The Copyright Act protects photographers by giving the author (creator) of the photograph the exclusive right to copy, edit and distribute the 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 civil and criminal penalties.

Be Sure to discuss your photography needs and copyright-related questions with your photographer; reasonable requests may be accomodated.
