Who owns the rights to Vivian Maier?

Nanny and photographer Vivian Maier never sought fame during her lifetime, but things have turned around quite a bit since she passed away in 2009. Her photos have been exhibited around the world, there have been two books, countless articles and a documentary film is in the works. But now there’s a question of who owns the rights to her photographs. Gaper's Block writer Julia Gray and attorney Rebecca Wellenfelsz explain what's next for Maier's legacy.
