 + ​====== The difference between photographs and mere photographs ======
  
 + 
 +
 +Some laws distinguish between **photographs** and **mere photographs** (eg Spain and Ecuador), providing different levels of protection to both.
 +
 +Thus, the **photographs** are considered //"​works of literary, scientific or artistic creations"//,​ and its authors are creditors of the maximum protection afforded by the legal system, while **mere photographs** are considered //"​mere products of the industry,"//​ and lacked - for some laws - some moral rights and / or exploitation,​ or a shorter period of protection.
 +
 +Being or not a photograph or a mere photograph is a very subjective issue, however, drawing conclusions from the jurisprudence can understand that the //"​holidays photos"//,​ in general, would be considered **mere photographs**,​ while a picture of the so-called //"of author"//​ has maximum protection, and would be considered **photograph**.
