: I regularly frequent antique stores and will pick up vintage photo albums. They are mostly unquestionably family photos taken by non-professionals. Do I have the right to publish these images since I am now the owner of the original prints? What about the photographer/their estate's implied ownership as creative works of art?
Dear Mr. Daly,
There are things that can be done. Physical ownership of the prints does not give the right right to reproduce.
You are to be complemented for your caution. There may be things that can be done nonethe less.
