: : Dear Mari,
: Many Portrait Studios now offer their customers a picture disk. The customer is buying the right to use that disk for their personal use. Which would include using the disk to print out pictures etc. However the pictures on the disk are of a low resolution and do not print out well past a wallet or 3 x 5 size depending on the studio. This is done on purpose by the studio so that they don't lose money on prints. I would think the customer could let you use that registered copy of the picture disk to make shirts etc. As long as the "customer" is not using it for profit. Research that aspect.
: : : 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.
