If you take one single frame out of a video, it does not reveal what the
person was saying

Example: a band is performing a song at a concert.  If you take a photo
or if you take one frame from the video, it does not reveal any of the
words or music.  Therefore, the copyright on the words and music are not
part of the equation for the still image / frame / photograph.

Actually, copyright also belongs to the person who wrote the song.

I use some of the images from my own speeches.  I felt it was respectful
to clarify the copyright on these images.  Based on our discussion, that
copyright probably belongs to Pascom, unless there was some contract or
some other email exchange where they already licensed or granted the
copyright to the community.

If any speaker ever wants to use their image in a book or something it
could be more significant.

No, I didn't have plans like that right now
