Third Party Copyrights
Creations respects the intellectual property of authors and creators of visual images and we ask our customers to do the same.
A copyright exists in nearly all images and artwork, even ordinary family photos. In general, the copyright is owned by the person who took the photograph. Separate copyrights may reside in the photograph and its subject, if it is itself a work of art. A copyright in an image need not be registered as it exists as an ownership right as soon as the image is created. Copyright vests in its owner the exclusive right to make copies, publicly distribute copies, publicly display the work, and prepare other works based on the original. It is generally illegal to copy, print or digitally reproduce photographs taken by others without their permission. Federal law provides both civil and criminal penalties for violation of a copyright. Creations and its customers are each subject to the copyright laws.
Images downloaded from the internet or scanned or copied from print publications should be presumed to be protected by copyright. Additionally, images photographed by professional photographers are also presumed to be protected by a copyright retained by the photographer. If we cannot make the copies or provide the digital services for you, go to your photographer or the source and request them. A professional photographer will do their best to see that your needs are met. If they cannot make the copies, they may authorize us to make them.
