I was thinking about something while shooting some pictures earlier; Could freelance photographers be arrested for terrorism?
Now to make myself clear as to what I am asking... a lot of the time my stock photos are up for review. There are many times when I am contacted by
phone email, etc. asking for a certain subject. If I don't have it in my collection I will go out and shoot the subject. It isn't unusual for
clients to want landmarks, famous places, etc.
Now what I will do is get together a proof sheet and send it to them. What they like, they will pay for and I will send their ordered prints. There
are many times when I really have no idea who the client actually is.
Now on to the question:
If I sell prints to someone, and they are later arrested for terrorism or attempted, etc. and the feds find out that I sold them pictures through
records or on their computer, phone bill, etc. can I be arrested for aiding terror.
The main reason I want oppinions on this is that I am unable to do a background check on every client that I sell photos to. Could I be held
accountable for the missuse of my photos??
