: : My customers have requested that i make shirts and/or calendars that consist of photographs they have had taken at a portrait studio. Is it an infringement on copyright laws to use the photogtaphs? If so, would it be possible to use a portion of them?
: Dear Mari,
: It is good that you are as perceptive as you are. Paying for a portrait only give you the ownership of the picture not the rights in the image created.
: Unless there is a written assignment, there is a serious risk. Cropping the image doesn't deprive the owner of rights.
