Details about what "copyright" really means...
and why at the end of the day, I still fully own outright, the images I create.
"When a photographer creates an image, it is automatically copyrighted and protected per
The Copyright Law – USC Title 17.
This gives the photographer (creator of the image) exclusive right to copy, edit, print, distribute, post on Facebook, blog, etc.
These rights make it illegal for anyone else (even if you are in the image) to
copy, scan, edit, print, or distribute any versions of the images
(printed or digital)
without the photographer’s permission.
This is a Federal Law and can be prosecuted as such.
Illegally downloading, screen capturing, watermark removing, or altering the images
in ANY way is strictly prohibited.
When you purchase any digital collection from me, you are getting a
print release, not a copyright release.
I still own the photos and the copyright, but you are free to take the images and get as many prints as you would like, in any size, from an exclusive source
(that info will be in your print release).
You may not edit the images in any way
(this even means ordering a black & white print of an image that is on your disk in color only),
let others use them for advertising, or enter them into contests without my permission.
you may not make copies of the disk
to share with family and friends.
If in doubt, just email me and ask!
Please respect my business and my work.
This is my “job” and how I help to support my family. "
