Default Re: Pictures - Copyrighted???

A company can get stuck with a huge fine for reproducing copyrighted materials, even if you use the 'do it yourself' machines. Some photo paper will have copyright stamped all over the back of the pic. I had a drug store that would not let me make copies of a pic (it didn't say copyrighted anywhere) on their machine because it 'looked' professional. I have had a machine detect the copyright in the paper & wouldn't let me print it. Most will let you do pics if they are 'old' but legally you need a release from the company. For all the people that are 'by the cruise line rules' (such as formal night, shorts in dining room etc) you are breaking the law producing copyrighted pics without a release )
