Use of Images
In 1976, the Federal Government passed the copyright law to prevent the copying of protected materials, including books, sheet music, and professionally created photographs.
The portraits you have commissioned us to create are from one of the most celebrated custom boutique studios in the industry. Forever Young Photography invests heavily in education and training in order to provide the highest level of quality of photography. As such, duplicating, scanning or copying images creates a severe loss of color, clarity and permanence in the portraiture.
Since such losses reflect poorly on the reputation of our professional work, Forever Young Photography has reserved the copyright on each portrait we create.
We sincerely appreciate your understanding and cooperation in helping us continue to provide the highest levels of quality and integrity for which we are known.
The US COPYRIGHT ACT
The COPYRIGHT ACT protects photographers by giving the author of the photograph the exclusive right to reproduce your photographs, including the right to control the production of copies.
It is illegal to copy or reproduce these photographs elsewhere without our written permission.
Copyright infringement is a felony and is punishable by civil and criminal penalties. The law also
specifies damages at $150,000 per infringement.
