BP oil spill

just curious but has any one taken any footage or shot photos from an rc plane of the oil spill, this seems like a serious historical event and would make for some great images?

well considering the majority of the oil spill was greater than 100nm off the coast, probly not. But i do have some good aerial photo's of the spill, but unfortunately can not post them due to contract restraints.

Yes, unfortunately there were alot of photo's taken, but they are all property of BP, so the chances of them being released ???

I am also confused with your statement of photo rights? Do you work for BP? Was the plane used to take the photo's owed by BP? The camera? there are tons of photos on the net showing the spill.

I do not work for BP, but i have more knowledge on the spill than most in the general public. All photo's/video that was taken by any person/company contracted by BP is owned by BP. And their were ALLOT of different companies/people contracted by BP and/or its affiliates for the oil spill tragedy. That is how it was explained to those of us flying the oil spill, so i assume it was communicated the same to any other company/individual contracted for work. Now those private individuals/corporations who took photo's/video's of the spill should still hold the rights to the photo's/video's.

No, there were no restrictions on the supply boats, for vendors, contractors or BP employees. Not sure who from BP told you that, but I'd love to know their name.

It came second hand by who we were contracted by who is contracted by BP and other big-name oil companies... maybe it was "different" for the aerial portion of the spill response since we had a much broader picture of everything... ????? my guess is as good as yours???
