The question of customer awareness comes into picture because my
brother was not even aware of this issue till he requested a soft-copy
of the wedding photos so that he can easily share with family and
friends over the Internet. Now he regrets his decision of hiring that
photographer. Maybe he has learnt his lesson well, and next time will
be prepared to ask the right questions before hiring a photographer.
But don't be too dismissive of customers. Customers might be common
people but when they organize they normally get what they need.
