Mmmm, but does requesting someone to take a photograph

don't think it
If you were on holiday and asked a passing random person to
use your camera to take a picture of you, I suspect that you
would be quite surprised were they to attempt to assert
copyright over the picture.
That's quite true, as I've already noted. But even if they fade away and
never claim copyright over the photograph they have just created, how can
this give YOU the copyright? There has to be some explicit assignment of
rights for the copyright to be transferred to a new owner.
