CopyrightProtectionImportant Information about Copyright Protection and Your Designs

Lately we have noticed a different take on the copyright protection question. A small number of orders have been received where photographers are digitally compositing trademarked and/or copyrighted commercial images and graphics with their photography. Visual elements are being combined as backgrounds and design nodes to add a unique WOW factor to their images.

A recent example used an image from a very popular fictional movie and book character as a background. Our alert production people caught it, but even then, only after the prints were made.  And while subtle, it was a clear infraction of copyrighted material and we had to inform this client that we could not produce the product they had ordered.

Such elements can be subtle and not easily detected by our color correction and assembly associates, especially if the associate is not familiar with the elements and graphics of the copyrighted character.

It is important to recognize that these symbols, trademarks, and imaging should not be used as design elements in photography.  Protecting the legal owners of copyrighted intellectual property must be a given in our professional imaging industry and respected by all.
