Should the employment contract with our nanny state that she cannot publish pics of our children on the net?

Should I state specifically in the employment contract with our nanny that she cannot publish photos of our children on the internet or in other media?

    You should not **have** to do this.

    People who post pictures of people without their permission are **already** in violation of copyright (with very few exceptions.) It’s just that most of the subjects don’t pursue it.

    Just tell her so, and that will be that.

    If you don’t want her to do so, then yes – put it in the employment agreement, because if you don’t, it’s legal for her to do so.

    Doumbeck – you are COMPLETELY wrong.

    The copyright in a photograph belongs to the person who takes it, NOT the person who’s in it. The nanny can take pictures all day and post them wherever she wants. If she uses them commercially, then the kids (through their parents) would be entitled to a model fee, but if she just sticks them up on a website of her own she’s legally completely above board.
