Customers are both responsible and liable for the images they upload. One must have the appropriate permission or the copyright to order from us. The copyright owner of a photograph is typically the only person that can make a “derivative work”, such as an oil painting or a print on canvas from that photograph.
Copyright is created at the moment the photograph is taken and lasts the life time of the photographer plus 70 years. Please note that if you have purchased a photo from a photographer this does not automatically give you the right to have it reproduced, unless this is clearly stated in your purchase contract of the photograph.
Failure to ensure that the copyright laws are kept may result in civil or criminal penalties.
If you would like to reproduce a photo that was not taken by yourself please contact the photographer to ensure you have the correct permissions to order from us.
