Lots of interesting photography news in the last couple of weeks! Last podcast we mentioned that 94 year old Bowens was going out of business. Their employees are furious, claiming they were not paid for July and are required to work for the duration of the liquidation process. THe US Army has called for all units to discontinue use of DJI equipment citing "cyber vulnerabilities." Also, last time we reported that the photographer whose camera was stolen by a macaque that took selfies is settling the suit with PETA. Apparently the courts are likely to rule against PETA, but Mr. Slater is now broke with all the legal fees. If you would like an easy way to register your images with the copyright office, check out https://binded.com/copyright - a free service that claims they will help register your images. Lensrentals now reportedly will soon be renting drones, VR and 360° photo and video gear.
