Copyright 2010 George Dillin
Some people mistakenly think that it's fine to copy a print once they have paid for it, or that copying is
permissible if they don't plan to sell the image. Both are false.
Copying images without the artist’s permission is illegal and punishable by up to a $150,000 fine. Scanning, emailing or making copies at a copy center or at home are all illegal.
Professional portraits are not required to have a stamp or copyright notation to indicate copyright, although this is indicated on many prints.
It is understandable that you love your images and want to share them. That means the photographer did his job well and should be fairly compensated for his hard work.
George has gone to great lengths and expense to use only the best equipment and professional photo finishing services to create a top-quality product.
Scans create embarrassingly low-quality images that can unfairly harm the photographer's reputation.
George reserves the right to refuse service to anyone who copies her work without permission.
Copyright violations will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
