should buy Annies books and DVD’s. A lot of them.

“Last autumn, the noted photographer famed for her iconic images of Hollywood and Washington personalities, borrowed $15.5m (£10.8m) from Art Capital Group, a Manhattan lender.
Leibovitz secured the loan partly against properties she owns in New York, but also by putting up the copyright, negatives and contract rights to every photograph she has ever taken or will take in future as collateral, according to the New York Times, which cited documents filed to the city.” credit: Telegraph (click to read)

The credit crunch hits the best of them. And here is another article on the subject.
Seems the UK is a bit more up on this than the US.
