Here's the scenario
- A user takes a photo using an app from a book, which might have be copyrighted.
- The app then uploads the photo to a cloud service in order to analyze it using OCR
- The app receives the OCR result and extracts 100 (most used) words from it in order to process the result within the app
According to the cloud provider the data gets deleted on call of the app or within 24 hours. The data is only accessible by the app once. Neither is more than an excerpt extracted nor is the photo accessible once it has been send to that server. Also there is no way the result contains a whole sentence of the page (only single words).
My major questions in my head for that case would be:
Does making a photo of copyrighted material equals to making an illegal copy?
Does sending that photo to a server to process count as distribution?
