JESSICA ALBA SAYS that celebrity couples who sire a child should sell the rights to the first images of the child to the highest bidder.
Rather than deal with paparrazi stalking her, Alba sold the rights to the first pictures of her baby to OK magazine for a reported $1.5 million.
Think about this from the journalism angle - is it acceptable for the media to buy the rights to the images? Is it ethical?
If it is acceptable to pay for these images, where should the media draw the line? Should the media start paying for access to celebrities? For interviews? For other information?
Does paying for information/ images/ access change your perception of the story?
