    Copyright & Intellectual Property Links

    Links have been provided below firstly to educate and inform those who know little about using photographs and secondly to provide updated and useful links for those working in advertising and publishing. Some photographers supply 'Microstock' or 'Royalty Free' photos but we believe this damages photographic standards and creates problems for the professional publisher; examples can be found below

    COPYRIGHT PROTECTION AND CHARGING A PROPER LICENSE FEE FOR PHOTO USE IS ESSENTIAL TO THE LIVELIHOOD OF CREATIVE ARTISTS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS
    TO USE PHOTOS WITHOUT PERMISSION IS THE SAME AS STEALING AND WILL PUT ARTISTS OUT OF BUSINESS
