The Copyright Act protects photographers by giving the author (creator) of the photograph
the exclusive right to copy, edit, and distribute image by sale or transfer.
These exclusive rights make it illegal to copy, scan, edit, or share photographic
prints and digital media without the photographer’s permission. Violators of this
Federal Law will be subject to its civil and criminal penalities.
Be sure to discuss your copyright needs or questions with your photographer; reasonable
requests may be accomodated.
